Oral Nasopharyngeal Pathology Testing Services

From common oral health conditions to diagnosing respiratory illnesses, oral pathology provides the insight physicians need to deliver effective treatments. Serving pathologists, healthcare providers and organizations in New York, New Jersey and across the United States, TOPLAB® offers several oral nasopharyngeal pathology testing services with trusted accuracy and high-speed results. With highly trained technicians and the latest equipment, we deliver the precision required to provide exceptional care.

What Is Oral Pathology?

Oral nasopharyngeal pathology takes a closer look at a variety of samples to diagnose conditions affecting the mouth and maxillofacial structures, including the teeth, facial bones, gums, tongue, salivary glands, and more. Additionally, these analyses can help identify a gamut of mild to serious respiratory diseases that leave traces in the nose, throat, and mouth. The oral pathology services at TOPLAB® help physicians identify:

  • Oral cancer
  • Bone diseases
  • Fungal infections
  • Salivary conditions
  • Herpes simplex virus
  • Influenza
  • Adenovirus
  • Pertussis
  • Pneumonia
  • Coronavirus

In addition to cancer cell detection and diagnosis of disease, our surgical pathology testing helps physicians note changes in genetic material that are suggestive of cancer, learn more about challenging tissue samples, determine the success of a surgical procedure or treatment, and more.

Oral Pathology Testing Options

Oral nasopharyngeal testing typically requires a tissue sample or a sample attained by swabbing the mucous membranes inside the nose, mouth, or throat. Samples may be mailed to our facilities, and pickup services are available for local clients in New Jersey. Our testing capabilities include:

  • Oral, gingival, and tooth: Tissue samples from the mouth are analyzed to identify the presence of disease.
  • Tonsils and adenoids: When these organs fail to fight disease, oral pathology testing can help determine the cause.
  • Vocal cord and nasopharyngeal biopsies: A collection tool is used to remove a small tissue sample for analysis.
  • Respiratory pathogen panel PCR: The back of the nose and throat are swabbed to confirm the presence of viruses or bacteria.
  • Flu and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) testing: A sample is collected via suction, a nasal wash, or swabbing.

After receiving your order, our technicians use a three-level examination process for all tissue samples:

  1. Biopsy tissue is first examined closely under the naked eye for any visible abnormalities.
  2. Technicians then process and analyze the tissue sample under a microscope. Our cutting-edge equipment allows us to examine samples with precision.
  3. Finally, we perform histopathology. Recently discovered techniques allow us to analyze RNA and DNA, identifying very early genetic changes and minute differences.

Samples from noninvasive testing, such as swabbing, are processed with a similar method and attention to detail.

Once results are complete, clients may access them via our secure portal. Physical copies of test results may also be requested via mail.
