Our Zero Tolerance for Medical Error process follows a strict regimen which includes:


  • Near Elimination of False Positives – Positive or unspecified results are retested, at no additional cost.
  • Increased Accuracy and Specificity – Manual performance on many tests and oversight of automated testing all but eliminates error caused by equipment malfunction.
  • Ship Once, No Reference Out – Once your specimen leaves your office and arrives at the lab, we do not reference out for any of our testing, reducing possibility of loss or damage.
  • Simplified Specimen Collection – We strive to simplify your staff’s collection efforts by reducing the types and varied methods of collection found in the market today.

CMCD’s goal is to develop and provide innovative diagnostic tools to improve physician’s capabilities to care for their patients throughout all phases of the cancer spectrum. Our primary focus is on the creation of innovative screening tests that can detect cancers and cancer precursors at their earliest stages which correlates to less invasive treatments and cures, while decreasing mortality rates.


Utilizing the latest technology in Cytology and Molecular diagnostics, CMCD works with our physicians to improve patient outcomes through the earliest detection possible and delivering advanced testing during the treatment stages, virtually eliminating the guess work in Cancer treatment.



  • No need to collect additional samples for test performance on same specimen
  • Lower instance of rejected samples requiring re-collection from patient
