Blood sample collection options

Finger prick kit (FREE)

All our kits require a finger prick blood sample which is quick and easy to do at home. But if you don't like the idea of squeezing blood out of your finger, here are some other options:

A home visit by a nurse (+£60)

Have a nurse visit you at home to take your blood sample from your vein. The kit will come with everything the nurse needs to do the blood sample collection. Once you've placed your order, we'll be in touch to arrange an appointment.

Visit a clinic (+£45)

You can visit one of our partner clinics to have a nurse take a blood sample from your vein. Select this option at checkout where you can also see which clinics are near you. Once you've placed your order, we'll send you an email to arrange your appointment.

Organise a nurse myself (FREE)

If none of the above options work for you, you can arrange your own medical professional to collect your sample. There is no additional charge for this. Once you've ordered your test, we'll send you everything you and your chosen medical professional will need to collect a sample and post it back to our labs.

You can choose your blood sample collection method in the checkout. Learn more about sample collection.

When to take the test

What is the Advanced Testosterone Blood Test?

Our Advanced Testosterone home blood test checks both your Free and Total testosterone levels. Checking both Free and Total Testosterone paints a clearer picture of your potential. While Total shows all circulating testosterone, Free testosterone reveals what's active, helping you optimise your training and performance.

Why is testosterone important for men?

Testosterone is a hormone that plays a vital role in men's health and wellbeing. It is responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics, such as facial hair, deep voice, and muscle mass. Testosterone also contributes to bone density, sperm production, and overall physical and mental health. Low testosterone levels can lead to a range of symptoms, including fatigue, decreased libido, depression, and decreased muscle mass.

How do PEDs affect testosterone levels?

Performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) can have a significant impact on testosterone levels, often leading to hormonal imbalances and potential health risks. PEDs, such as anabolic steroids, can increase testosterone levels beyond natural levels, leading to a host of potential health issues, including liver damage, infertility, and heart disease. Regularly checking testosterone levels through blood tests is essential for individuals using PEDs to monitor their health and detect any potential issues early on.

Why is it important to track testosterone when on TRT

Tracking testosterone levels when on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is essential for ensuring optimal treatment outcomes and minimising potential side effects. TRT aims to replace natural testosterone levels in men with low testosterone, but the appropriate dosage can vary from person to person. Regularly checking testosterone levels through blood tests allows for personalised hormone management plans and optimisation of testosterone health. It also helps to ensure that the dosage of testosterone replacement therapy is correct, avoiding potential side effects such as acne, hair loss, and mood swings. By monitoring testosterone levels regularly when on TRT, men can take control of their health and make informed decisions about their wellbeing.
