Welcome to ARUP Infectious Disease
The Infectious Disease laboratories at ARUP offer testing for a wide range of infectious agents that significantly impact patient care and provide expertise in antimicrobial resistance; rapid organism identification by mass spectrometry; molecular methods for identification, quantification, and genotyping; and classic culture and stain techniques.
Currently, the Infectious Disease laboratories are focused on the development of multiplex molecular methods for detecting gastrointestinal parasitic and bacterial infections, as well as meningitis and encephalitis panels. Additional areas of expansion include resistance markers and diagnostic assays for emerging infectious diseases.
The division is supported by eight R&D scientists who are focused on new test development. The Infectious Disease laboratories have more than 250 highly qualified laboratory personnel, many whom have more than 20 years of experience on the bench and are active in improving diagnostic techniques and training medical technologists, residents, and fellows.
Medical directors, board certified in their areas of expertise, are available to answer questions regarding test results and consult with clients on difficult to diagnose cases.
The Infectious Disease processing team provides information on comprehensive testing capabilities and specimen-collection options, and offers guidance on available testing alternatives for difficult to collect and irreplaceable specimens.
