CALGARY, Alta. — Ichor Blood Services, a private mobile lab collection service company, announced on Aug. 18 a contract services agreement with Canabo Medical Clinics to further expand the accessibility of its privately funded COVID-19 Antibody Test offerings.

Canabo will begin by adding blood services to its flagship Toronto clinic with planned expansion to other clinical locations around the country, dependent on consumer demand.

“We are excited to be working with Canabo to provide drop-in clinical locations for serology test collections,” said Mike Kuzmickas, president of Ichor in a prepared statement. “Many of our potential clients fall outside of our existing mobile collection capabilities. By working with Canabo Medical we can utilize their existing clinics to provide drop in collection facilities for our clients.”

Ichor also announced an agreement with Corrective Health, a walk-in blood clinic in Fredericton, N.B., to provide the same service to residents of Fredericton. Just as with Canabo Medical, consumers can register and pay for the test through Ichor’s website, and then stop into the clinic at 435 Brookside Drive during regular office hours to have their draw completed.
