Mission Statement

Our mission at MicroGenDX is to improve clinical outcomes by offering clinicians and their patients the most informative and impactful microbial diagnostic tests that science can provide.

Bringing desperately needed advances in diagnostics to providers and patients

Southwest Regional PCR first offered a 2-step process combining qPCR and NGS to identify microbes in 2010 under the commercial name PathoGenius. In 2017, the laboratory was purchased by Rick Martin, head of commercialization for this testing, and rebranded as Southwest Regional PCR dba MicroGenDX. Since that new branding and leadership, the laboratory has grown in scale and reach for physicians, specialties and infection types – both nationally and internationally.

A global leader in NGS diagnostics of infection

MicroGenDX laboratory has run over 700,000 next-gen DNA sequencing tests at our state-of-the-art, CAP-accredited, CLIA-licensed molecular diagnostic facility. Our advanced instrumentation, including Illumina Miseq sequencers, provides the industry’s most informative microbial diagnostics for ENT/AFB, microbiology laboratories, orthopedics, urology, wound care, podiatry, pulmonary, ExPlants, periodontal, podiatry/nail, OB-GYN, infectious disease, and other medical specialties. Our laboratory is supported by a team of molecular biologists, biochemists, bioinformaticians, computer scientists, and physicians. MicroGenDX employs over 200 passionate employees, with a leadership model that swiftly adapts to global health concerns and new technologies. We want to help as many people as possible with microbial identification of challenging infections.
