Tests and analyses

We offer a comprehensive range of services, from the most basic tests to the most complex analyses.

Results in under 24 hours.

PCR TEST (COVID-19)

The PCR test detects a fragment of the genetic material from the SARS-CoV-2 virus on a nasopharyngeal swab, taken from people with or without symptoms.

ANTIBODY TEST (COVID-19)

Through a blood test, we can detect whether or not a person has antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This determines their current immunity to COVID-19.

ANTIGEN TEST (COVID-19)

The rapid antigen test detects proteins from the COVID-19 virus, especially in the first five days of the person’s symptoms. It consists of taking a sample from the mucous membranes in the nose, using a long cotton bud. Same-day results.

HYDROGEN BREATH TEST FOR INTOLERANCES

Labosar offers a test that determines the presence of an intolerance to lactose, fructose, sorbitol or lactulose and of SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth).

It consists of administering a certain amount of the substance being analysed. If this type of sugar is fermented by the bacteria in the gut, hydrogen is produced. When produced in the gut, hydrogen gas spreads through the blood and is expelled in the breath. The concentration of hydrogen in the breath is measured at certain intervals.

The test takes 3 hours and is available upon appointment.

MEDITERRANEAN DIET TEST

The Mediterranean diet tests analyses the gut flora and detects the presence of IgC antibodies in order to determine the person’s degree of sensitisation to various foods and food additives.

HISTAMINE INTOLERANCE (DAO) TEST

This is a clinical analysis that measures the functional activity of DAO (DiAmine Oxidase) in the blood. DAO is the enzyme responsible for metabolising histamine from food in the gut. If the person has reduced DAO activity, histamine accumulates, causing adverse effects such as gut problems, skin issues and migraines.

PRENATAL TESTING

This non-invasive prenatal testing consists of taking a blood sample from the expectant mother and analysing it to detect the most frequent chromosomal anomalies.

We offer extended non-invasive prenatal testing to our clients: as well as the most common diseases, it can detect other genetic alterations known as microdeletions. Microdeletions are small losses of genetic material associated with some serious development problems in newborns, including DiGeorge syndrome, 1p36 deletion syndrome, Cri-du-chat syndrome, Angelman syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome.

DRUG TESTS

These tests detect the presence of illegal drugs or prescription medication. Urine, blood, saliva or hair samples may be analysed. The urine test is the most common of them all.

The number of days these types of substances can be detected properly depends on the drug, the type and frequency of consumption, the purity, the biological sample used for analysis, the person’s physiology, etc.

ALLERGY TESTS

Allergy tests measure the amount of IgE antibodies in the blood. A small amount of IgE antibodies is considered normal, but high IgE levels may indicate a possible allergy.

The substances that cause an allergic reaction are called allergens. Common allergens include pollen, dust, animal dander, foods like nuts and seafood, and some medicines, such as penicillin.

PATERNITY TESTS

The paternity test compares DNA from two or more samples to confirm or rule out a father-child relationship. There are two types of test, depending on how the information obtained will be used: informational or legal.
