Technological innovation has vastly enhanced the capabilities of the modern clinical laboratory. However, they are still challenged by the need for high volume testing, better efficiency, and faster results in the face of labor and budget constraints. Plainly put, it is crucial to deliver them all as the more rapidly the results are generated, the quicker clinicians and patients can make decisions and start an effective treatment program. LifeBrite Laboratories, a national laboratory service provider, successfully provides fast turnaround times through a unique and specialized approach to laboratory testing. “We understand that patient care is directly affected by laboratory results. For that reason, we are committed to providing the most accurate and reliable results with industry-leading turnaround times,” mentions Christian Fletcher, CEO of LifeBrite Laboratories.

Back when they started the company, LifeBrite Laboratories was focusing primarily on providing toxicology services to combat the spike in opioid addiction in the country. They played a pivotal role in helping addiction centers and healthcare providers address this alarming trend. Later, the company brought new testing capabilities, including blood-chemistry testing, molecular pathology, and respiratory pathogen testing to become the one-stop-shop for clinical testing. Now, armed with the understanding of the significance of patient-oriented care, the company also provides genetic testing services such as pharmacogenomics and inherited cancer testing, to name some, to their customers. With their pharmacogenomics testing, LifeBrite Laboratories assesses how the patients’ genotypes will influence their response to various medications, including those that treat cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, pain, and other medical conditions.

As the COVID pandemic unleashed a global crisis, LifeBrite Laboratories evaluated the accuracy of various testing protocols and introduced RT-PCR (reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction) testing to patients.

With their service, healthcare providers and employers can get their patients and employees tested for COVID-19. The technique is CDC’s gold standard for testing RNA viruses, such as influenza and other coronaviruses. By employing RT-PCR testing, the company delivers accurate results, within 24-48 hours. Even though rapid antigen and antibodytesting are faster methods of COVID-19 testing, the RT-PCR test is themost accurate and provides a higher level of certainty. LifeBrite’s lab technicians have extensive expertise in respiratory pathogen testing—Respiratory Pathogen Profiles—which analyzesspecimens for twenty-one pathogens responsible for various respiratory infections caused by respiratory viruses and bacteria, including adenoviruses, coronaviruses, rhinoviruses, influenza, and bacterial pneumonia.

LifeBrite Laboratories has been leveraging respiratory pathogen testing to detect coronaviruses even before the COVID-19 strain was discovered in humans. According to Fletcher, as Coronavirus strains continue to mutate and become apparent, respiratory pathogen testing will take center stage in the fight against the pandemic. For that reason, LifeBrite Laboratories is committed to providing patients with an accurate, actionable, and timely analysis that empowers physicians to give the very best in personalized care. While many of their competitors maintain a singular focus on a particular diagnostic technique, LifeBrite Laboratories adopts a holistic approach to testing and provides bespoke technologies and methodologies to ensure that customers are treated with the care and attention they deserve.

Moving ahead, LifeBrite Laboratories seeks to bring forth new capabilities to combat new viruses and illnesses and thus provide adequate information to physicians. “We take pride in serving our clients during these challenging times by delivering an elite service with a very fast turnaround time. Our staff ensures they do their best to deliver consistently good customer experiences when patients engage with us,” says Fletcher.
