Acid phosphatase is an enzyme found throughout the body, but primarily in the prostate gland.
Acid phosphatase blood tests are usually done to diagnose if prostate cancer has spread to other parts of the body (metastasized), or to check the effectiveness of treatment.
We will send you your Acid Phosphatase (Total) blood and test sample collection kit together with the details of a convenient clinic where you can go and have your sample taken.
Your Acid Phosphatase (Total) test includes 1st class postage and packaging for you to send your blood and sample directly to our laboratory for analysis. If you live in an area where you cannot rely on the post or you simply want to ensure that your sample arrives at the laboratory the following day, you may wish to send your blood and sample guaranteed next day delivery for extra reassurance.
