Covington, Ky.-based Gravity Diagnostics announced another expansion of its diagnostic product offerings with the addition of blood testing. Gravity currently serves over 1,000 customers nationwide, some of which include private practices, urgent cares, rehab and addiction clinics, and pain management.
In July 2016, Gravity specialized primarily in toxicology testing, but quickly added pharmacogenomics, sexually transmitted infection testing, and upper respiratory testing, and then over the last year responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. As Gravity continues to scale and build for the future, company officials say the addition of blood testing is an important milestone to be able to provide a full-service solution for clients in all 50 states.
COVID-19 antibody testing was Gravity’s first foray into blood, which was quickly launched during the height of the pandemic to round out the comprehensiveness of the company’s COVID-19 program, which already included gold standard PCR COVID-19 testing, antibody testing collection services, same-day turnaround time, and implementation of a courier fleet. Gravity quickly built upon that platform and now also offers a new menu of blood tests to monitor and screen for a variety of conditions including cardiovascular diseases, hepatic, and renal function, clotting disorders, endocrine disorders, and infectious diseases, including HIV. The company says additional offerings will also be added this year, including but not limited to, bloodspot, tuberculosis, hormone, and UTI testing.
“At Gravity, our foundation is built upon anticipating the needs and pain points of those we serve,” says Julie Brazil, co-founder, and COO of Gravity Diagnostics. “Our team is comprised of a unique blend of individuals with expertise in patient-facing clinical care, laboratory execution, research and development, operations, sales, IT, and customer service excellence that has been instrumental in our success entering a market that was once considered a ‘me too’ service. The addition of blood testing is just another example of Gravity responding to the demand we see, feel, and hear within the healthcare setting as it stands today.”
