Type of sample
What is included in this test
Full blood count (FBC)
Measures the number and type of cells in your blood, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets and it provides important insights into overall health by evaluating blood components essential for oxygen transport, immunity, and clotting. It can help to detect anaemia, infections, bleeding disorders, and other abnormalities.
Liver function blood tests measure enzymes and proteins to screen for liver disease and damage. Abnormal results may indicate hepatitis, cirrhosis, cancer, alcohol abuse, medications toxicity, and infections. The panel provides key insights into liver health and function, helping diagnose and monitor conditions affecting this vital organ.
These biomarkers help to diagnose and monitor certain medical conditions, such as kidney disease, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalances.
Anaemia Markers represent essential indicators to diagnose and monitor anaemia. These markers can provide insights into iron storage and utilisation within the body, helping to determine potential deficiencies or imbalances.
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) provides insights into ongoing inflammatory processes.
Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) and Creatine Kinase (CK) are vital indicators used to assess heart and muscle health. Elevated levels can signal damage or stress to these tissues, helping diagnose conditions like heart attacks or muscle disorders.
These are essential biomarkers for assessing bone health and metabolism. Their levels provide insights into bone density, mineral balance, and potential conditions like gout or osteoporosis.
These biomarkers measure levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, and other fats in your blood. They can help identify the risk of heart-related medical conditions.
Free Thyroxine (FT4) and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) are important health markers for evaluating thyroid function. Their measurements offer insights into the thyroid gland's function and help diagnose conditions like hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.
HbA1c (Hemoglobin A1c) and Glucose are fundamental indicators for monitoring blood sugar regulation. These markers provide insights into an individual's long-term and short-term glucose levels aiding in the diagnosis and management of diabetes.
Used to measure the level of vitamin D in a person's blood. Vitamin D is a crucial nutrient that plays a vital role in bone health, immune function, and various other bodily processes.
Female Hormone Profile
These blood markers include essential female hormones. It can help to assess female health and identify fertility problems.

Comprehensive health assessment
Well-woman blood tests typically include a range of biomarkers that assess various aspects of your health, including full blood count (FBC), cholesterol levels, liver and kidney function, thyroid function, and hormonal levels. These tests provide a comprehensive overview of your overall health and can help identify any underlying conditions that may require attention.
Early detection of health issues
Well-woman blood tests can identify potential health problems such as anaemia, thyroid disorders, high cholesterol, and diabetes before noticeable symptoms occur.
Find health conditions
This test can provide insight into your risk for certain health conditions. For example, lipid profiles can identify elevated cholesterol levels, which are a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. This knowledge allows you to take preventive measures, such as lifestyle modifications or medication, to reduce your risk and maintain good health.
Test your hormones
Hormonal imbalances can have a significant impact on women's health, affecting reproductive function, mood, energy levels, and overall well-being. Well-woman blood tests can measure hormone levels, such as estrogen, progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH), to evaluate hormonal balance and detect any abnormalities or conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Personalised health insights
Well-woman blood tests provide healthcare professionals with essential information to tailor their advice and recommendations based on your specific health needs. This personalised approach can help you optimize your lifestyle choices, such as diet, exercise, and preventive screenings, to maintain good health and prevent future complications.
Monitor health conditions
For women already managing chronic health conditions, well-woman blood tests can serve as a valuable tool to monitor the effectiveness of treatments and ensure that any potential complications or side effects are detected early.
