NEW YORK – Getlabs, a provider of at-home sample collection services for lab-based testing, said on Thursday it has raised $20 million in new Series A financing.
Emerson Collective and the Minderoo Foundation led the funding round. Tusk Venture Partners, Laboratory Corporation of America, Healthworx, Byers Capital, 23andMe cofounder and CEO Anne Wojcicki, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, Capsule founder and CEO Eric Kinariwala, and Alto Pharmacy founder Mattieu Gamache-Asselin also participated in the round.
For a $25 fee, Miami-based Getlabs will send a phlebotomist to individuals' homes or offices to collect their sample and deliver them to labs such as Labcorp and Quest Diagnostics for testing.
With the new funding, Getlabs has expanded its executive team. Louisa Cartwright joined the firm in December as VP of employee success. She was formerly at health and wellness company Headspace. Matt Rubens joined the firm as VP of engineering. He had been at online shopping site Tophatter. Craig Thompson is now chief revenue officer at Getlabs after a stint as VP of sales at Alto Pharmacy. He had been at Abbott before that. Jaime LaFontaine is VP of business development after moving from Alto Pharmacy.
Additionally, Matt Bettonville from Emerson Collective and Demetri Karagas from Thirty Madison are joining Getlabs' board of directors.
The firm also said it has launched a one-tap API to facilitate the at-home collection of patient samples.
