What we offer

Rapid polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing of 6 sexually transmitted infections (STIs) pathogens. PCR testing allows for significant increases in sensitivity and specificity yielding the most accurate results in 24 hours or less.


PCR vs. Culture STI testing

Unlike bacterial or viral culture, PCR testing DOES NOT require the pathogen to be alive in order to identify genetic code.

Also, PCR testing DOES NOT require the infection to exist long enough to develop a detectable antibody reaction.

STIs Among Older Adults

Infection rates for sexually transmitted diseases keep climbing among Americans 45 and older, part of a larger national trend that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says must be confronted.

According to the CDC, cases of gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia among Americans 45 and older increased by 20% from 2015 to 2016. While infection rates among people ages 15-24 remain the highest, the largest increase in infection rates were among people ages 45 and up.
