San Diego (PRWEB) June 24, 2013
Millennium Laboratories, the leading research-based, clinical diagnostic company dedicated to improving the lives of people with chronic pain and addiction, announced today it was awarded a Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) government contracting vehicle effective June 1, 2013. After completing a multi-year application process and in recognition of its commitment to quality, Millennium Laboratories is now able to provide medication monitoring and detection services to federal agencies that serve the millions of veterans and active duty service members suffering from pain and addiction.
Appearing on the FSS contract enables businesses to offer their products and services to government entities. Millennium Laboratories’ test is designed to provide specific lab services focused on both pain management and addiction. Federal agencies, including Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, now have direct access to Millennium’s medication monitoring products and services to aid in the treatment of the unique polytrauma medical issues that the active duty and veteran populations face.
“Veterans often come back, after dedicating their lives to protecting our country, with devastating physical and psychological trauma. We want to be sure that the clinicians treating these heroes have the best drug monitoring technology and services available to treat them,” said Vice President, Global Defense Healthcare for Millennium Laboratories, Nancy Lazarski. “Our announcement today means that we are able to offer our expertise in drug monitoring to ease war-related trauma these individuals face.”
Millennium Laboratories utilizes LC-MS/MS technology with high sensitivity and specificity to identify more than 80 drugs and metabolites using a minimal volume (1-2mL useable urine) of specimen. This allows us to identify more than 375 brand name drugs patients may be taking. The comprehensive, quantified drug/metabolite specific results are delivered generally within one business day from receipt of specimen at the laboratory, giving healthcare professionals a clear picture of the medications and drugs their patients have used.
