Federal prosecutors announced the pleas involving the Parsippany-based Biodiagnostic Laboratory Services on Monday.

The seven defendants pleaded guilty to a complaint charging them with money laundering and conspiracy to violate the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Federal Travel Act. They were accused of paying doctors to refer blood samples and perform unnecessary tests to collect money from insurers and Medicare

Prosecutors the men admitted to making $100 million in the scheme.

Two other former employers pleaded guilty to similar charges last month.
