What We Do


HIV Testing Facility

The Center for Disease Detection (CDD) is a reference laboratory with a wide-variety of testing capabilities and specialized expertise in cancer diagnostics and detection of communicable diseases, such as HIV, chlamydia/gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis, herpes, and human papillomavirus (HPV).

We serve many roles for a variety of clients. While our core business is centered around implementation of automated, high-volume, integrated diagnostic solutions for community and public health authorities, our private sector clients are equally impressed by our streamlined service delivery. We accurately process and report on over 5 million specimens annually, received from 50 US states, and 16 countries.
