ARUP Laboratories Launches New Pain Management Web Site

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ARUP Laboratories, a leading national clinical and anatomic pathology reference laboratory and a leader in innovative laboratory research and development, today announced the launch of its newly designed pain management website.

“ARUP is committed to providing exceptional care for pain management patients,” said Edward Ashwood, MD, president and CEO of ARUP Laboratories. “The goal of the new website is to improve patient care by enhancing our clients’ awareness of ARUP’s capabilities regarding drug testing.”

With a modern look and user-friendly layout, the new site offers visitors easy access to ARUP’s comprehensive pain management test menu and experts. It also features many regularly updated resources and references related to pain management drug testing.

“Drug-testing strategies and test methods have not been well standardized. Therefore, some pain management physicians may not have a good understanding of how to select an appropriate drug test nor how to interpret drug testing results,” said Gwen McMillin, PhD, medical director of Toxicology and Trace Elements Laboratories and co-medical director of Pharmacogenomics at ARUP Laboratories. “In addition to providing our clients with tools to select the most appropriate drug test, the new site also features enhanced reports that focus on interpretation of drug test results.”
