Anaemia Blood Test Kit Online, a profile of 19 markers.
What is an anaemia test?
Note also that it is a condition with a deficiency of healthy red blood cells. It can be temporary or long-term and ranges from mild to moderate, depending on haemoglobin.
Why should you get tested??
Therefore, the signs and symptoms may vary depending on the cause. Depending on the reason, you may have no symptoms. However, the symptoms may be:
- Difficulty breathing.
- Chest pain.
- Dizziness or confusion.
19 Anaemia Blood test BioMarkers
- Haematocrit (HCT): volume percentage of red blood cells.
- Haemoglobin carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
- MCH (Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin): average haemoglobin in one of your red cells.
- MCHC (Mean Corpuscular
- Haemoglobin Concentration): haemoglobin concentration in a given volume of a packed red cell.
- MCV (Mean Corpuscular Volume): average volume of a red corpuscle.
- RDW-CV: range of red cell volume variations in percentage.
- RDW-SD: range of red cell volume variations in femtoliters.
- Red Cell Count (RBC): how many red cells do you have?
- White Cell Count (WBC): how many white cells do you have?
- Basophils: protects your body from bacterias.
- Eosinophils combat parasites and certain infections.
- Lymphocytes fight bacterial and viral infections.
- Monocytes: remove dead or damaged cells.
- Neutrophils: fight your body infection.
- MPV (Mean Platelet Volume) indicates the production of the fragmented cells of your bone marrow.
- Platelet Count: measures how many platelets you have. They are parts of the blood that help you.
- Iron: helps carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of the body.
- CRP (C-reactive protein ): measures levels of inflammation in your body.
- Ferritin measures the amount of iron your body stores.
Also, note How our Home Kits Work
Order your kit online and once it arrive collect your sample at home.
Drop off the parcel preferably in the morning to get the earlier box clearances. Using the Return Track24 pre-paid label on each kit, drop the package off at the nearest Royal Mail Priority Red Box to return it to the Lab.
Once your results are ready, we will send you an email with your certificate.
When collecting your sample, try the following tips:
- Drink plenty of water. Being well-hydrated will make it easier to manage your sample.
- Shower before you take your Anaemia Blood test or run your hands under warm water, as heat improves flow.
- Do light exercise (move around, walk, etc.) to get the body flowing.
- Ensure your arm is below your heart level – let gravity do some of the work.
- Nails that are too long can make it difficult to collect a sample.
- Do not shake the sample vigorously, but invert the tube gently ten times. (gently swirl the line after each drop).
- Do not squeeze the finger.
- Re-warm your hands during collection when needed.
How long do the results take?
However, the target turnaround time for the anaemia test results is 1-3 working days. However, the turnaround time is a guide only and sometimes depends on assay run schedules.
But, importantly, please take your sample from Monday to Thursday to avoid delivery delays at the lab.
Our Laboratory Scientists take care of your samples.
Lastly, the Medicines Online outpatient clinic can also be used for an anaemia test UK-wide in the Battersea/Clapham Junction area. It is 2 mins from the tube. Therefore, easy access for Londoners or visitors to London means an easy and fast sampling solution with our quick results policy. In addition to the convenient location, the clinic staff directly communicate with laboratory staff onsite. Therefore, your sample will be processed quickly and without clotting issues from any transportation or heat issues.
Please note that sample management within the UK is a priority for our Laboratory Scientists. They have experience managing sample processing and the full range of available sampling options at our Laboratory.
