THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Startup firm pick2heal has come out with a mobile application that makes medical laboratory tests cost-effective and brings a wide range of lab services to the doorsteps of the patients.

If one needs the service at their doorstep, it will be provided at a discount price from the best labs nearby.
