HealthTrackRx, a molecular diagnostic testing laboratory, announced the opening of its latest high-throughput lab in Los Angeles. The facility will help healthcare providers treat patients faster with lab results by the next morning, according to the company.
“Our rapidly growing network of customers on the west coast compelled this exciting move into California,” says Martin Price, executive chairman and CEO of HealthTrackRx. “Being closer to customers significantly reduces the time it takes to get providers and patients the critical answers they need to treat infections.”
The company’s newest facility will complement its existing operational hubs in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Atlanta, and greater Louisville. HealthTrackRx says it understands the urgency of accurately identifying patient infections and antibiotic resistance so providers may treat them quickly and appropriately.

“We are changing health care by allowing providers to collect a patient sample today and get actionable RT-PCR results the next morning. Traditionally, providers were stuck between costly send-out results measured in days or weeks and unreliable in-office options,” says Price. “Speed and accuracy matter. We see this daily across dozens of common infections that can have serious consequences if misdiagnosed, wrongly prescribed, or untreated.”
HealthTrackRx physician-developed syndromic testing menus link patient presentation to testing panels that target the most relevant infection-causing pathogens, including respiratory, urinary, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, and wound infections, according to the company.
