(OTC: ADAT), a provider of genetic hereditary cancer, molecular microbiology, pharmacogenomics, toxicology testing services, and secure, web-based software applications and telehealth products for healthcare organizations, today announced the addition of BDx AdvantageTM Blood Diagnostic testing to their growing portfolio of services.

Aeon's comprehensive BDx AdvantageTM menu includes:
- Metabolic, hepatic and renal function testing
- Advanced lipid profiles
- General chemistry and extensive hormone testing
Some of the benefits of Aeon's BDx Advantage™ include the extensive testing options and the use of the most advanced technology and high throughput instrumentation available. Furthermore, Aeon has the ability to handle thousands of samples per day, while maintaining a quick turnaround time of 24 hours.
