Reference

Sterling’s clinical expertise and advanced technology make us a first-rate reference partner for labs who wish to supplement their in-house test menu. We offer lab testing services to fulfill any toxicology need, including:

  • Comprehensive test catalog
  • Screening and confirmation testing on positive screens and inconsistent results
  • Easy integration of LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System)
  • Specialty drug identification including synthetic designer drugs

Our reference work enables clinical and hospital-based labs to expand their capabilities, serve as a single-source test provider for their clients, satisfy unconventional requests and respond to volume ebbs and flows without incurring additional expenses in instrumentation, materials and staff. 

We take pride in our breadth of testing and ability to provide the right data for the right test at the right time. We welcome the opportunity to help other laboratories meet their clients’ needs.
