SOFIA – November 9, 2022 – Bulgarian based start-up Lab-Away.com wishes to announce the commemoration of its first-year anniversary. The healthcare e-commerce company is set to celebrate its first-year birthday on the 11th of November, 2022.
Lab-Away is a EU-certified provider of medical home test kits for STDs / STIs, illegal substances abuse, and fertility / reproduction issues. The Lab-Away home tests combine laboratory-grade of accuracy with a level of privacy and anonymity possible only when testing at home.
According to a survey, carried out by NCBI, there’s a sharp rise in the percentage of STD / STI infected patients who shy away from prevention testing due to confidentiality concerns and stigmatisation from neighbours and local community. Lab-Away addresses these issues by making it possible for patients to test at the safety and privacy of their own homes.
Founder and CEO, Ivan Stanchev, has a brief insight on how the idea behind Lab-Away came to life. He shares, “I noticed the immense power of testing during the COVID-19 Pandemic and how it evolved from being conducted only in professional healthcare facilities to being able to casually buy Covid-19 tests and take them at home. And this is when we finally got control of the Pandemic. At this point, I knew there must be other medical issues that can be addressed by giving people access to accurate testing at the privacy of their own homes.”
Lab-Away is already making a positive impact in a country where there is still a stigma among local people for going to doctors and healthcare facilities to test for STIs and different forms of drug abuse.
The team behind the start-up deeply believes that access to affordable and reliable home testing will greatly help the general public to correctly assess their health status and seek professional help as early as possible
