Biolab, a well known and accredited reference lab in Guatemala, is our “send out” lab enabling us to run almost any test that is needed. If there is a test that  is not done at our lab, we send it out, and we can get the results in as soon as two working days. 

I have been asked for a screening test for Tuberculosis. Can it be done at La Loma Luz ?

Short answer, definitely YES

 

Microbiology

We know that some times it is important to know precisely what bacteria or parasite is causing the infection so as to receive the adequate treatment. For this reason our laboratory offers Bacteriology and Parasitology testings.

Culture, identification and antibiotic sensitivity determination is now offered on samples from the following sources:

  • Wounds
  • Urine
  • Stool
  • Sperm
  • Ear

Results of cultures and sensitivity testings are usually ready in two days.

Please call 824-2087 and ask to speak to a laboratory staff to inquire about the proper sample type, sample submission form, cost and sample collection requirements.
