Real-time PCR testing
Comprehensive testing on a single-swab identifies both bacterial and fungal species in relative quantities and antibiotic-resistance markers if present. The single swab is not only more convenient but is less invasive and costly than tissue biopsy culture. Accurate results in 24 hours ensure better and more cost-effective care.
Ipsum is a full service dermatopathology lab with board-certified dermatopathologists with decades of experience. Our services include direct (DIF) and indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) that are correlated with H&E findings for better diagnosis. We can provide results typically within 1-2 days.
