Matrix Medical Network Announces the Integration of Biocerna

In-House Testing Capabilities and Significant Expansion Better Position Matrix to Serve Customers

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 16, 2020Matrix Medical Network® (Matrix) today announced the completion of the integration of Biocerna, a state-of-the-art CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited laboratory dedicated to delivering clinical diagnostics tests to improve patients’ safety and quality of care throughout the U.S. The addition of Biocerna’s laboratory and expertise adds dedicated capacity for accurate, rapid testing and processing for Matrix’s clients. Since receiving U.S. Food and Drug Administration Emergency Use Authorization in April 2020, Biocerna has processed 99 percent of COVID-19 tests within 24 hours of receipt at the laboratory. Biocerna is located in Fulton, Maryland less than an hour from three major airports, helping to facilitate rapid testing.

“Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we rapidly mobilized to offer B2B COVID-19 testing with rapid turn-around times at scale. Joining Matrix allows us to provide a vertically integrated solution to our clients with fast turnaround times paired with Matrix’s extensive clinical care delivery system,” said Biocerna Founder and Matrix SVP of Clinical Laboratory Operations Chris Sanders. “As a part of Matrix, we are implementing a growth strategy to increase our capacity to 15,000 COVID-19 tests per day.”

Biocerna is a CLIA/CAP laboratory that develops and commercializes non-invasive, readily accessible, easy-to-use and affordable diagnostics needed to accurately diagnose and treat health conditions. Biocerna currently processes a significant number of COVID-19 RT-PCR tests, is a leader in Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency testing, and offers various health screening tests that can be completed in-home including lipid panels, diabetes screening, and colorectal cancer screening.

“Matrix has been delivering full scale, rapid, and cost-effective testing strategies since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Matrix Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Keith Henthorne. “Adding the diagnostic and testing expertise of Biocerna to our in-house capabilities allows us to provide even more timely support to our clients with up to 15,000 tests being processed daily. Being able to quickly turn around critical test results at competitive prices is important, especially as we help our clients safely return employees to work and keep them working.”
