SPRINGDALE, Ark., Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NOWDiagnostics Inc., based in Springdale, Ark., announced today the addition of three new members to its leadership team: Ann G. Bordelon as Chief Financial Officer/Chief Administrative Officer, Jeff Ellis as the Director of Sales and Marketing and Adam Glasier as Director of Finance.
NOWDiagnostics manufactures and sells a line of unique rapid tests that allow health care providers to conduct simple-to-use, highly accurate tests for a variety of ailments and diseases. Currently, the company manufactures the ADEXUSDx™ hCG test for distribution in the United States and five additional tests in Europe. Unlike others, NOWDiagnostics' tests allow for a one-step process that provides results in 5 to 15 minutes using only a single drop of whole or capillary blood with no laboratory needed. The small drop of blood is obtained from a finger stick. Furthermore, the tests are reviewed by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and have proven sensitivity, specificity, accuracy and precision comparable to conventional diagnostic laboratory tests.
All three individuals joining the NOWDiagnostics team bring a deep bench of experience in their respective fields, said NOWDx Chief Executive Officer Kevin Clark.
"With our rapid growth and new product offerings coming to the market, we were ready to expand our leadership team to help us continue our path to changing the diagnostic industry," Clark said. "Ann, Jeff and Adam all bring a wealth of knowledge and skills that will ensure we grow efficiently and effectively, continuing to serve physicians and hospitals with the latest technology in diagnostic testing."

She also previously worked for Tyson Foods in a variety of finance and accounting positions.
