Founded in 2001, the UW Molecular Microbiology laboratory provides real-time PCR and DNA sequence-based testing for hospitals and clinics from all over the world.

Our approaches provide highly accurate, rapid and sensitive capture of genomic information which, when integrated with the traditional discipline of clinical microbiology, enables robust diagnoses and provides accurate descriptions of new and emerging microbial pathogens.
