UF Health Pathology Laboratories Nontuberculosis Mycobacteria Laboratory

UF Health Pathology Laboratories has established a non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections, or NTM, diagnostic laboratory in the Emerging Pathogens Institute on the main UF Health campus in Gainesville. Florida is recognized as one of the “hotspots” for cases of NTM. Working closely with the State Bureau of Public Health Laboratories, our lab is in an ideal situation to perform state of the art diagnostic testing for mycobacteria and become a leader in NTM patient care.
