Absolute Precision. Absolute Care.

Our testing portfolio, credentialing, staff credibility, TAT / testing accuracy, and
importance of customer service

Absolute Genomics is a CLIA-certified laboratory that utilizes cutting-edge OpenArray technology to perform RT-PCR based molecular testing. OpenArray multiplex PCR technology is a high-throughput method that allows us to simultaneously process multiple samples in the shortest possible time. Currently, Absolute Genomics is providing molecular testing solutions for infectious disease identification including the respiratory tract, urinary tract, sexual health, and wound panels. All panels cover a wide variety of pathogens and the panels are curated based on CDC, NIH, and available epidemiological data from proven sources.

The scientific staff at Absolute Genomics consists of several doctorate scholars, supervisors, and technologists with relevant postgraduate degrees. Our employment criteria is programmed to create a pool of scientists and technologists passionate about innovating diagnostic tests for patients and efficiently performing daily testing for our patients. Unlike other laboratories, Absolute Genomics has a robust internal mechanism of confirming rest results for each patient sample which involves multiple replicates and layered analysis involving automated software and human inputs. Since inception, Absolute Genomics focuses on rapid results without compromising the quality of testing. Utilizing software and automated processes efficiently has helped us instill this quality into our workflow.

Comprehensive infectious disease testing from respiratory to sexual health

Speed

Timely diagnosis of pathogens within 24 hours of sample receipt

Quality

Layered review process to minimize false positive and false negative reporting

Patient Care

Best quality customer service improved using patient and provider feedback

Stewardship

Antibiotic resistance stewardship based on patented technology providing the single best choice of drug

Efficient

Multiplexing on OpenArray technology allows us to run several samples at the same time

Expertise

Detection of co-infections on a single test

The Absolute Approach

Absolute Genomics utilizes real-time PCR technology which is a very sensitive technique that allows rapid amplification of a specific segment of DNA while combining amplification and detection into a single step. PCR makes billions of copies of a specific DNA fragment or gene which allows detection and ID of gene sequences.

Absolute Genomics utilizes real-time PCR technology which is a very sensitive and accurate technique for detecting pathogens and antibiotic resistance gene markers. This technique involves a single step detection method by rapidly amplifying a specific target segment of the pathogenʼs DNA/RNA. In each PCR reaction, the unique target DNA fragment is amplified into billions of copies that results in pathogen and antibiotic resistance marker gene recognition.

The PCR Difference

Faster and more accurate compared to culture method

Multiplexing reactions allow multiple samples to be run together

Ability to detect pathogens and antimicrobial resistance in a single workflow

Higher accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity compared to culture method
