Our laboratory was established in 1983 as a regional reference lab designed to provide a full range of testing services to hospitals, long term care facilities and physicians’ offices in the Bangor, Maine area. Today these same services extend to healthcare providers throughout Northern New England.

To better serve our clients, the Portland lab was formed in 1988.  In 1997 a drawing station was created in Rutland, Vt., and in 1998 the lab assumed total operations and management responsibility for lab services on the Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center campus.  In 2009 the Brewer lab opened to service the new Northern Light Cancer Care in Brewer.

Our technologists use advanced instrumentation and methodologies to perform assays with accuracy, precision and efficiency. Approximately 96% of tests requested are performed onsite.

Our 24-hour Client Services Center staff answer your questions, facilitate requests, and address concerns promptly and courteously. Our comprehensive courier network ensures "same day" processing of specimens regardless of your location; and our Courier Services personnel are thoroughly trained in the handling and transport of medical specimens.

We also furnish all necessary supplies for collection: blood collection tubes, needles and holders, specimen bags, special collection tubes, and requisition forms.

All test reports include reference ranges. Normal operating procedure mandates that all STATS and critical values are immediately telephoned, as are any special requests on the original requisition.

Follow-up hardcopies are delivered to you by CareEvolve, your onsite partner for lab processing and reporting. The CareEvolve system includes a web-based program through which you can order tests, receive results, track patient and group histories, and print out results and reports. CareEvolve provides:
 
  • Instant Access to Lab Results
  • Cumulative Reporting for both In-Office & Send Out Testing
  • Statistical Summaries for Patient Population Analyses
  • Automatic Test Code & Insurance Company Searches
  • Pending Report Monitoring
  • Automated forms and specimen label completion
  • Spreadsheet & Graphic Display Formats
  • Highlighted Abnormal/Critical Value Results
  • Access to ICD-10 Databases
  • Bar Code Labels for each Patient File which matches Requisitions and Specimen Labels to ensure a positive ID Match
  • Advanced beneficiary notice (ABN) when a service is not covered by Medicare
  • EMR Connectivity Available
