July 01, 2021

Ro, the healthcare technology company, has announced the acquisition of at-home diagnostics company Kit. The acquisition expands the diagnostics capabilities and lab infrastructure of Ro's vertically-integrated primary care platform and builds on the company's existing strengths, including nationwide telehealth, pharmacy, lab processing, and in-home testing and care services. Kit's at-home, self-administered testing solutions will enable Ro to facilitate patient-centric primary care experiences for an expanded scope of conditions and support chronic and preventive care, virtually and in patients' homes.

Latham & Watkins LLP represents Ro in the transaction with a corporate deal team led by New York partner Peyton Worley and Los Angeles partner Brian Duff, with Los Angeles associate Todd Noelle and New York associate Eduard Grigoryan.

The firm also previously advised Ro in its acquisition of Modern Fertility, its Series D Financing, and its acquisition of Workpath.
