Our three key technologies are designed to work together to produce accurate diagnostic results from small capillary blood samples.

Capillary blood collection typically presents multiple challenges that damage sample quality.

Our proprietary collection technology is designed to collect high-quality capillary samples less than one-tenth the volume typically collected.

In conventional diagnostic blood testing, over 95% of the sample is wasted.

Our proprietary sample handling technology is designed to preserve sample quality and reduce sample waste by 93%.

Conventional diagnostic testing requires a large volume of blood.

Our microsample laboratory is designed to increase analytical output by 35% to produce accurate diagnostic results from small samples.

New technology designed to make diagnostic blood testing…

Convenient.

The places you already visit as part of your day-to-day routine: the local pharmacy, shopping center, or grocery store.

Accessible.

Retail pharmacies are closer to where people live, work, and play. This makes routine health care more available to more people.

Accurate.

Technology designed to collect and preserve high-quality capillary samples. Laboratories built on state-of-the-art diagnostic analyzers, operated and supervised by credentialed clinical laboratory professionals. Diagnostic results that you can use for your annual physical exam.

Quick.

Test your blood, not your patience. Collection technology designed to be used by any pharmacist, pharmacy technician, or trained health care provider, which means no waiting for a dedicated phlebotomist.

Flexible.

Retail pharmacy locations are open evenings, weekends, and during your lunch breaks, so you don’t have to miss work to monitor your health.

Affordable.

A high-throughput laboratory to keep out-of-pocket costs low. All prices shown upfront, with no surprise bills. Eligible to be covered by insurance when ordered by a clinician.

Pleasant.

Collection with a quick fingerstick so you never have to see a needle. Friendly service from pharmacy staff at retailers with high customer service standards.

Respectful to the body.

Your body works hard to create blood. We aim to conserve your precious blood resource and use the small amount needed for testing as efficiently as possible.

Empowering.

Take control of your health: the option to self-order tests without a prescription (where available) and easy-to-understand results that help you track your personal health goals.
