If we had a nickle for each time someone asked us about Theranos in the beginning…
Over the past couple of years, Theranos has gone from superstar to practical outcast. Their fall from grace is one of the most well-documented journeys in life sciences startup history.
Although Theranos’ reputation has taken a beating, the mission they set off to achieve is important. There are numerous companies that share the vision of making care more decentralized and affordable. Companies like NOW Diagnostics are passionate about putting blood tests and their results as close to the patient as possible.
