Challenging Ourselves to Bring a New Way of Thinking about Clinical Toxicology
SOLUTION FOCUSED TOXICOLOGY
We are accredited by the College of American Pathologists and CLIA-accredited through CAP. We are an independent clinical laboratory and we perform high complexity, clinical toxicology testing.
Our featured toxicology solutions include Benchmark OFT (oral fluid; 30+ specific analytes) and Benchmark UDT (urine; 65+ specific analytes). Benchmark tests use state of the art LC/MS/MS instrumentation and test methods to perform presumptive tests for specific drugs with a reflex of positive test results for definitive testing and quantitative value reporting. For Benchmark UDT, providers have the option to add-on definitive testing to look for alcohol and specific antipsychotic drugs.
We also perform definitive LC/MS/MS testing to confirm provider-based presumptive testing.
In June 2022, Paradigm received its national certification as a Women's Business Enterprise by the Greater Women’s Business Council (GWBC), a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“Paradigm stays on top of drugs of abuse patterns. We use laboratory data to evaluate positivity rates and other signals on a practice and patient level. We have several interesting tests in development and are closely examining the testing of CBD. The street changes the chemical make-up of many drugs of abuse. Our job is to track laboratory results data and translate it into meaningful test offerings.”
