The UCLA Clinical Microbiology Laboratory offers comprehensive testing for detection, isolation, characterization and susceptibility testing of infectious agents. We utilize rapid direction detection methods where possible for optimal patient care, including immunologic and nucleic acid based assays. The serology section also performs testing for selected autoimmune disorders. The laboratory has long been a leader among academic centers. We serve as a reference center for a number of proficiency testing surveys, and maintain one of the longest running ABMM accredited Clinical Microbiology Postdoctoral Training Programs in the country.
