Labcorp (NYSE:LH) announced today that it will collaborate with Getlabs to launch a convenient, at-home diagnostic service.
Getlabs for Labcorp combines the company’s diagnostics with Getlabs’ phlebotomy service to test consumers in the comfort of their own homes, allowing individuals to schedule an at-home blood draw or specimen collection when convenient for them.
According to a news release, appointments are available through Labcorp’s website, while Getlabs provides at-home appointments performed by its full-time phlebotomists at a convenience fee starting at $25.
The offering is available in 50 U.S. markets, covering more than 50% of the U.S. population, Burlington, North Carolina-based Labcorp said. The company added that it complements its nearly 2,000 patient service centers (PSCs).
“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,” Labcorp EVP and Chief Marketing Officer Amy Summy said in the release. “The blend of easy scheduling online, our full set of tests, and in-person testing makes it simple for individuals who want the convenience of at-home collection but are uncomfortable drawing their own blood or require diagnostic tests beyond those offered through Labcorp’s at-home kits.”
