Cedar Diagnostics and its predecessors have been serving Southwest Colorado and the broader Four Corners region for over 12 years, providing anatomic pathology and clinical laboratory services to hospitals and office-based physicians.  Our singular mission has been to bring high quality, comprehensive laboratory services with a commitment to customer service and a boutique approach.

Consistent with this mission, in May 2018 we partnered with like-minded UniPath, based in Denver, Colorado, to broaden our capabilities and extend our resources.  UniPath has been serving the Front Range of Colorado for over 30 years providing anatomic pathology and molecular testing services to office-based physicians and hospitals, including some of the top medical centers in the State. UniPath is part of American Pathology Partners (AP2), which is based in Nashville, Tennessee and also operates laboratories in Texas, Florida, and North Carolina, in addition to Colorado. For more information on AP2, UniPath or Cedar visit us at ap2.com.

In April 2019, Cedar formally combined with UniPath. Since then, we added a powerful new laboratory information system and also gained access to UniPath’s deep menu of testing services, including its high complexity molecular laboratory that performs over 500,000 nucleic acid tests per year for the detection and diagnosis of viral, bacterial and fungal infections.

This affiliation with UniPath allowed us to quickly join the fight against COVID-19.  UniPath has developed and deployed swab-based SARS-CoV-2 testing in its scalable, high-automation PCR laboratory.  In addition, Cedar and UniPath also offer serologic IgG antibody testing locally in both Durango and Denver. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test determines if an individual is currently infected by the novel coronavirus, while the antibody test allows patients to discover if they were previously infected with the virus and now have antibodies against it. For information on our overall COVID-19 efforts please see ap2.com/covid-19.

If you are in the Southwest Colorado region and believe you have been exposed or infected by the novel coronavirus and want to be tested please see below.
