StatLab Medical Products has signed a new GPO contract with Gastrologix, the only GI-specific Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) in the U.S. This exclusive agreement provides eligible Gastrologix members access to StatLab’s 3500+ product catalog for anatomic pathology laboratory products at enhanced savings, including the Quantum HDx® fully automated dual-process IHC/ISH stainer.
The Quantum HDx is at the core of the StatLab IHC portfolio and is the highest capacity platform available, with reduced waste output and reagent consumption to minimize overall costs.
“Our GPO members will benefit from access to StatLab, whose technical team has decades of experience helping physician practices operate pathology labs and navigate any challenges they face,” said Stephen Somers, principal at Gastrologix, “StatLab’s hands-on approach and commitment to customer service fits well with our members’ goal of providing high-quality and cost-efficient patient care.”
The StatLab product portfolio supports the entire workflow of the GI anatomic pathology laboratory, with many products manufactured in-house under ISO 13485 manufacturing practices to ensure the highest quality possible. StatLab’s recent acquisition of American MasterTech ensures Gastrologix members also have access to state-of-the-art GI-specific special stains.
“We are very excited about this new partnership with Gastrologix,” said StatLab CEO Dan Eckert. “This agreement extends our ability to deliver on our promise to provide laboratories easy access to high-quality anatomic pathology products. We look forward to working with Gastrologix members to meet their AP supply needs, backed with technical support and high touch service for a complete solution so they can stay focused on patient care.”
Gastrologix is the only Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) in the U.S. working strictly on behalf of independent gastroenterologists. Gastrologix works with independent GI practices to lower costs, operate more efficiently and expand services, so that GI physicians can remain independent and continue to provide a valuable alternative to the more expensive care provided in hospitals.
