New Jersey Urology unveiled this week its newly renovated pathology laboratory – a state-of-the-art facility that offers world-class pathology services by integrating diagnostic excellence and unparalleled service.
Located in Bloomfield, the nearly 8,000 square-foot lab offers state-of-the-art instruments, specialized and efficient processes for high throughput testing, and high quality results.
NJU is one of the largest urology practices in the United States. The practice provides complete urologic care and comprehensive individualized treatment at more than 60 convenient locations, including six state-of-the-art Cancer Treatment Centers.
With this expansion, NJU Diagnostics now offers several anatomic and clinical pathology testing modalities and receives approximately 1,000 new specimens a day, performing over 27,000 tests monthly, totaling approximately 330,000 annually.
Dr. Martin Goldstein, President of New Jersey Urology, said the lab will serve in the fight against cancer.
“As our understanding of cancer becomes more clear, it is apparent that successful treatment must be personalized,” he said. “The opening of this lab will help us individualize our cancer treatment based on one’s own genetic makeup and assist us in providing better prognostic information to our patients and their families.”
