ORLANDO, FL. (February 22, 2022) – MicroGenDX continues to lead the DNA diagnostics industry as it adds New York state’s approved lab permit for NGS diagnostics and qPCR microbial identification for 15 antimicrobial resistance genes. This will now allow residents of New York state to utilize the latest DNA-based infection diagnosis and treatment technologies offered by MicroGenDX, and help resolve chronic infections that have resisted treatment and perpetuated patient suffering.
