LEXINGTON, Mass., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Instrumentation Laboratory (IL) today announced that its three-year contract covering its critical care portfolio with HealthTrust Purchasing Group, LP (HealthTrust), a leading group purchasing organization, has been extended to all Consorta, Inc. members. Consorta, another leading healthcare group purchasing organization, and HealthTrust finalized an agreement that established Consorta as the sixth equity owner of HealthTrust, effective April 18, 2007. The membership of the combined organization is comprised of over 1,300 acute care facilities, including five of the ten largest healthcare systems in the country.

The contract covers IL's portfolio of critical care analyzers, reagents, consumables and service, including IL's flagship products, the new GEM(R) Premier(TM) 4000 and the GEM Premier 3000 analyzers for blood gas, electrolyte and metabolite testing.
