Radiance Diagnostics is a division of Radiance Biosciences & Consultancy, LLC, a biomarker discovery company with innovative assay capabilities working to improve the IVF outcome by aiding competent embryo selection noninvasively. We have spent more than a decade of developing and testing immunological and molecular assays. As scientists, our life’s work is to support the medical community. We serve the greater Chicago-area from our location in Naperville, Illinois.
COVID-19 PCR Based Testing
Radiance Diagnostics offers health care professionals in the Greater Chicago area fast, accurate results for PCR testing using FDA-authorized ARIES technology from Luminex Corp. for Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) the strain of coronavirus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), a respiratory illness.
COVID-19 ANTIBODY TESTING
Our COVID19 antibody testing is done using a qualitative COVID-19 IgG and IgM antibody test kit using Lateral flow technology.
We perform diagnostic testing in the areas of infectious disease utilizing commercial assays authorized by the FDA for clinical use. We offer the following tests:
- ARIES® Flu A/B & RSV Assay (IVD)
- ARIES® SARS-CoV-2 Assay (EUA-IVD)
- ARIES® Group A Strep (IVD)
Immunology / Serology:
We perform diagnostic testing for the detection of infectious agents and assessment of the immune system. Serologic diagnosis of infectious disease includes testing to detect antibodies against various antigens derived from SARS-CoV-2. We offer the following tests:
- COVID19 IgG Antibody
- COVID19 IgM Antibody
How easy is it to submit samples?
Very easy. Complete a submission form and then we pick up the sample. Our location is in Naperville, Illinois, just west of Chicago. Every patient requisition is assigned a laboratory number.
What kind of laboratory technology do you use?
We use FDA-approved ARIES technology from Luminex Corp. for PCR testing and carefully screened FDA EUA cleared assays for COVID-19 antibodies. Luminex is an innovator in the field of molecular and microbiology diagnostics. It is light-years ahead of other testing systems currently on the market, providing excellent sensitivity and specificity of a sample.
Is Radiance Diagnostics cost-effective?
Yes. We employ an experienced staff, the best technology and an efficient process that helps us to maintain high standards at a reasonable cost.
Why Radiance Diagnostics?
We are career scientists
We are scientist-led, which means we overlay a research approach to our work. Our role is to be an extension of your health care team. Our team draws from 20+ years’ experience in the disciplines of biochemistry, molecular biology, microbiology, and lab medicine.
We use the most advanced equipment for fast, accurate results
