molecular lab

If you have a toenail or skin infection, it is very important to determine what pathogen is causing it in order to treat it correctly, as different microorganisms respond to different treatments. It is also important to treat the infection promptly to avoid it worsening and spreading.
We have an on-site molecular lab which allows us to take a small sample of your nail or skin, and-using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology-run a molecular DNA test to detect the specific pathogen causing your infection.
Instead of having to send the test out to a separate lab and wait weeks for results, our in-office molecular lab delivers accurate results-often in the same visit-using PCR technology from Euroimmun and Bio-Rad. Our podiatrists get the precise scientific data they need to determine the necessary course of treatment and begin treatment right away.
