Lab Me Analytics— Blood Testing Made Simple
Lab Me has created a blood testing platform that allows customers to monitor their health more effectively.
On average, Americans spend four weeks and more than $500 in time and cost to take and get results from a blood test. Due to the inconvenience, many people get their blood taken once per year, offering a small snapshot into their overall well being.
What the Company Does
Lab Me is making blood testing simple by delivering a blood collection cartridge to the customer, who collects blood at the comfort of their home with no need to fast and travel to physician’s office hungry. The cartridge is then mailed via a pre-addressed and pre-paid envelope. Within 48 hours of receipt of the sample, the company uploads the results to a personalized dashboard that the customer can see on their PC or phone.
Each test sold carries a gross profit margin of 50% to 60%. The team is also plans to target health enthusiasts tracking their fitness through DTC/digital marketing efforts and patients with chronic condition through direct sales to physicians.
The team estimates the market is around $12B for fitness trackers and up to $200B in monitoring acute and chronic medical conditions. Some of their competition includes Everlywell, Let’s Get Checked, Inside Tracker, and Wellness FX. Lab Me is different due to superior accuracy, gamification/social sharing, dynamic subscriptions/playbook, and proprietary algorithms in tracking medical conditions and predicting health outcomes.
