We’re thrilled to announce a significant advancement in our testing capabilities here at Garcia Clinical Laboratory. We are now offering a replacement for our traditional microscopic Trichomonas screens with state-of-the-art PCR testing for Trichomonas.

Why the change? PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) testing offers several advantages over conventional microscopic examination, including:

🔍 Enhanced Sensitivity: PCR can detect even small amounts of Trichomonas DNA, leading to more accurate and reliable results.

🕒 Faster Turnaround Time: PCR testing typically yields results more quickly, allowing for prompt diagnosis and treatment.

🔒 Increased Specificity: PCR testing can distinguish Trichomonas from other microorganisms, reducing the likelihood of false-positive results.

This transition reflects our commitment to providing the highest quality and most advanced testing services to our patients and healthcare partners. Rest assured, our dedicated team of laboratory professionals is fully trained and equipped to perform PCR testing with precision and accuracy.

For any questions or concerns, please contact our laboratory.
