Vaginitis is a polymicrobial disease, which means that it can result from an infection with yeast, bacteria or Trichomonas. A yeast infection leads to candidiasis, a bacterial infection leads to bacteria vaginitis and a trichomonas infection causes trichomonas vaginitis. Culture is important in identification of the cause of vaginitis.Meanwhile, molecular method using PCR is a more sensitive method of detecting vaginitis.
Urinalysis is a test that is performed in a laboratory to assist a doctor in detecting abnormalities that are manifested in the urine. The way the body removes waste and pollutants is affected by a variety of illnesses and ailments. Any of these issues can have an impact on the look, concentration, and substance of a urine sample. Urinalysis is important prior to surgery, as a preemptive screening during a pregnancy checkup and as part of a routine medical or physical examination. It can also be used to confirm or rule out certain conditions, such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, and urinary tract infection
Typhoid fever, often referred to as “enteric fever,” is an infection caused predominantly by Salmonella enterica subspecies. Typhoid fever, if left untreated, can lead to delirium, obtundation, intestinal hemorrhage, bowel perforation, and death. Long-term or permanent neuropsychiatric complications may befall survivors. Typhoid IgG/IgM detection and Widal Titre are used to screen for typhoid infection to aid early treatment.
Trace metals have potential to be toxic when present in high concentration in the body. This profile detects and identifies low levels of metals in a blood sample. 24 hour urine or random urine sample can also be used. The trace metals measured in this profile are Aluminum, Manganese, Iron, Calcium, Zinc, Magnesium, Copper, Cadmium, Mercury, Lead and Chromium
The TORCH screen is a group of blood tests that check for infections in a pregnant woman that can affect the fetus and cause newborn infections at birth. The full meaning of TORCH is Toxoplasmosis, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes Simplex and HIV
These are a series of blood tests that check the levels of thyroid hormones in order to evaluate the function of the thyroid gland and to diagnose thyroid disorders. The thyroid is a small gland located in the lower-front part of the neck. This profile involves the measurement of some thyroid hormones which are T4, Free T3, Free T4, TSH, Thyroglobulin Abs and Thyroid Peroxidase
These are a series of blood tests that are used to evaluate the function of the thyroid gland and to diagnose thyroid disorders. The thyroid is a small gland located in the lower-front part of the neck. This profile involves the measurement of various thyroid hormones which are FT3, FT4 and TSH.
Thromboembolism is a condition in which a blood clot forms in a blood vessel, breaks loose and is carried by the bloodstream to block another blood vessel. This profile includes screening for thrombophilia markers such as Factor V Leiden Common Mutation, Factor II Prothrombin Common Mutation, MTHFR Common Variants, Lupus Anticoagulant, Coagulation Profile, Antithrombin III, Protein C, Free Protein S, Anticardiolipin and Full Blood Count.
This test helps to verify if what the patient is presenting is lupus and not another disease. It also helps to determine prognosis or progression of disease, to monitor the severity of the disease, the efficacy of treatment, medication-related side effects, and in making treatment recommendations and to adjust for changing symptoms. Some of the screening tests are Antinuclear antibody (ANA) autoantibodies, FBC, ESR, Complement 3,4, cReactive protein, CENP, RF, and some antibody screenings.
This profile includes test for Syphilis and Herpes Simplex I/II by PCR. PCR for Syphilis is a sensitive and specific test which acts an adjunct to dark ground microscopy and treponemal serology. PCR for Herpes Simplex detects Herpes Simplex Virus infection and differentiates between HSV1 and HSV2.
Sports Performance Profile is a window into an athlete’s body. It provides athletes with information on dietary shortages, hormone imbalances, injury risk, hydration level, muscle status, and more, allowing them to better understand their nutrition and performance. Tests in this profile are FBC/ESR, Biochemistry Profile, HDL/LDL, Ferritin, cReactive Protein, Omega 3/ Omega 6, Mineral Screen, Vitamin B9 and Vitamin B12.
This profile involves both the blood serum and urine samples to detect sexually transmitted diseases. It screens for HIV 1&2, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Syphilis, H. pylori, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Mycoplasma genitalium, Ureaplasma, Trichomonas vaginalis, Gardnerella vaginalis and Herpes Simplex I/II.
This profile involves the use of blood serum for the purpose of detecting antibodies or antibody-like substances that appear specifically in association with certain diseases. It screens for the four most common STIs which are HIV 1&2, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and Syphilis.
This quick STI check-up is carried out using urine samples. It will test for Chlamydia trachomatis, N. gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Mycoplasma genitalium, Macrolide Resistance Test (M.gen)*, Herpes I/II, Ureaplasma, Trichomonas vaginalis, Gardnerella vaginalis.
The senior women’s profile is a general health screening for women who are 60years and above. It also includes pap smear and HbA1c test. Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney illness, ovarian cancer and cervical cancer can all be diagnosed with this profile.
The senior men’s profile is a general health screening for men who are 60years and above. It also includes prostate profile and HbA1c test. Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney illness, colon cancer and prostate cancer can all be diagnosed with this profile.
Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the immune system becomes over-active resulting in painful joints and swelling. When rheumatic conditions are left untreated, it can seriously affect the quality of life leading to a disability, especially rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatology Profile 3 screens for rheumatoid disorders and the profile includes tests like Anti CCP antibodies, ANA, cReactive protein, FBC, ESR, RF, and Uric Acid.
The connective tissues support, binds and separates the tissues and organs in the body. In autoimmune disease the body makes auto-antibodies that attack the normal cells and damages the connective tissue cells throughout the body. Rheumatology Profile 2 screens for connective tissue disorders and it includes tests like FBC, ESR, RF, ANA, Uric Acid, Anti SM, Anti-dsDNA.
Rheumatism or rheumatic illness refers to the conditions which are primarily caused by swelling and inflammation of joints and muscles. It can also be caused by wear and tear to the cartilage and joints. A rheumatology profile screen is a test for connective tissue and rheumatoid disorder and it is useful in diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, dermatomyositis and polymyositis. This profile includes FBC, ESR, Uric Acid, c Reactive protein, RF and Anti CCP antibodies.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a type of autoimmune arthritis that causes pain and swelling in the joints. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or the C-reactive protein (CRP) are almost always elevated in any inflammatory rheumatic disease. Several blood tests, such as those for rheumatoid factor (RF) and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptides (anti-CCP), can detect the presence of antibodies that indicate inflammation.
