Choose the Right Partner
Laboratory testing is essential to managing applicant risk. Our laboratory has been serving the life insurance industry since 1972 and now, as part of Quest Diagnostics, we are a leader in risk-assessment testing, drug testing and clinical testing for physicians and hospitals.
Our scientific staff is one of the most experienced and comprehensive diagnostics teams in the world. We recently reached a milestone of 100 issued patents and 125 pending patents in the U.S., including some exclusively licensed patents.
The risk-assessment laboratory research and development (R&D) team focuses solely on studying the mortality implications of specific medical impairments. We have also partnered with MIB solutions to utilize our extensive combined data sources to provide unique analytics to the life insurance industry. Studies on particular risk classes or product types with larger data sets are expected to provide valuable insights that were previously unavailable.
Additionally, our risk assessment R&D team is available for independent studies with your underwriting team. These studies can help you analyze your laboratory profiles and performance of specific tests. For further information, please contact your Regional Sales Vice President.
