Infectious diseases are diseases that are spread by organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, or parasites. These diseases may present signs and symptoms but may also at times be asymptomatic or may even mimic the signs and symptoms of other diseases. As a result, all individuals are encouraged to follow established testing guidelines for infectious diseases. Additionally, individuals with a legitimate concern of a possible infection should also get tested.
Since infectious diseases can be spread from person to person or even from a pregnant mother to her child, getting tested is critical in confirming the status of an individual and to prevent the possible spread of the disease. Testing and diagnosis is also important in identifying a disease so that decisions can be made as to the best course of medical treatment. Many infectious diseases can be cured or managed with proper medication.
Through My Lab ReQuest, Sonora Quest Laboratories allows patients to order their own lab tests for some of the most common infectious diseases. Take charge of your health and order the testing you need to make more educated decisions regarding the management of your health. Schedule your appointment, access your test results, and pay for your screening all online. Test results are completely confidential* and can be accessed privately using our secure results portal.

Hepatitis C Screen
Hepatitis C is a liver disease that is caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Once infected, many people will develop a chronic infection that can eventually lead to liver cancer or liver failure. Each year, there are over 10,000 cases of hepatitis C reported in Arizona. Given the consequences of liver disease, the CDC recommends that at-risk individuals, which includes all baby boomers, be tested for hepatitis C.

Sexually transmitted diseases are diseases that are commonly spread by sexual contact. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV, and syphilis are some of the most common STDs. Many times, a person may be unaware that he or she has been infected with one of these STDs. Therefore, it's important for individuals that are at-risk to follow established testing guidelines and to get tested as needed.

STD Screen for Chlamydia/Gonorrheae
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are the two most common STDs in Arizona. These diseases can result in serious health consequences, especially for pregnant women or women that wish to conceive. Many times, these diseases will not present any symptoms and may go undiagnosed. As a result, the CDC recommends that individuals follow established guidelines for testing.

STD Screen for Herpes
Herpes is a common sexually transmitted disease. In fact, it's estimated by the CDC that one out of every six people between the ages of 14 to 49 has genital herpes. Herpes testing is recommended in order to confirm whether or not a person is experiencing an outbreak. Once diagnosed, medication can be used to manage herpes symptoms and to prevent the spread of the disease to others.

STD Screen for HIV
HIV is a virus that can lead to AIDS once a person's immune system has been compromised by the virus. HIV is a common STD, and having other STDs can actually increase your risk of acquiring HIV. As a result, individuals in at-risk groups are encouraged to follow published testing guidelines for HIV. After being diagnosed, drug treatments can allow for HIV-positive individuals to slow the progression of the virus.

STD Screen for Syphilis
Syphilis is a common sexually transmitted disease that causes sores on or near the mouth or genital area. Though rates of syphilis are lower than those of other STDs, rates are rising in Arizona. Syphilis can be treated with medication, but can lead to serious health consequences if not diagnosed and treated early. For this reason, the CDC recommends that pregnant women and others considered to be at high risk be tested.

STD Screen with Trichomonas Vaginalis
In addition to testing for the STDs (chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV, and syphilis) included within our standard STD panel, our new STD Screen with Trichomonas Vaginalis also includes testing for trichomoniasis, one of the most common STDs. Order a more comprehensive test and confirm your health status for the most commonly diagnosed STDs.

Trichomonas Vaginalis Screen
Trichomoniasis, commonly referred to as trich, is a common STD that can be easily cured with medical treatment. However, most people infected with trichomoniasis will not have any signs or symptoms of the disease. Trichomoniasis is much more common in women than in men, and the CDC recommends that women that have HIV or are in high-risk settings be tested.

Tuberculosis (TB) Test (T-SPOT®.TB)
Tuberculosis, though not a common infectious disease, can have potentially serious health consequences. Symptoms may be present depending on whether a person has latent TB or TB disease. Certain groups are at a higher risk for the disease based on their exposure to others in the environments in which they live and work. Once properly diagnosed, treatment plans can be prescribed by a medical professional.

Valley Fever Screen
Valley Fever, an infection caused by the inhalation of a fungus found in the southwestern United States, affects thousands of people across each year. Because of the still relatively low awareness of the disease, as well as its similarity in symptoms to the flu and pneumonia, many cases go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Though treatment is not always needed, it may be necessary in certain cases.
