HIGH TECH MEDICAL
Advanced Pathology Builds New Lab and Office
When your doctor or hospital takes a biopsy, you want the results instantaneously. Advanced Pathology Solutions (APS), one of the newest high-tech businesses in NSBP, has the mission of giving those results within 24 hours of receipt of the tissue. Kevin Hannah, the CEO, has a successful career history in medical marketing and device sales, providing him with extensive physician and hospital contacts; thus he recognized this need. He started this business in 2011 in Little Rock but like so many in NSBP, moved here to leased space in 2014. As the business grew, he saw the need to own a custom designed facility and hence the new construction recently completed at 4850 NorthShore Lane.
The beautiful, brick-façade building was designed by Tim Yelvington of the RPPY architectural firm and contains 10,400 square feet of office and laboratory space plus 4,075 square feet of shell space for future expansion, for a total of 14,475 SF.
As their reputation - as an incredible team of highly skilled pathologists and lab personnel able to give clients a 24-hour turnaround - spread far and wide, APS developed a customer list in all 50 states. Every day as many as 1500-2000 patient biopsies arrive via UPS or FedEx containing tissue samples with instructions of what to search for. APS does not test blood or urine samples but tissue samples come from all parts of the body.
Upon receipt of the sample, APS prepares a label identifying the doctor, patient, tissue type, and desired test, and the label then follows the sample through the entire process. Then, in a pristine laboratory environment, histotechnologists prepare the sample by encasing it in a paraffin like substance that then allows a device to shave 6-8 very thin slivers, each of which contains a small portion of the sample. These slivers are then placed on slides which are available for analysis.
From the histotechnology area, the slides then go to the team of full-time specialty pathologists, who examine the slides and prepare their analysis. The completed analysis is then ready to be returned to the customer within 24 hours of receipt.
If your doctor or hospital does not promptly give you the good or bad news on your biopsy, perhaps they didn't use the superior services of Advanced Pathology Solutions of NorthShore Business Park, North Little Rock, Arkansas.
