Our Method

Cutting Edge Technology for Better and Faster Results

The entire menu of tests performed at Excelsior are done via the newest molecular PCR technologies in order to guarantee the most accurate analysis available today along with next day results.

What is PCR?
How We Do It

Simplified Specimen Collection and Processing

All tests and panels are processed via advanced robotics and require extremely small specimen sizes and quantities. This allows for multiple lab tests to be carried out from the same specimen and add-ons tests can be ordered without the need for additional samples.

The Economics of ABR

Excelsior’s ABR panel has become a game changer that allows physicians to receive precise intervention data the day after specimens are collected. Pathogens can be identified with the unparalleled precision available with PCR technology and thanks to ABR treatment can begin the same day without waiting for legacy culture tests. Correct antibiotic treatment can dramatically shorten the duration of the disease, improves patient outcomes for SNFs and LTCs, and can all but eliminate unnecessary readmissions and their severe financial penalties.
