Advanced Blood Tests for Cancer Detection and Treatment

Advancing technology and medical research has unveiled new, non-invasive cancer tests that deliver highly accurate cancer screening results with a simple blood test. The technology, which involves scanning the blood, also referred to as a ‘liquid biopsy’,  where a test is done on a sample of blood to look for cancer cells from a tumour […]

Preelampsia Screening (SFLT-1/PLGF Ratio)

Preeclampsia is a pregnancy complication characterised by high blood pressure and signs of damage to another organ system, most often the liver and kidneys. Preeclampsia usually begins after 20 weeks of pregnancy in women whose blood pressure had been normal. Even a slight rise in blood pressure may be a sign of Preeclampsia. Left untreated, […]

Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm (ROMA™)

ROMA is a qualitative serum test that combines the results of HE4, CA 125, and menopausal status into a numerical score. ROMA is used to assist in evaluating whether a pre-menopausal or post-menopausal woman with an ovarian adnexal mass has a high or low probability of finding malignancy on surgery. ROMA is for women who […]

QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus (QFT-Plus)

Tuberculosis (TB) is an airborne disease and the transmission of TB occurs through the inhalation of droplets that are either coughed or sneezed from a person infected with active TB disease of the lung (known as active pulmonary TB). It is important to note that some individuals who become infected with the TB bacteria do […]

Lipoprotein(a)

Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad cholesterol,” is typically associated with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Lipoproteins are substances made up of protein and fat. LDLs can be separated by type and if they include lipoprotein(a), or Lp(a). Typically, doctors test for: Total cholesterol levels LDL HDL (high-density lipoprotein) Triglycerides, another type of […]

Urea Breath Test

The Urea Breath Test is a simple test that is done on a patient’s breath for the purpose of detecting possible infection by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). H. pylori is strongly associated with peptic ulcer disease and chronic active gastritis. Additionally, H. pylori infection is an independent risk factor for gastric cancer and primary malignant […]

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Receptor Antibody (TRAb)

The TRAb test is often used for the differential diagnosis of hyperthyroidism and as part of treatment management. Hyperthyroidism is when the thyroid produces too much thyroid hormone, making the body use energy faster than it should. More specifically, the TRAb test is often carried out for the following purposes: Differential diagnosis of the causes […]

Thyroid-Stimulating Immunoglobulin (TSI)

TSI measurements are used to monitor the response to Graves’ disease therapy and to predict remission or relapse, confirm Graves’ ophthalmopathy, and predict neonatal thyroid hyperthyroidism. Graves’ disease is one of the major causes of hyperthyroidism. Because TSI is specific to the stimulatory kind of antibody, as contrasted with TRAb which detects both, therefore, the […]
