HOUSTON – DECEMBER 5, 2018
Microdrop, an at-home health testing provider, has announced the availability of their advanced at-home health testing service, imaware™.
imaware™ is a pioneering at-home health testing platform that focuses on patient empowerment by providing accurate and actionable at-home disease screening. As of today, the imaware™ at-home test for celiac disease is available for purchase, with more tests planned for the coming months.
“The imaware™ mission is to empower patients with the ability to accurately screen for diseases from the comfort of their own home. Removing existing barriers to testing increases the likelihood of early detection and diagnosis dramatically, and earlier medical diagnosis allows for health and lifestyle adjustments that can significantly improve quality of life,” said Jani Tuomi, Co-founder.
imaware™ is a platform that allows patients to order an at-home testing kit online, and mail back their sample for lab processing. The tests are processed by a CLIA certified laboratory and results are available to patients within 5 days. The accurate online results empower patients to take control of their health and share these results with their doctor.
“Our first test available is for celiac disease, as it is one of the most underdiagnosed diseases in the world, with 3 million Americans currently affected by celiac disease and over 60% of those affected remaining undiagnosed. It currently takes the average patient over 4 years from recognizing initial symptoms to be diagnosed, which makes it difficult and costly to make the necessary lifestyle changes to reduce potential damage,” added Nicholas Olteanu, Co-founder.
imaware™ designs and validates each of their at-home tests alongside leading medical and scientific advisors. “imaware is a simple and precise at-home screening test for celiac disease that should significantly reduce the number of undiagnosed patients over time.” said Dr. Gaundalini, Professor Emeritus at the University of Chicago and founder of their Celiac Disease Center.
