Furthermore, our laboratory information system allows for automatic transmission of results to our clients.

Women’s Health
CDD’s clients include family planning and reproductive health organizations. CDD personnel are able to provide a myriad of testing options for cytology, anatomic pathology, and infectious agents screening for women’s health purposes. CDD utilizes BD SurePath™, HOLOGIC® ThinPrep, and IncellDx OncoTect methods as well as Roche cobas® HPV testing for cervical cytology screening. Our pathologists are experienced in interpretation of biopsies of the uterine cervix (including loop electrosurgical excision and conization procedures), vulva, vagina, endometrium, as well as endocervical samplings, products of conception, and breast smears.

Toxicology
CDD offers comprehensive toxicology services, with drug panel options to screen for a wide variety of both illegal and frequently abused prescription drugs. Screens are performed using a sophisticated chemistry analyzer utilizing the Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) method. This method allows for accurate screening with reduced cross-reacting substances.
