    Premier receives prestigious CAP accreditation see more

    Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS), an advanced medical diagnostic laboratory offering over 2,000 clinical tests, is announcing today their receipt of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Accreditation. As one of the most stringent of laboratory certifications, CAP Accreditation verifies that the laboratory meets all required standards from CLIA, the FDA, and OSHA. With this certification, PMLS is regarded as one of the world’s top-ranked labs for medical diagnostics which exceeds the industry’s clinical laboratory standards.

    “Quality medical diagnostics are integral for successful patient outcomes,” stated Kevin Murdock, CEO of PMLS. “With that in mind, we are meticulous in our pursuit to deliver accuracy and consistency. That’s why we underwent the CAP Accreditation process - to ensure that we’re an industry leader for the doctors and patients that rely on our testing capabilities. We’re proud of our team that performs at such an extraordinary level and to have achieved this highly regarded certification.”

    In order to receive CAP Accreditation, a laboratory is required to first attain Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certification. CLIA is regulated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to set the standards for which a clinical diagnostics lab must operate in the US. Once this certification is attained, a laboratory like PMLS can apply for CAP Accreditation and undergo a rigorous inspection of their laboratory operations to further confirm that precision, accuracy, safety, and best practices are in place. This sets CAP Accredited laboratories apart from most that are in operation today. 

    Along with this achievement, PMLS has reached one of the highest testing capacities in the US, processing up to 100,000 tests per day. They are a trusted testing partner of state health departments, Health and Human Services surge sites, large corporations, professional sports teams, universities, and health systems throughout the country. With an in-house research and development team of PhD scientists, they are continually expanding their diagnostic services. Now, as a CAP Accredited laboratory, doctors and patients can be further assured that PMLS provides the industry’s highest standards for accurate, cutting edge, and reliable diagnostics to improve patient lives.

    Company marks announcement of Life Sciences Week in SC with major expansion of its businesses see more

     In another sign of the rapidly expanding life sciences industry in South Carolina, Diversified Medical Healthcare (DMH) today announced plans to expand operations in Greenville County, S.C. The company’s $51 million investment will create 185 new jobs.

    Founded in 2011, DMH is a holding entity with multiple brands underneath its umbrella, all dedicated to providing healthcare solutions or improved patient care on a national basis. DMH’s companies are Premier Medical Laboratory Services, CPT Medical, Vessel Medical and OnGen which between them provide expertise in the arenas of clinical reference laboratories, medical supply and equipment distribution, sterile medical manufacturing, and medical software. The companies combined serve customers in all 50 U.S. states and several foreign countries.

    The announcement was made during a special program at SCBIO 2022:  The Life Sciences Conference of South Carolina, taking place in Charleston, SC. The conference was attended by more than 500 live and virtual attendees from across the country and multiple countries, indicative of the thriving industry which has expanded rapidly across the Palmetto State. Governor Henry McMaster has proclaimed Feb. 21-25 as Life Sciences Week in the state, in honor of its rapid growth and opportunity to benefit all South Carolinians.

    “Our mission is to positively impact patient lives with solutions that drive the healthcare industry forward. All of our companies under DMH work together to address many needs within the healthcare industry,” said Diversified Medical Healthcare CEO Kevin Murdock. “We are extremely proud to expand in our home state of South Carolina to carry out that mission on a larger scale and are appreciative of everyone who helped to make this possible.”  

    The corporate headquarters of DMH is located at 6000 Pelham Road in Greenville. The announced expansion by the DMH companies will result in a portion of company operations expanding into a new 136,000 sq. ft. facility in Garlington North at 315 Tanner Price Way, Greenville, SC. The expansive facility overlooks a key interstate connector in I-85, ideal for the organization’s expanding business nationally as well as statewide.

    The expansion also will support the company’s launch of its MyHealthPro product line, which produces retail-based genetic testing kits for at-home use. The tests, which will be sold directly to consumers, identify potential genetic markers for susceptibility and identification of medical issues. Additionally, it will enable their in-house research and development team of scientists to further conduct vital research for the growth of their lab developed test offerings which serve the most up-to-date needs of the population. Through this growth, all Diversified Medical Healthcare companies will continue to fill supply chain gaps and create solutions to make healthcare more efficient and effective for improved patient outcomes.

    I am thrilled that Diversified Medical Healthcare continues to grow and succeed in South Carolina. Today’s expansion announcement once again demonstrates that South Carolina is a place where medical companies want to do business. Congratulations to DMH, and we look forward to many more years of our business partnership,” noted South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster.

    Over the last two years of the pandemic, Diversified Medical’s companies developed groundbreaking solutions for COVID-19 and provided a testing capacity of over 100,000 tests per day with 98% result delivery in under 24 hours. Its laboratory became the trusted testing partner for state health departments and Health and Human services surge sites throughout the country. Its custom surgical procedure tray company expanded production to add in-house manufacturing of millions of COVID-19 testing kits. The company also supported development and distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE) and worked around the clock to achieve unmatched innovation in science and technology for the fight against COVID-19.

