Michael McLean, formerly of Signet Diagnostics, has joined Cell Science Systems Corp. (CSS), manufacturer of the ALCAT Test, as Laboratory Supervisor.  Mr. McLean comes to CSS with over 24 years of supervisory experience in the food sensitivity and laboratory industry.  In his new role, Mr. McLean will focus on Research & Development and laboratory supervision.  

“I’m happy to be at a company on the cutting edge of testing for immune aberrations associated with dietary factors,” said McLean.
