Our Essential Blood Test is a comprehensive, quick, and reassuring way of assessing your current state of health.
What can I learn from this test?
Our essential profile contains many of the tests your doctor would order. We've carefully selected these markers to give you insights into your health and well-being. We've included standard haematology and biochemistry profiles to cover your bodily systems, including a full blood count (FBC), kidney function, liver health, cholesterol, diabetes, iron status, and inflammation (CRP).
Who is this test for?
