State-of-the-Art Equipment

Paradigm Laboratories is a full-service laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment to address a variety of testing including infectious disease testing, serology testing, and upper respiratory testing. Paradigm expanded these operations to include COVID-19 testing in April 2020 to provide testing modalities specific to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The entire testing process utilizes a scientifically-sound approach that follows CDC and Arizona state guidelines. 

Paradigm offers rapid antigen testing and RT-qPCR molecular testing for COVID-19. Innovative testing, processing, and reporting standards place Paradigm at the forefront for reverse-transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction testing for SARS-CoV-2 and provides testing across multiple counties in Arizona with fixed-location and mobile site options for maximum outreach to companies and communities. 

The laboratories at Paradigm operate state of the art equipment throughout the testing process to ensure quality testing services and accurate results. While some technologies at Paradigm are proprietary, some laboratory equipment involved in the COVID-19 testing process at Paradigm Laboratories include the Roche LightCycler 480 System, ThermoFisher QuantStudiop & KingFisher Flex, and Hamilton Microlab STAR Liquid Handling System. 

Paradigm strives to provide COVID-19 testing results within 24-48 hours in partnership with local Arizona counties and with the benefit of locally operated laboratory spaces. Paradigm also utilizes a comprehensive laboratory information management system (LIMS) designed for molecular diagnostics. The Paradigm LIMS platform provides data management and high-level security for all laboratory processes. Paradigm also adheres to strict HIPPA training and protocols in providing patients access to their test results through LabFinder, a secure patient portal.
