Heart

The heart is a vital muscular organ in humans, which functions to pump blood around the body through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. In doing so, the blood is able to provide the body with oxygen and nutrients, as well as removing metabolic waste. The heart is located in the chest; specifically in the mediastinum, the middle compartment of the thorax.

Apolipoprotein A1 (12 hrs fasting)

Apolipoprotein A1 (12 hrs fasting)

£60.00
Ex Tax: £60.00
Apolipoproteins are the protein that transport lipids through the body.
Most lipoproteins are cholesterol- or triglyceride-rich and carry lipids throughout the body, for uptake by cells. The concentration of Apo A-I can be measured directly and tends to rise and fall with HDL levels. This has led some experts to think that Apo A-I may be ...
Apolipoprotein B (12 hrs fasting)

Apolipoprotein B (12 hrs fasting)

£60.00
Ex Tax: £60.00
Apolipoproteins provide structural support to lipoproteins.
Levels of apo B tend to mirror the concentration of LDL-C. Many experts think that in the future, the concentration of apo B may eventually prove to be a better indicator of risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than LDL-C. However, the clinical use of apo B and that of other emer...
AST

AST

£19.00
Ex Tax: £19.00
AST is an enzyme found mostly in the heart and liver and to a lesser extent in muscle. When heart, liver or muscle cells are injured, they release AST into the bloodstream......
BNP (NT-pro BNP)

BNP (NT-pro BNP)

£47.00
Ex Tax: £47.00
Measuring BNP can give an early indication of heart failure. This test measures the concentration of BNP or NTproBNP in the blood. BNP is a hormone that helps to regulate blood volume. Both BNP and NT-proBNP are mainly produced by the heart's left ventricle (the organ's main pumping chamber). The heart releases more BNP and NT-proBNP...
C Reactive Protein (High Sensitivity)

C Reactive Protein (High Sensitivity)

£29.00
Ex Tax: £29.00
C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein made by the liver that is released into the blood within a few hours after tissue injury, the start of an infection or other inflammation. It is often the first evidence of inflammation or an infection in the body, with rising concentrations frequently preceding pain, fever or other clinical indicator...
Cholesterol

Cholesterol

£19.00
Ex Tax: £19.00
Cholesterol helps form the membranes for cells in all organs and tissues in your body. It is used to make hormones that are essential for development, growth and reproduction. It forms bile acids that are needed to absorb nutrients from food. The test for cholesterol measures all cholesterol (good and bad).
If you have inherited a high ch...
Creatine Kinase (CK, CPK)

Creatine Kinase (CK, CPK)

£19.00
Ex Tax: £19.00
This test measures the amount of creatine kinase (CK) in the blood. CK is an enzyme found in the heart, brain, skeletal muscle and other tissues. Increased amounts are released into the bloodstream when there is muscle damage, such as hard exercise or a heart attack.....
Cystatin C

Cystatin C

£47.00
Ex Tax: £47.00
Cystatin C is filtered out of the blood by the kidney. Decreases in kidney function lead to increases in cystatin C. Unlike creatinine, cystatin C is not significantly affected by muscle mass, gender, age, or race. When the kidneys are functioning normally, concentrations of cystatin C in the blood are stable, but as kidney function deter...
Digoxin

Digoxin

£56.00
Ex Tax: £56.00
Digoxin is widely used in the treatment of various heart conditions, namely atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and sometimes heart failure that cannot be controlled by other medication. .....