    “South Carolina’s life sciences sector is booming, and this latest expansion by Diversified Medical Healthcare in Greenville County is further testament to this critical sector’s growth. Congratulations to DMH on their success right here in South Carolina,” added Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.

    “We are always pleased when a homegrown organization like Diversified Medical Healthcare chooses to expand and deepen its commitment to Greenville County,” stated Greenville County Council Chairman and Greenville Area Development Corporation Board Member Willis Meadows. “The company’s expertise in medical software, sterile manufacturing, medical supply and equipment distribution, and clinical lab operations – along with its passion for being good community leaders -- fits well here, and we wish them continued success into the future.”

    The expansion is now underway and is expected to be completed by 2025. Individuals interested in joining the DMH team should email HR@DivMedInc.com.

    The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. The council also awarded a $200,000 Set-Aside grant to Greenville County to assist with site preparation and building construction for the additional facility at Garlington North.

    Assay designed for RapidRona at home tests see more

    Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS), one of the largest private medical diagnostics laboratories in the US has provided results for millions of COVID-19 tests since the beginning of the pandemic, contributing largely to the national COVID-19 response. They have also implemented one of the largest variant surveillance initiatives in the country with the capability to sequence up to 42,000 specimens per day. Now, they have been granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the Food and Drug Administration to process results for at-home COVID-19 tests.

    The RT-PCR-based SARS-CoV-2 assay now authorized by the FDA is designed for RapidRona at home tests which can be ordered online at www.rapidrona.com. RapidRona enables those who would like to test for COVID-19 to collect their own sample at home by a minimally invasive nares swab and then send the specimen with prepaid shipping to the lab for processing of results. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests have been known throughout the pandemic as the gold standard of testing methods due to the highly accurate results that they provide.  

    “Our scientists have worked diligently to take the steps necessary in receiving the EUA for this test,” said Kevin Murdock, Founder and CEO of Premier Medical Laboratory Services. “We did this because we know how important it is to enable the population to more easily access reliable COVID-19 tests with fast turnaround times from home. We’re proud that this is another way we can provide effective solutions for COVID-19 management.”

    At-home COVID-19 tests have been reported as difficult to find during the Omicron surge. The EUA attained by PMLS will allow more people the ability to test and mitigate the spread of the virus. Because some countries around the world only accept incoming travelers who have taken a RT-PCR test with a negative result, RapidRona is the choice for at-home testing among travelers. Returning schools and businesses can also reduce viral transmission rates utilizing RapidRona’s sample collection method designed for improved comfortability, keeping infected employees, students, and staff to a minimum. 

    PMLS is part of a house of brands under Diversified Medical Healthcare which manufacture testing supplies, develops medical data management software, and provides PPE to seamlessly meet the needs of organizations without delay or disruption.

    During the pandemic, PMLS has:

    • Processed millions of COVID-19 tests with a turnaround time of 24 hours or less
    • Served as the choice processing lab for Health and Human Services testing sites
    • Been the trusted COVID-19 management partner for professional sports teams, schools, colleges, large corporations, and health departments spanning from coast to coast

    Premier Medical, Clemson detect latest variant in Upstate region see more

    December 20, 2021 – Today, Premier Medical Laboratory Services (PMLS), headquartered in Greenville, SC, reports their findings that the Omicron variant is now confirmed to be present in the Upstate. The laboratory has been surveilling for Omicron and other novel variants through Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in partnership with the Clemson University Bioengineering Department. Clemson University REDDI Lab has collected samples for COVID-19 testing from throughout the upstate community and was funded through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to then have the COVID-19 positive specimens undergo NGS at PMLS. NGS is the process of decoding the genetic make-up of the virus to track how it is mutating and spreading throughout the population.

    “As a proactive and solutions-driven company, we implemented Next Generation Sequencing to meet the needs of our population with preparedness for novel variants like Omicron,” said Kevin Murdock, CEO and Founder of Premier Medical Laboratory Services. “Through partnerships like ours with Clemson University, we are happy to increase the amount of data for South Carolina and the entire nation which is vital for vaccine efficacy and our understanding of the virus.”

    Knowing the importance of accumulating data in the continued fight against the pandemic, PMLS implemented one of the largest sequencing initiatives among any lab in the nation – with the capability to sequence up to 42,000 samples per week. Many labs that are conducting COVID-19 testing have not developed the capabilities to conduct sequencing, and new variants cannot be fully identified via COVID-19 diagnostic testing methods alone. PMLS will continue working to uncover any further novel variants and mutations that COVID-19 presents and notify health officials.

