Diatherix is a national, CAP-accredited, molecular diagnostic laboratory compliant with all regulations required by insurance carriers. If the insurance carrier deems there is a patient responsibility, the patient will be billed the amount reflected by the insurance carrier on the patient’s Explanation of Benefits (EOB). Diatherix will bill patients who are self-pay.
Diatherix has a menu of panels available for your provider to order based on your physical examination, your symptoms, and the providers clinical assessment. Many infectious disease organisms ( i.e. viruses, bacteria, parasites) may have similar symptoms that are difficult to differentiate without a diagnostic test. Diatherix proprietary technology TEM-PCR provides accurate and timely information to the physician.
Only your physician can explain why he/she ordered a Diatherix Panel. These panels are designed to be used in accordance to the type of illness or symptoms you may be experiencing. TEM-PCR has the unique ability to simultaneously identify bacteria, virus, and parasites in a single, easy specimen collection process. Your physician receives results in one day, so that he/she may provide rapid and appropriate treatment to you.
Many of the respiratory panels provided help the physician identify H1N1 over bacteria or other viruses that may be vitally important to patient outcomes in certain patient types.
In 2009, Diatherix was granted an Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA for its rapid and accurate diagnostic ability to detect the H1N1-09 virus as well as other viral and bacterial pathogens.
