NuHealth’s Virology and Molecular Pathology Laboratory at Nassau University Medical Center provides cell culture and rapid diagnostic testing for the identification of infectious diseases, including HIV, hepatitis, chlamydia, human human papilloma virus (HPV), and more. As one of the few virology centers in the region, NuHealth’s Virology Laboratory provides testing services to local hospitals, private laboratories and long-term-care facilities. We actively collaborate with Nassau County agencies in cases of potential child abuse and rape, providing specialized testing for chlamydia and other STD agents.
NuHealth’s Virology and Molecular Pathology Laboratory also plays an important role in Long Island’s ability to respond to emerging viruses such as SARS, and the avian and swine flu variants. Our ongoing epidemiologic surveillance for infectious diseases is a vital link in the region’s public health and safety. We are an important part of the region’s overall bio-preparedness and planned response to bioterrorism, informing and educating health care professionals both locally and nationally about emerging dangers.
