GREENVILLE, SC August 18, 2020 – Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS) announces today that they have been named one of the Top Genetic Diagnostic Companies of 2020 by Healthcare Tech Outlook, a leading national healthcare publication. The designation, earned by the Greenville, SC laboratory, comes with recognition for their providing the most advanced diagnostic testing solutions with accuracy and efficiency through employing the latest in science and technology.
One of the reasons PMLS was selected by the publication is that they are a highly complex laboratory with various types of test offerings to address many medical diagnostic needs. From COVID-19 PCR tests, antibody testing, pharmacogenomics, advanced cardiovascular testing, and their women’s health & wellness and diabetes panels, all of PMLS’ tests are performed under one roof with cutting-edge laboratory equipment, providing a quick turnaround of results for physicians and patients.
“We are honored to be designated as a top genetic diagnostic company of 2020 by Healthcare Tech Outlook,” said Kevin Murdock, Founder of Premier Medical Laboratory Services. “Our team of scientists and laboratory personnel is continually focused on providing the most advanced solutions to diagnostic testing demands, and to helping physicians provide top-level care to their patients.”
Along with titling PMLS a top genetic diagnostic company, Healthcare Tech Outlook noted that Premier Medical Laboratory Services’ MDDiabeticPro panel includes the revolutionary DIABETESpredict test, which is a first of its kind predictive genetic test for type 2 diabetes developed in collaboration with world leading doctors and scientists of Harvard and MIT. The DIABETESpredict test is expected to mark a new era in diabetes prevention and care through evaluating the risk of the disease onset by examining individual genetic profiles and is currently available to the US through PMLS.
Along with their MDDiabeticPro panel, the article also recognizes PMLS’ full respiratory pathogen panel and GI panel, as well as their cardiovascular panel MDHeartPro, which more accurately depicts a patient’s overall heart health than a standard lipid panel that is often used by other laboratories. All of these testing services are conducted at PMLS’s 40,000 sqft COLA and CLIA regulated laboratory in Greenville, South Carolina alongside their recently added portfolio of COVID-19 related tests.
By employing the latest in laboratory equipment, added staff and a highly advanced laboratory information management system, OnGen, PMLS has been able to expand their testing capacity and add quality PCR and antibody testing for COVID-19 to their diagnostic testing services.
