tubesGenematrix, through its lab partners, offers Molecular Diagnostic Testing, Urine Drug Testing and Blood Chemistry Testing that focuses on providing the best possible service to its physicians and their patients. Our accredited labs provide fast turnaround times, portal access reporting, EMR Integration capabilities, in-network payor solutions and federal testing.

Molecular Diagnostic Testing

Molecular diagnostics analyzes biological markers in the genome or individual's genetic code by applying molecular biology to medical testing. Molecular diagnostics provides precise information to effectively diagnose and monitor disease, detect risk, and decide which therapies or medications will work best for individual patients on a personalized basis.

Common molecular tests include:

  • Acute and Chronic Wounds
  • Respiratory and GI Infections (RPP and GI Panels)
  • Pharmacogenomics (PGX)
  • Cystic Fibrosis Screening

These tests are useful in a range of medical specialties including Urology, OB/GYN, Primary Care, Internal Medicine, Podiatry and Long Term Care.

Urine Drug Testing

Urine Drug Testing

Urine drug tests are a simple and effective way to perform random drug testing for recent drug use. These tests are easy to use and provide fast and accurate results. Urine drug tests also have a longer detection period, typically about twice as long, as blood or saliva tests.

Urine is the ideal sample for drug testing primarily because it is an inexpensive monitoring strategy that will detect most drugs for 1 to 3 days post exposure. The benefit of urine samples for drug testing include:

  • Non-invasive testing method
  • Drugs and drug metabolites found in urine are usually stable
  • Drugs and their metabolites are often present in higher concentrations in urine than in other biological materials
  • Detectable in urine for relatively long period of time - benzodiazepines, up to 21 days; cannabinoids, up to 60 days
  • Presence of metabolites, in addition to parent drug, provides further evidence of drug use
  • Preserved by refrigeration or freezing

Blood Chemistry Testing

Blood Chemistry Testing

Blood chemistry tests or panels are groups of tests that measure chemical substances in the blood that are released from body tissues or are produced during the metabolism of certain substances. There are many different types of blood chemistry tests.

Blood Chemistry Test Substances Measured
Electrolyte Panel Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Bicarbonate
Kidney Function Tests Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN), Creatinine, Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT), Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP), Aspartate Transaminase (AST), Bilirubin, Albumin, Total Protein
Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP) Glucose, Calcium, Electrolyte Panel, Kidney Function
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) Glucose, Calcium, Electrolyte Panel, Kidney Function, Liver Function

A blood chemistry test may be done to:

  • Evaluate a person’s general health status
  • Evaluate organ function
  • Evaluate the body’s electrolyte balance
  • Identify potential organ damage or injury
  • Identify damaged tissues that secrete chemicals into the blood
