Haematology

Hematology is the study of blood, the blood-forming organs, and blood diseases. Hematology includes the study of etiology, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention of blood diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, such as blood cells, hemoglobin, blood proteins, and the mechanism of coagulation.

Blood Film Examination

Blood Film Examination

£35.00
Ex Tax: £35.00
A blood film should be done along with a full blood count. The blood is examined under the microscope to identify any abnormalities in the red and white blood cells and the platelets. It is also done to identify parasites, such as malaria, in the blood.....
Blood Group

Blood Group

£31.00
Ex Tax: £31.00
Red blood cells (RBCs) have markers on the surface of the cells. The blood group is determined by which proteins or antigens are present or absent on the red cell surface. Two major antigens or surface identifiers on human RBCs are the A and B antigens. People whose red blood cells have A antigens are considered to be blood group A; those...
Coombs (Direct Antiglobulin Test)

Coombs (Direct Antiglobulin Test)

£43.00
Ex Tax: £43.00
The direct antiglobulin test (DAT) is used primarily to help determine if the cause of haemolytic anaemia, a condition in which red blood cells (RBCs) are being destroyed more quickly than they can be replaced, is due to antibodies attached to RBCs. This may occur in autoimmune-related haemolytic anaemias, which are caused by a person pro...
ESR

ESR

£23.00
Ex Tax: £23.00
ESR increases if inflammation is present in the body. It actually measures the rate of fall (sedimentation) of erythrocytes (red blood cells) in a tall, thin tube of blood. Results are reported as how many millimetres of clear plasma are present at the top of the column after one hour. Normally, red cells fall slowly, leaving little clear...
Full Blood Count (FBC)

Full Blood Count (FBC)

£25.00
Ex Tax: £25.00
The full blood count (FBC) is one of the most commonly ordered tests and provides important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Abnormalities in any of these types of cells can indicate the presence of important medical disorders. .....
Haemoglobin

Haemoglobin

£25.00
Ex Tax: £25.00
This test measures the amount of haemoglobin (a protein found in red blood cells) in your blood and is a good indication of your blood's ability to carry oxygen throughout your body. Haemoglobin carries oxygen to cells from the lungs. If your haemoglobin levels are low, you have anaemia, a condition in which your body is not getting enoug...
Haemoglobin Electrophoresis

Haemoglobin Electrophoresis

£70.00
Ex Tax: £70.00
Laboratory testing for haemoglobin variants is an evaluation of the haemoglobin inside the RBCs. Haemoglobin is a protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Abnormal haemoglobins can result in hereditary anaemias such as Sickle Cell Anaemia or Thalassaemia. .....
Indirect Antiglobulin Test

Indirect Antiglobulin Test

£43.00
Ex Tax: £43.00
The RBC antibody screen looks for circulating antibodies in the blood directed against red blood cells (RBCs). The primary reason that a person may have RBC antibodies circulating in their blood is because they have been exposed, through blood transfusion or through pregnancy, to RBCs other than their own. If there are RBC antibodies pr...
Natural Killer Profile

Natural Killer Profile

£430.00
Ex Tax: £430.00
Natural Killer Cells are a type of white blood cell that has been implicated as a cause of recurrent miscarriage......
