PathGroup opens pair of labs

Brentwood-based pathology services provider PathGroup announced today that it has opened two new state-of-the-art facilities dedicated exclusively to molecular and cytology testing.

The new laboratories, the price tags for which were not disclosed in a release, are located adjacent to PathGroup’s current laboratory at 658 Grassmere Park in South Nashville. The facilities will allow specialists to perform molecular assays for oncology, including next-generation sequencing, as well as infectious disease and women’s health diagnostics. The new space also includes a clinical laboratory improvement amendments (CLIA)-validation laboratory for test development and implementation.

PathGroup will continue to operate from its existing 40,000-square-foot laboratory. With the new labs adding approximately 20,000 square feet of space, PathGroup now has more than 85,000 square feet of space of operational and corporate headquarters space.
