Testing With Oral Swabs
Oral swab testing relies upon LC/MS testing to determine results, providing a competitive landscape that ensures speed, quality, and accuracy. To do this, we embrace cutting-edge breakthroughs in medical science.
At Captiva Lab, we utilize a fully automated process known as the Clinical Laboratory Automation Module, or CLAM-200, to prepare samples for screening. This method is fully integrated with LC separation and MS detection of small molecules, enhancing preparation for accurate and effective results. Further, the use of CLAM-200 practices allows for parallel processing, testing up to four samples at one time for a sample to sample analysis time that is equal to the manual LC/MS method.
By using an automated approach, we are able to virtually eliminate human error, reducing the likelihood of cross-contamination, inaccurate preparation, and any other mistakes that can come from oversight or improper lab protocols. This method, pioneered by our lab, provides high accuracy and reproducibility, ensuring results that can be duplicated for superior quality results.
Our testing methods are designed to facilitate outcomes that can benefit your medical operations. With three distinct platforms for testing, we are able to provide flexibility and diversity to best serve your objectives as a care provider. Read more about our testing method on our recent blog.
