Theranos will make available its full menu of tests in Central Pennsylvania "from full fertility panels ($35) to simple cholesterol tests ($2.99). In addition to its pricing, Theranos delivers unparalleled transparency around the quality of its testing. As it develops new testing services, the company has committed to submit all of its laboratory-developed tests to FDA for review and approval, and is the only lab to publish and update test proficiency data and customer satisfaction metrics on its website. Theranos has already performed millions of tests since its launch and continues to provide full service labs and testing throughout Arizona and Palo Alto, California. Capital BlueCross reviewed the accuracy and quality of Theranos' systems, technology, science, processes and overall performance over several years.
