Port Matilda, Pennsylvania, May 10, 2012 - QBC Diagnostics is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by the Urgent Care Association of America for five years of support. At the recent 2012 Urgent Care Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, QBC Diagnostics was one of ten organizations recognized. This also marked the first year QBC exhibited as a member of the Urgent Care Alliance, a group purchasing organization aimed at helping urgent care facilities nationwide acquire the instruments they need at a discounted price.

"The Urgent Care Association of America convention is a key and important event for the Urgent Care community. We are honored to have been recognized and look forward to many more years of continued participation at this convention." said QBC Diagnostics General Manager and Vice President, Craig Stout.

QBC Diagnostics offers the world's only true dry hematology systems, the STAR and the Autoread Plus, which have been embraced by urgent care centers for their ease of use and proven results. With the timesaving advantages of the STAR and Autoread Plus, urgent care physicians have more time to spend where it matters most: with their patients.
