Q. Will test results provided by standard culture correlate with MedArbor’s PCR lab results?

A.   Comprehensive PCR molecular technology is more sensitive than culture and can reliably detect multiple and slower growing organisms in the specimen – things culture simply can’t provide.  Therefore it is not uncommon for culture results to differ from PCR’s more comprehensive and accurate results.
