Toxicology Department

Bluewater Dx recognizes the value in the correct specimen selection, so we customize specimen collection to fit the needs of the provider and the patient. Confirmatory testing at Bluewater Dx affords the most precise detection levels and ensures the highest sensitivity in the industry by utilizing Advanced Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) technology to report quantitative results. We offer presumptive screening for amphetamines, barbiturates, opioids, benzodiazepines, synthetic analgesics, and illicit drugs. We also can detect sample manipulation detection using an enzyme immunoassay analyzer. Bluewater Dx utilizes these EIA technologies to report qualitative results. Having the ability to rapidly detect a wide variety of drug compounds and metabolites from these methodologies enhances the medical provider’s ability to determine patient compliance with prescribed medications.

Core Diagnostic Testing

As a respected leader in the field of clinical laboratory testing, Bluewater Dx expanded our diagnostic testing to offer a comprehensive spectrum of care for physicians and their patients. As you care for your patient’s physical and mental health, we care enough to provide you with quality, accurate and rapid results so you can make informed treatment decisions.

Sexually Transmitted Infections Panel

Infectious diseases, if left undiagnosed, can lead to severe health conditions. Patients may, at times, present asymptomatic with STI’s which results into greater spread of the infection. Bluewater Dx provides advanced diagnostic testing allowing for rapid detection of STI’s from a swab or urine sample, quickly identifying patients needing immediate attention.

Urinary Tract Infections Panel

Bluewater realizes the impact of UTI/STI on patient’s physical and mental health. Our molecular UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) testing provides rapid and accurate identification of specific pathogens known to cause UTI’s. With our industry leading turnaround time, providers and patients receive the specific data they need to make timely and accurate clinical decisions.
