Health Management Service

What we test

Cholesterol

High Cholesterol levels can be a risk factor towards heart disease, strokes or blocked arteries.

Diabetes

Screens blood sugar levels to highlight whether you are at risk of developing diabetes and can monitor glucose levels in those already diagnosed with Diabetes.

Vitamin D

This tests the level of Vitamin D, as abnormal levels of vitamin D can be an indicator of bone disorders, nutrition problems, organ damage, or other medical conditions.

Iron

Iron is required to make red blood cells which carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body and is important for healthy muscles, bone marrow, and organ function. Low iron could be an indicator of anaemia.

CRP

The level of C-reactive protein (CRP) increases when there's inflammation in the body. The hs-CRP test can be used to help determine the risk of developing coronary artery disease.

Blood Protein

Proteins are important for the health and growth of the body's cells and tissues. The blood protein test can help diagnose health conditions including kidney disease, liver, and blood disorders.

Hearing

Hearing tests assess general hearing capabilities as well as looking for infections. Hearing supports quality of life as well as supporting the awareness of environment and helping with balance.

ECG

An ECG can help detect arrhythmias, where the heart beats too slowly, too quickly, or irregularly while also helping serve as an indication of coronary heart disease.

Blood Pressure

A blood pressure test is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low.

  • What are the different types of COVID-19 tests?

    There are two main types of test:

    Antigen Test: this tests for the presence of a virus in a sample. There are ranges of tests in this category from ‘gold standard’ tests that are done by an accredited lab to more of screening solutions that require little to no equipment and are able to provide results in 8-30 minutes

    Antibody Tests: this tests whether someone has developed antibodies and had the virus previously.

  • What does an antibody test involve?

    There are two different types of Antibody tests:

    1) Lab based Antibody test- a test kit is used to gather blood from a patient which is then tested in the lab. These are usually referred to as ELISA tests. They are extremely accurate and able to let you know if you had the virus and developed antibodies as a result of this.

    2) Blood prick tests- these test kits can be used by trained professional to determine at point of care whether you had the virus. A small blood prick is taken and used in a cartridge to do the diagnostic.

  • Can you test people at my workplace?

    Yes, we provide a number of solutions from regular lab based testing to developing regular screening programmes.

    In the first instance we propose designing and agreeing clinical governance approach to workplace testing and then we provide a solution to support this.

  • Can you offer remote-only testing?

    Yes, we have a number of remote solutions if you decide you only want to do ad-hoc testing.

  • Covid-19 Mutation

    Current mutation of SARS Cov-2: D614G SARS COV-2

    Mutated position by SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphism)

    Nucleotide change at 23,403 base of RNA from adenosine (A) to guanine (G)

    Mutated at D614 on the Spike Protein (SP)

    enhancing the binding affinity to ACE2 receptor

    no mutation on the nucleocapid protein (NP) of Sars Cov-2

    In summary this has no impact on our ability to successfully detect covid-19

  • Refund Policy

    The Agilis Health refund policy is as follows:

    • If the sample pack has not been dispatched at the time of cancellation a full refund can be offered
    • If the sample pack has been dispatched, the pack can be returned and the order cancelled with a fee of £50 plus VAT being applied. The refund will be offered, minus the cancellation fee of £50 plus VAT
    • Once the sample pack has been used to take a sample, or has been tampered with, full costs remain and no cancellation or refund is available.
    • Where applicable, referring to the above conditions, refund amounts will appear in your bank account 7 days after receipt of the returned sealed untampered sample pack
    • No refunds will be issued for Day 2 bookings (Green countries) and Day 2 & 8 bookings (Amber countries)
  • Test to Release – best time to book tests

    Please note if you are booking Test to Release, the earliest that the sample can be collected is during the course of day 5 of your quarantine, with day 1 commencing from the time that you arrive in the UK. This means that you are able to book a test on day 1 of quarantine, get pack in time and arrange a video call appointment for day 5. This would allow us to get the sample to the lab the day following your test and then issue your result typically within 12-18 hours of it getting to the lab (guaranteed within 24 hours of the sample getting to the lab).

  • Fit to Fly

    Many governments and airlines require that a test for COVID-19 be taken prior to travelling. The rules differ by government and airline and some accept antigen tests, some only accept PCR tests and there is little consistency as to the timeline requirement for the test result, but typically it is 48-72 hours prior to travel. Please check specific requirements prior to booking the Fit to Fly test.

  • Where is the clinic?

    Typically Agilis operates a home service. Our service includes a video call with one of our nurses that is able to guide you through the sample collection process. As such we are able to offer our service nationwide.
