This Web site has been created by the Charles T. Campbell Ophthalmic Microbiology Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA. This branch of the Campbell Laboratory is a clinical microbiology laboratory dedicated solely to the diagnosis of infectious diseases of the eye. Our dedicated laboratory, which opened in 1973, is fully certified by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the College of American Pathologists, and the federal government (CLIA).
At the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, we serve:
- the clinical practices
- inpatient care
- emergency departments
- surgical units
In addition, we provide microbiology services to the tri-state (Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio) ophthalmic community practices and to our ophthalmic alumni. The clinical laboratory does not depend on research sources for operation and all testing is billable for insurance reimbursement.
