Maximum accuracy, minimally invasive

Every child deserves accurate results. That’s why we’ve developed our pediatric tests to be as minimally invasive as possible, without sacrificing accuracy. This includes low minimum-volume requirements, saliva and blood validation for many genetic tests, and second-tier testing that doesn’t require additional blood draws.

We don’t compete with hospital labs, we support them

As a hospital-based reference lab, we bring a shared business perspective to help you find new financial opportunities within your in-house lab. Our experts work with your team to uncover cost savings and maximize revenue to expand the value of your lab while transforming pediatric patients’ lives.
