Molecular Technology Platform

Coastal Laboratories offers the most advanced molecular-based microbial testing available, which we deliver through a proprietary technology platform that performs detection, determination, analysis, and therapeutic guidance for providers and physicians.


This best-in-class platform includes:

  • Real-time PCR detection

  • Infectious disease knowledge base

  • Integrated decision-support software

  • Pathogen analysis reporting engine

  • Actionable therapeutic guidance 


We enable providers and physicians to evolve care in order to more effectively treat their patients and improve outcomes. This is accomplished through rapid and accurate molecular analysis of pathogenic DNA and RNA. The only lab specifically dedicated to our senior population, we help long-term care providers develop a therapeutic plan for each patient, offering valuable insights and guidance as they develop their treatment plans. 

How do providers benefit?

Our molecular diagnostic platform dramatically reduces the chance for errors in specimen collection, handling, stability, and time to analyze. According to the guidelines set out by the American Society for Microbiology, microbiological interpretation depends entirely on the quality of the specimen submitted for analysis. Specimen management directly affects patient care and patient outcomes, influences therapeutic decisions, impacts infection control, impacts patient length of stay, hospital and laboratory costs, and influences laboratory efficiency.


How it works

Coastal Laboratories uses advanced Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) technologies to identify the microbes by extracting the microbial genetic material within each sample.
