Will Ferrell’s Sexy Hot Tan, Sunstroke and Forbidden Fruit SPF 30 sunscreens are available on Amazon.com, eBay and at www.cancerforcollege.org, starting at $11.99.

Atherotech to roll out new cholesterol test

BY Michael Johnsen

ATLANTA Atherotech and specialty retailer Any Lab Test Now last week announced the roll out of Atherotech’s VAP Cholesterol Test direct to consumers.

“We are excited to bring the VAP Test directly to consumers at such an attractive price point because it empowers them to manage their own health, gain more insight in their cardiovascular health and provide their health care provider with more information to accurately treat and manage their health,” stated Joe Neely, CEO Any Lab Test Now.

The VAP Cholesterol Test is an expanded cholesterol profile that identifies people at risk and is the first cholesterol test to directly measure LDL.

“Any Lab Test Now is a good fit for the VAP Test as it allows a growing population more access at an affordable price,” added Atherotech president Michael Mullen. “Our test gives people an opportunity to mitigate their risks that might have otherwise gone undetected.”

As part of the partnership, Any Lab Test Now will offer the VAP test individually for $79 and also include it as part of two value panels — the Metabolic Syndrome Panel ($229) and the Heart Health Panel ($279).

Founded in 1992, Any Lab Test Now is a franchise lab testing facility that provides medical lab tests to consumers and employers in a retail setting.
