ACM Global Laboratories offers state-of-the-art microbiology and molecular diagnostic testing services for local, regional and global clients. We remain at the forefront of technological advances in this field. Ours is a full service clinical microbiology laboratory offering bacteriology, virology, parasitology, mycology, serology and infectious disease molecular diagnostics. We can help you best optimize the yield of microbiological analysis at every stage—from pre-analytical sample collection and handling to lab analysis and post-analytical reporting and test result interpretation.
Our laboratory is staffed by talented and capable New York State-licensed medical technologists and medical technicians under the direction of an American Board of Medical Microbiology (ABMM)-certified laboratory director. While we continue to perform classical culture-based methods, we also pride ourselves in offering the latest sample-to-answer multiplex PCR technology that marries exquisite test sensitivity and specificity with significant reductions in turnaround time.
