Our Testing Services

Pharmacogenomics (PGx)

Pharmacogenomics studies a person’s DNA to test how it responds to different drugs. Researchers have found that different people have different reactions to the same drug. We test genetic variants for the best response to over 100 drugs.

Wound Pathogens

We can help you heal better with our qPCR-based test which detects the pathogens in the affected area. The results help with better wound management and prevent the spread of infection.

Blood Chemistry

An annual blood test is advised as part of an annual physical check-up to assess the health of your kidneys, liver, thyroid or heart.

Urine Drug Testing

We offer Specimen Validity Testing, Screening Assays and Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry.

Respiratory Pathogens

Devansh Lab Werk’s qPCR based RPP helps identify common viruses and mixed infections which will help your physician arrive at the correct diagnosis for you.

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

A UTI is usually caused by bacteria. While women are more likely to get a UTI, men are also at risk. It is important to identify the symptoms and get yourself tested before the condition becomes worse. Symptoms include increased frequency in urination, pelvic pain, cloudy urine etc.

Devansh Labs has developed a qPCR based test with a resistance option for rapid detection, speciation, and resistance profiling of wound pathogens. Submit a swab that has been gently wiped over the infected region of skin to our lab and we will perform the DNA extraction and qPCR analysis of the listed pathogens commonly seen in wound infections with immediate reporting.

Accurate and prompt identification and determination of wound pathogens is key to proper wound management for patients suffering from pathogenic infection. The majority of skin wounds are colonized with both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and yeast.

Because efficiency and turnaround time are so important to physicians and their patients, Devansh Labs uses quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR or Real-Time PCR) which is faster than traditional PCR.
