- The FDA grants a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) Waiver to privately-held Theranos for its diagnostic test system. The waiver allows the testing to be performed in non-traditional locations such as Theranos Wellness Centers, currently 42 in Arizona, one in Palo Alto, CA and one in Harrisburg, PA.
- The automated system the company has developed utilizes microfluidics to perform a wide array of tests on small volume blood samples, including those from a finger stick. Some observers believe Theranos will upend the clinical diagnostics industry with its modest costs. The company's herpes test, for example, will sell for only $9.07 compared to ~$175 from leading reference labs.
- Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes is one the newest celebrity entrepreneurs. Based on the company's current valuation, she is the youngest self-made female billionaire in U.S. history.
