About BioPATH Clinical Diagnostics. Inc.


Established in 2004, BioPATH Clinical Diagnostics specializes in molecular diagnostic exams leveraging advanced and best-in-class technologies for disease detection. We are one of the country's pioneering molecular testing institutions previously offering diagnostic tests for virology, oncology, sexual health, and other infectious diseases.

Answering the call to heal as one, we are joining the Philippines' fight against COVID-19, and we are committed to building world-class laboratories in strategic parts of the country, expanding the options for accurate diagnosis and real-time patient care locally.

Diagnostic testing for COVID-19 is critical. No one disputes this. But what is in dispute is whom to test and when to test, how to test, and what to do while waiting for results and how accurate those results are when you finally get them. The quick release of results meaningfully guides clinical decisions and immediately isolates infected individuals from spreading the virus. Delayed test results waste resources and cost human lives.

BioPATH COVID-19 real-time PCR tests are performed on 2 platforms:

  • For traditional testing, our laboratory is equipped with fully automated Perkin Elmer Pre-NAT extraction and Thermo Fisher Quant Studio-5 real-time machines capable of doing no less than 1,000 tests per day. Results are released within 24-48 hours of receiving a patient’s sample swab.
  • For random access and near-patient care testing with rapid turnaround time results, we use the GeneXpert. Results are available within 6 hours of receiving a sample. Due to the limited supply of Xpert cartridges, we provide the GeneXpert test on a priority basis and only for patients who need it most, per doctor’s request.

To ensure traditional tests are reliably performed, released on time, and able to meet the expectations of patients, partners, and stakeholders, our policy is to only perform tests that have been booked in advance. We need to strictly follow our schedules to ensure test results are released within 24-48 hours. No pre-booking, no testing. We also discourage “chance” requests for testing. Therefore, we need to establish an agreement with clients (healthcare providers, privately-held companies, LGUs, employment recruiters, and the like) who wish to obtain appropriate and priority services from our COVID-19 Real-Time PCR laboratories.

Unlike many laboratories that began to offer RT-PCR testing services only this year as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, BioPATH has been conducting real-time PCR testing for nearly 15 years in collaboration with AFFRIMS in Cebu. For suspected COVID-19 cases, we are capable of doing reflex testing (respiratory panel, which includes influenza). We also offer tests for other infectious diseases (HIV-I and HCV Viral Load Monitoring, HPV, CT/NG, C. difficile, MRSA, Norovirus, influenza/RSV, MTB/RIF, GBS), as well oncology/hematologic malignancy (BCR-ABL, FII/FV).
