North Central Florida Diagnostics & DNA Technologies (NCF DNA) offers a trademarked AcnePath™ test. This advanced DNA test screens for various strains of bacteria that cause severe cases of acne. We use Real-Time PCR DNA testing that yields highly accurate results in 24-48 hours of the patient sample arriving at our state-of-the-art facility. Depending on its severity, acne can cause emotional distress and scar the skin. The earlier patients begin a treatment regimen, the lower the risk of prolonged acne issues.
Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when pores are clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and normally appears on the face, neck, chest, upper back and shoulders. Acne is most common among teenagers, although it is also common in people of all ages. If you're experiencing severe acne, contact your primary care physician and tell them about our advanced DNA test.
We accept select commercial and federal insurance plans. Contact our billing department to determine if your health insurance will cover our advanced DNA tests.
