Mullhaven Medical Laboratory
Unit 9 Stephenson Court
Priory Business Park
We are an independent private pathology facility
situated along ideal lakeside settings at the Priory Business Park,
An alternative to the busy NHS, we offer a fast
track service for all blood, urine and stool specimen investigations.
Particularly, we offer Group B Streptococcus
(GBS) testing during pregnancy. GBS is the commonest cause of life-threatening
infections in newborn babies in the UK. Most GBS infections can be prevented
with intravenous antibiotics, given at the onset of labour. This reduces
the likelihood of early-onset GBS infection developing in a baby born
to a woman carrying GBS at the time of delivery from around 1 in 300
to less than 1 in 6000.
Testing for GBS at Mullhaven Medical Laboratory
utilises the gold standard Enriched Culture Medium (ECM) specifically
designed for the isolation of GBS in swabs. This method is not routinely
provided by the NHS. Our webpage at www.mullhaven.co.uk/gbs.htm
