"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."
