Posted by Sara Carpenter on Jun 30, 2022 2:31:37 PM

Molecular diagnostics. Personalized medicine. Better outcomes.

The common thread between these important facets of healthcare in our technologically
advanced society is access to tests and techniques to diagnose and develop care plans associated
with certain bacteria and viruses that cause infections and illnesses.

From Head to Toe

Through our advanced diagnostic innovations, Diax LabsTM has developed a suite of molecular
laboratory tests that gives physicians a better understanding of their patients’ health and provides
accurate, timely molecular information as the foundation for personalized medicine and targeted
care plans.

These molecular tests cover head-to-toe diagnostics for respiratory illnesses, urinary tract
infections, wound pathogens, nail fungal pathogens and COVID-19 and other viruses.

No More Guesswork About Genetic Testing

Posted by Sara Carpenter on Mar 31, 2022 11:17:38 AM

Guessing. Speculation. Uncertainty. These aren’t things you should experience when considering or discussing genetic testing and reviewing results.

In partnership with DNAvisit, Diax Labs takes the guesswork out of genetic testing and places interpretation and insights from certified genetic counselors and pharmacists at your fingertips and one phone call away.

Beyond the Basics

While you probably understand the basics about genetics, genetic testing is complicated. Test results can be confusing. And the estimated 19,969 protein-coding genes* in the human body may create important questions about testing.

DNAvisit is one phone call away as a valuable resource by voice, video and digital chat to:
√ Clarify the mutations our panels test for
√ Discuss and interpret test reports
√ Provide understandable answers to complicated genetics questions
√ Reduce your burden and liability by providing every patient with a certified genomics expert
