Pregnancy Test – Beta HCG (Quantitative)
Dears Pharmacy are working in partnership with London Medical Laboratory to deliver this test.
Price per in pharmacy test provided during booking prior to confirmation.
Blood tests can detect Beta-HCG at lower levels than a urine test so this test can help you confirm your pregnancy at the earliest possible date.
This test checks for the presence of the pregnancy hormone Beta-HCG.
The presence of the hormone Beta-HCG is used to confirm pregnancy and the quantitative levels of this hormone in your blood can sometimes be used to determine the gestational age of your foetus.
How does this test work?
There is no better way to check for underlying health problems, or monitor existing conditions, than with a blood test.
Whether you are concerned about your health, managing an existing condition or simply curious, a blood test provides a fast, affordable and easy way to start taking charge of your own health.
We offer in-store testing to make the process as simple, stress free and convenient as possible.
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.
