What sets us apart


Danner Laboratory was founded on the principles of providing the best in accuracy, quality and service and we continue to adhere to those values today. Our founder, Douglas E. Danner, CT(ASCP) has a passion for accuracy. He understands that there is a patient waiting for important health information and that is why we use the most advanced technology and closely examine every cytology patient sample using precise criteria for interpretation. Understanding how our work impacts patients continues to drive us to deliver excellence from our low unsatisfactory rate to our quick, accessible, personalized customer service.


Accuracy – We were an early adopter of ‘Diagnostic Cytology’ allowing more accurate correlations between cytology and biopsy results.  We were the first to use digital imaging for cytology in the western U.S. and one of the first to use molecular technology. Danner Laboratory maintains its commitment to accuracy by continually researching, evaluating and adopting latest technology as well as implementing our own Lab-Developed Tests to ensure the highest level of patient care.


Quality – We strive for the highest level of quality in all that we do. The measures we take to ensure that we always deliver on our quality promise include employing highly-skilled cytotechnologists, pathologists and laboratory scientists. Our reputation for quality and attention to detail makes us a sought out strategic partner.


Service – We work diligently to earn your trust and respect and to become your partner in delivering quality patient care. While we utilize the most advanced testing technology we have kept our service friendly and personal at every step of the process. We get to know you and your needs and make sure there is always a live person to answer your call. Our commitment to service excellence starts with your first interaction and continues every step along the way including our billing services, which have earned Danner an A+ rating from the Better Business Bereau for five consecutive years.
