The U.S. based laboratory HEALTH DIAGNOSTIC LABORATORY, Inc. (HDL, Inc.) has performed 500,000 tests for the determination of lipoproteins since the first devices were installed at HDL, Inc. nine months ago. The tests were run on several NMR devices and in routine operation. The technology and expertise for these special laboratory diagnostics in the field of cardiovascular disease were provided by numares HEALTH. The in vitro diagnostics manufacturer numares HEALTH supported HDL, Inc. to successfully develop a powerful and robust test system. This laid the foundation for a close development partnership with the U.S. company.
