ARUP Laboratories Partners With Pathology Service Associates

SALT LAKE CITY, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- ARUP Laboratories, a national clinical and anatomic pathology reference laboratory and a leader in innovative laboratory research and development, announced today that it has entered into a business alliance with Pathology Service Associates, LLC (PSA), a nationwide network affiliation and a principal provider of business services and support to independent pathologist practices. The agreement, effective June 17, 2008, offers special pricing to the over 400 pathologists affiliated with PSA for ARUP's esoteric molecular oncology and cytogenetics testing services. Additionally, ARUP's proprietary online diagnostic tool, ARUP Consult(R), The Physician's Guide to Laboratory Test Selection and Interpretation, will be integrated into PSA's internal Web site for affiliated practices.

"ARUP is pleased to extend our esoteric clinical and anatomic pathology services and expertise to Pathology Service Associates," said ARUP President and COO Ronald L. Weiss, MD, MBA. "This collaboration will allow ARUP to help improve patient care by supporting our fellow pathologists and the success of their local and regional anatomic and clinical services."

ARUP's Division of Anatomic Pathology is staffed by more than 30 full-time faculty, which performs high-quality diagnostic testing, from small biopsies to large resections based on a diagnostic center of excellence model encompassing a wide range of specialties. The clinical practice of anatomic pathology is supported by several core laboratories which provide a full range of services. ARUP's Anatomic Pathology Division continues to update its technologically-advanced menu by offering a multitude of molecular techniques, such as melting curve analysis, PCR, and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) techniques for detection of gene amplification involving HER-2/neu, EGFR, and other gene sequences of diagnostic and therapeutic importance.

PSA-affiliated pathology practices will also have access to ARUP Consult, a state-of-the-art online resource providing up-to-date lab testing information and concise diagnostic advice regarding test selection and interpretation for more than 1,500 laboratory tests. Disease-specific topics with background information, test ordering suggestions, and diagnostic algorithms are co-authored and maintained by ARUP's expert panel of medical faculty and consultants and include recommendations that are congruent with and link to national guidelines and relevant references.

"PSA is pleased to offer our affiliated pathology practices special pricing on services which will assist them in maintaining a competitive advantage in their markets," said PSA President Al Sirmon. "PSA chose to partner with ARUP because of their philosophy to support their clients' existing test menus by offering highly complex and unique lab tests rather than competing for referring physician office business."
