Wound Panel

When a patient is showing signs and symptoms of an infection, waiting multiple days for a result on a diagnosis can be difficult and painful. With RML, we utilize PCR methodology, one of the most advanced forms of identifying bacteria and Antibiotic resistance markers on the market. We take pride in cutting the turn around time from 48-72+ hours, to under 24 hours for a result.
