Ireland’s first home testing kit for sexually transmitted infections will become available in 100 pharmacies throughout the country, after Irish company LetsGetChecked struck deals with a number of pharmacy chains.

The LetsGetChecked business model provides consumers with direct access to laboratories without the need to take time off work or visit a doctor.

It also has a dedicated online platform that links customers and laboratories for home screening of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
