FORT MYERS, Fla., July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NeoGenomics, Inc.

Path Logic is a leading provider of specialized anatomic pathology services to Hospitals and physicians in Northern California. Path Logic provides high-quality Anatomic Pathology services with significant expertise in the sub-specialties of renal pathology, dermatopathology, women's health and gastrointestinal and genitourinary pathology.

For 2013, Path Logic reported revenue of approximately $10 million and employed approximately 65 people. The acquisition purchase price was $6.0 million.

Douglas M. VanOort, NeoGenomics Chairman and CEO, commented, "Path Logic has earned a reputation as one of the highest quality Anatomic Pathology Laboratories in California. The staff of outstanding specialized Pathologists, with capabilities in Dermatopathology, Nephropathology, Women's Health and GI/GU Pathology will further build and diversify NeoGenomics' specialized testing as a 'one-stop shop' for highly specialized AP testing services. With this expanded capability, both our clinical trial clients and our hospital and pathology-based clients will have access to an expanded product line and consulting expertise."
