MALVERN, Pa. and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Endo Health Solutions (Nasdaq: ENDP) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, HealthTronics, Inc. has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its anatomical pathology business, HealthTronics Laboratory Solutions, Inc., ("HLS") to Metamark Genetics, Inc.

"HLS is a recognized national reference lab providing specialized pathology services to the urology community with a reputation for quality," said Shawn M. Marcell, president and CEO of Metamark Genetics. "We believe joining forces with HLS will be instrumental to our success as we commercialize ProMark™, Metamark's novel prostate cancer test."
