OUR BODIES
OUR HEALTH

Taking care of your body is a healthy and empowering thing to do. But many of us face common barriers to screening like:

 

 

  • Not having time, or not wanting to take time off work
  • Not having a regular family doctor
  • Feeling uncomfortable with the process
  • Living far away from a clinic

 

It’s important not to let these barriers prevent you from getting screened – learn more here about the benefits of screening.

VALIDATED TESTING

Your sample will be analyzed at our partner lab, using the same tests they use when a sample is collected at the clinic. Our partner lab is a licensed hospital laboratory in downtown Toronto, and is an accredited ISO 15189 facility.


Our lab uses validated molecular diagnostics tests to identify an infection. That means that they test for the DNA of the virus or bacteria they’re targeting.
