Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI)

We offer molecular testing of pathogens associated with sexually transmitted infections. STIs can cause many uncomfortable symptoms, spread quickly to others, and can lead to chronic conditions such as infertility. In many cases, a STI will begin with no symptoms at all, and many infections are becoming antibiotic resistant as well. Correct identification is essential for quick and effective treatment before infections can spread or cause serious health damage.

Innovative Gx Laboratories’ STI testing is performed using a simple urine sample and can detect numerous viruses including:



  • Human papillomavirus 16
  • Human papillomavirus 18
  • Human papillomavirus 45
  • Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1)
  • Herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2)


  • Chlamydia trachomatis
  • Haemophilus ducreyi
  • Mycoplasma genitalium
  • Mycoplasma hominis
  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae
  • Treponema pallidum
  • Trichomonas vaginalis

Antibiotic Resistance

  • Class A Beta-lactams Resistance
  • Class B Beta-lactams Resistance
  • Class C Beta-lactams Resistance
  • Class D Beta-lactams Resistance
  • Extended Spectrum Beta-lactams Resistance
  • Fluoroquinolone Resistance
  • Macrolides Resistance
  • Tetracycline Resistance
  • Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole Resistance

Results are reported to your medical professional within 24 hours of specimen receipt by our laboratory. Antibiotic resistance screening for 34 antibiotic resistant genes is included with every test not only to determine the pathogens present, but also to identify any antibiotics that may not be effective in treatment plans. Innovative Gx Laboratories’ molecular testing for STIs delivers rapid, extremely accurate, and comprehensive results, taking the guesswork out of any STI treatment plan and helping the patient feel better faster.
