Helping you deliver the highest quality patient care.

Joining the fight to reduce unnecessary hospitalization and saving lives by providing diagnostic care for patients to be treated quicker and more efficiently.

Helix Specialty Diagnostics is proud to bring cutting edge technology to focus on the top hospital admissions of our elderly population living in long-term care facilities and assisted livings.  It is our mission to serve those who cannot serve themselves and those who have served us well.

Accurate Results in Record Time

Leave outdated diagnostic techniques behind.  HELIX provides results 12 hours after receiving a specimen. 

From the time your specimen is scheduled for pick-up to the documentation of the specimen being received in the laboratory in Columbia, Missouri your specimen is monitored through a nationwide shipping process.  This allows us to track your specimens from the time they leave your facility until we provide results. We build your trust through our safe and secure logistics program.

Simply obtain the specimen and it will be shipped overnight to our lab. We provide results within 12 hours of receipt via our secure online portal or automated fax service.  Molecular lab tests provide results faster than traditional methods, accurately identifying pathogens and antibiotic sensitivity. Your staff can begin treatment faster.

Helping You Provide Quality Care

Urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, and wound infections account for over 50% of hospitalizations of care center patients. Together, we can facilitate effective treatment and prevent hospitalizations (and just as important – rehospitalizations) and promote Antibiotic Stewardship – a national health initiative.

When patients and caregivers wait longer for test results,  treatment is delayed and conditions can deteriorate.  No matter who you serve,  HELIX expedites the diagnosis and treatment process you need by delivering high quality results in record time.

With 145 years combined lab experience, our leadership team combines their passion for technology with their dedication to quality care.

Not only does our staff stay up to date on the latest and most accurate testing methods, our sales representatives are there when you or your staff need support.  You can trust us through every part of the process; whether you’re ordering testing materials, training staff or receiving secure test results. Helix Specialty’s goal is to provide an educational platform for our clients and grow with you as technology for detecting and treating infectious disease advances.
