Results In Time To Make A Difference

We know that accelerated, clinically meaningful results are critical to transplant patient outcomes. This is why we’re committed to bringing you fast, accurate results that can help you counter infections and minimize graft failure:

  • Same day results (within 8-12 hours of specimen receipt) for fungal, therapeutic anti-fungal drug monitoring assays and quantitative PCR tests for critical pathogens such as CMV, BKV, HHV-6, among others

  • Results in two to three days for CMV antiviral resistance

We are so honored to be a part of Viracor-Eurofins 30th anniversary celebration. Gift of Life began educating students about the power of organ, eye and tissue donation 20 years ago, with our mission eventually growing to include providing support and encouragement to transplant patients, their families and living donors. Viracor has been right there with us…not only through the life-saving work they do every day as a company, but also through their employees’ sharing of personal time and resources in support of our work in the transplant community. We are so proud to have Viracor as our partner as we offer hope to families embarking on their transplant journey, provide a place for families facing loss to honor a loved one, and inspire students to make a choice that may one day save a life.
