BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Aug. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Heritage Labs, a division of Hooper Holmes (Amex: HH), today introduced the Appraise(R) Home A1c Kit, a new at-home consumer product that measures the average blood glucose level of diabetics and potential diabetics. The Appraise(R) Home A1c Kit provides consumers with an inexpensive and easy-to-use blood test that produces highly accurate and reliable test results equivalent to whole blood tests collected in physicians' offices. It is designed to be safely and easily completed in the privacy of one's home and mailed to the lab. Results are delivered online or in the mail within a few days.

The test is available now at many retail locations including Wal-Mart, where it is marketed as the Reli-On A1C Test. The test is also available under Heritage Labs' Appraise brand in other retail locations nationwide, including Rite Aid.

"The home testing market has significantly expanded in recent years as more consumers seek to control their health care costs," said Roy H. Bubbs, President and CEO of Hooper Holmes. "This is a natural area of opportunity for us, as we operate one of the most efficient, high quality labs in the country that is also an FDA-approved manufacturer of collection kits. We believe that Wal-Mart's decision to stock our product in their stores nationwide validates the Kit as an accurate and affordable way to reduce the health risks associated with diabetes. In the weeks ahead, we will be expanding distribution to additional retail channels."

The Appraise Home A1c Kit is an alternative to time-consuming doctor visits or expensive lab blood draws. Tests are processed at Heritage Labs' Kansas City headquarters. Results are available over a secure web site in
