We offer a range of testing options to try and make the process as simple, stress free and convenient as possible.

  • In-Store Phlebotomy - For even faster results you can come into one of our stores to have your blood taken by one of our qualified phlebotomists

You will receive your results on the day after we receive your sample in our laboratory. We run a 24/7 laboratory operation and test all samples as quickly as possible after receiving them which enables our team of in-house GPs to review and communicate your results in the fastest possible timeframe. 

*It is important to note that blood tests alone are not a substitute for seeing a doctor, particularly if you have any symptoms. You should not make a diagnosis or start any treatment without a consultation with a doctor or suitably trained healthcare professional.

Biomarker Profiles

Diabetes (1 Biomarkers)

Checking your levels of HbA1c is how to confirm if you have (or are at risk of developing) diabetes. Unmanaged or undiagnosed diabetes is one of the leading causes of mortality. For anyone who already knows they have diabetes, regular HbA1c checks are essential to monitor progress.

Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test is used to measure the average level of blood sugar over the past two to three months and is commonly used to diagnose and monitor diabetes. The sugar is called glucose which builds up in the blood and binds to the haemoglobins in the red blood cells. HbA1c test will then measure how much glucose is bound and is used during the diagnoses of diabetes.
