Infectious Diseases

Elevate outcomes through expert-developed testing

Rising global temperatures have caused a shift in climate zones and triggered a migration of infectious disease-carrying species into previously uninhabitable climate zones,1 broadening the impact of the diseases they carry. For children who become infected with bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic pathogens — many of which are passed to humans by insects — early identification of the infectious agent enables rapid intervention to pave the way for healing.

Our internationally renowned clinical microbiology laboratories’ robust menu of infectious disease testing includes individual tests and panels that aid in diagnosing illnesses caused by insects, fungal species, and parasites.
