Heritage Labs Announces A1c Test Certification Milestone
Date:11/11/2008

First laboratory to be certified for A1c testing using dried blood spot specimens

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Heritage Labs International LLC, a division of Hooper Holmes (Amex: HH), today announced certification of their hemoglobin A1c testing methods by the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP).

Heritage Labs uses two blood testing methods for hemoglobin A1c, one for testing whole blood specimens and the other for testing dried blood spots (DBS), both of which have been certified by NGSP. Heritage Labs is the first, and only, laboratory worldwide specifically listed to be certified for A1c testing using dried blood spot specimens. There are currently 78 laboratories worldwide currently certified by the NGSP, and only 20 of those labs are in the United States of America.

Heritage Labs uses the DBS testing method in its Appraise(R) Home A1c Kit, which provides consumers with an inexpensive and easy-to-use blood test that produces highly accurate and reliable test results equivalent to whole blood tests collected in physicians' offices. This DBS test is designed to be safely and easily completed in the privacy of one's home and mailed to the lab. Results are delivered online or in the mail within a few days.

The Appraise(R) Home A1c Kit is available now at many retail locations including Wal-Mart, where it is marketed as the Reli-On A1C Test. The test is also available under Heritage Labs' Appraise brand in other retail locations nationwide, including Rite Aid and other independent pharmacies.

"This certification not only recognizes the high standards which we uphold at Heritage Labs, it recognizes our position as a leader in this field," said Mark Patterson, President of
