NEW YORK – Laboratory Corporation of America said Friday that it is collaborating with Getlabs phlebotomy service to provide at-home blood draws and specimen collection.
According to Burlington, North Carolina-based Labcorp, the service, called Getlabs for Labcorp, is currently available in 50 US markets covering more than 50 percent of the US population, and samples can be used for Labcorp's full testing menu. Fees for the service start at $25.
"We want to make it easy for people to manage their health, and this collaboration with Getlabs significantly expands Labcorp’s home testing options to include our full range of tests," Amy Summy, executive VP and chief marketing officer at Labcorp, said in a statement.
"With over 5,000 unique diagnostic tests available to be performed in the location of your choosing, Getlabs for Labcorp is making lab tests more accessible, which is critical to improving healthcare in today’s landscape," Getlabs CEO Kyle Michelson added.
Labcorp participated in Miami, Florida-based Getlabs' $20 million Series A funding round in February.
