Molecular Diagnostic (aka Proteopath Clinical Laboratory)

Proteopath Clinical Laboratory is a CLIA certified clinical laboratory now offering Vitamin D as well as TDM (Therapeutic Drug Monitoring) assays.  A product of the University of Texas Health Science Center, Proteopath adheres to the mission and vision of UTHSC by using GLP and CLIA certification to insure that your patient as well as your research receives the highest quality processes a laboratory can provide.  Whether you care for patients or you are involved in pre-clinical or clinical trials, increasing FDA guidance for labeling in vitro diagnostic devices requiring clinical validation or clinical trials has created a need for more CLIA certified laboratories.

Proteopath has anticipated the need for a CLIA certified laboratory with experience in clinical as well as research testing required to support clinical, diagnostic and R & D projects.
