The CLIA-certified clinical laboratory has specialized in developing and executing synovial fluid testing for patients with joint pain and/or inflammation, since 2013.

Focused on Orthopedic Laboratory Diagnostics

At CD Laboratories, synovial fluid testing is our expertise. Our highly trained laboratory professionals ensure that every specimen received is treated with care to ensure accurate and reliable results are provided to customers and patients. Once received, our team focuses on processing and preparing each specimen to start the process of providing timely results. At CD Laboratories, every specimen receives a specimen integrity analysis to confirm the quality of the synovial fluid, e.g. that it has not been diluted by saline, contrast agent or blood. If specimen is not optimal quality, we inform providers as part of an easy-to-read results report.

Our team is here to help aid in the diagnosis of patient pain and inflammation and, ultimately, help patients return to normal activity and improved quality of life as soon as possible.