    Other ways PMLS has helped to meet demands during the pandemic:

    • Processing lab for Human Health Services surge sites and several state health departments 
    • Blue Cross Blue Shield preferred COVID-19 testing lab in several states
    • Reached one of the highest testing capacities in the nation with the capability to process over 300,000 tests per day
    • Developed medical data management software that communicates directly from laboratory equipment for faster HIPAA compliant delivery of data to healthcare providers and patients
    • Shifted production to add in-house manufacturing of COVID-19 testing kits
    • Donated thousands of COVID-19 tests to children's diabetes summer camps throughout the nation
    • Donated hundreds of thousands of masks to local law enforcement, paramedics, fire departments, hospitals, and the Shriners organization and has provided free testing to first responders during the pandemic

    PMLS donates rapid antigen tests to Diabetes Education camps see more

    Premier Medical Laboratory Services donates rapid antigen tests to Diabetes Education and Camping Association Camps

    Many children with diabetes look forward to summer camp each year to, not only spend time with friends, but with other children who can relate to similar day-to-day obstacles that living with diabetes can present. The Diabetes Education and Camping Association (DECA) unites the global diabetes camping community, providing leadership, education, and resources to make camps for those with diabetes more impactful. As most summer camps across the US resumed this year, diabetes camps were faced with the extraordinary obstacle of protecting children who are at higher risk for COVID-19 complications due to diabetes. To bring summer camps for children living with diabetes back this year and to help protect these children, one of the nation’s largest laboratories, Premier Medical Laboratory Services, donated thousands of COVID-19 tests to DECA camps in 19 states across the nation, enabling them to safely return to camp this year.

    “We know DECA and each of their camps do so much for the diabetes community - helping kids to learn how to manage the disease as well as support emotional wellbeing,” said Kevin Murdock, Founder and CEO of PMLS. “With diabetes being a global pandemic, it’s a large focus for Premier Medical Laboratory Services to provide top healthcare solutions for patients with diabetes. We are honored to help camps that improve the lives of children and adolescents with diabetes.”

    For some children, a diabetes camp is their first opportunity to meet a friend who also has diabetes, or their first time staying somewhere without their parents. It’s a great place for them to adopt a new hobby or learn skills that give them more self-confidence. Along with the feeling of independence and support, diabetes camps have been shown to provide children with an increase in diabetes self-care abilities and decreased diabetes-specific distress. (1) For caregivers, diabetes camps provide a medically sound environment where they can feel assured that their children are safe and their diabetes care needs are met.

    Terry Ackley, Executive Director of DECA added: “The safety of children with diabetes is the highest priority of diabetes camps. Covid-19 has presented significant challenges to the operation of diabetes camps this year. It has required that they carefully study their program delivery model and incorporate additional health and safety protocols following the newest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control. A tool that is very important to safely serving children with diabetes at camp is Covid-19 testing. Premier Medical Laboratory Services approached the diabetes camping community to offer their much-needed support. Our community greatly appreciates their generous donation of a large quantity of rapid antigen tests to diabetes camps across the United States. Premier Medical Laboratory Services has been instrumental to the ability of diabetes camps to operate this year. Their support is helping children learn more about how to manage their diabetes, build resilience to living with this difficult health condition, develop cherished friendships and have lots of fun!”

    Aside from offering COVID-19 testing and many other medical diagnostics solutions, PMLS is continually searching for innovative diabetes prevention and maintenance applications. With some of the most advanced testing panels for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, PMLS also introduced to the US a first of its kind predictive genetic test for type 2 diabetes, which allows patients to know their risk of future onset of the disease determined by their individual genetic make-up. Along with this, Premier Medical Laboratory Services is currently working with the   Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on initiatives to bring soccer clinics to diabetes communities as part of their mission to improve patient lives both medically and through community outreach. PMLS is soon to announce more breakthrough solutions for diabetes care.

    Test results are delivered straight to the customer in 48 hours or less see more

    Courtesy GSA Business Report

    Diversified Medical Healthcare, a conglomerate of four Greenville health care companies specializing in advanced molecular diagnostics, medical supplies and laboratory equipment, recently acquired the COVID-19 home testing company, RapidRona.

    RapidRona test results are delivered straight to the customer in 48 hours or less, according to a news release. 

    “We know that COVID-19, unfortunately, is something our population will continue to face,” Kevin Murdock, CEO and founder of Diversified Medical Healthcare, said in the news release. “As recent reports show that the new variants spread faster, cause more severe symptoms, and are causing a decrease in vaccine efficacy, the acquisition of RapidRona is our logical next step in providing necessary solutions for the future of COVID-19. We’re proud to add at-home diagnostic and wellness testing to all that we offer at Diversified Medical Healthcare.”

    According to a recent Yale Medicine article cited by the release, the Delta variant is spreading 50% faster than the Alpha variant, which was 50% more contagious than the original strain of COVID-19. 

    According to data cited by the press release, “1,271 of 1,528 total new infections were fully vaccinated individuals as were 23 of 27 hospitalizations and 11 out of 17 cases of severe illness.” 

    Pivoting from a trend of at-home COVID-19 antigen tests, RapidRona kits provide RT-PCR tests.

    “We are excited to see the technology platform in good hands advancing the consumer’s ability to proactively direct their health care from home,” Former RapidRona CEO Heather Mlodinow said in the release.

    Diversified Medical Healthcare has reached one of the highest testing capacities in the nation with the capability to process more than 300,000 tests per day, according to the release. They’ve also shifted production to add in-house manufacturing of COVID-19 testing kits and reagents to combat infrastructure limitations and make testing more accessible.
