What our EPIC clients have to say

Compliments to your staff and centre. I was so impressed by how the entire process was handled. So polite and comforting and professional.

Dee Munks, Durban Epic Testing Centre Client

Very impressed with your service. Your Staff were professional and well mannered. Will definitely recommend you!

Cheryl Clegg, Cape Town Epic Testing Centre Client

Baie danke dat julle epicentre gekry het om my COVID-19 toets tuis to kom doen. Die hele proses was glad nie onaangenaam nie, Josh was baie vriendelike en die toets was vinnig en glad nie traumaties soos wat die staat en social media jou wil laat dink nie. Weereens dankie, ek sal jul op hoogte hou oor die resultaat proses.

Jaco, PI; Cape Town Epic Testing Centre Client
What a fast and friendly service!
Nadia, Maritime Solutions

My client would like to thank the entire Cape Town Epicentre team, for the excellent manner in which their employees have been made aware of their status.

Jan, Optimal Solve; Cape Town Epic Testing Centre Client

I am so grateful for all that Johann has done for us as a family and still doing. I am eternally grateful, and I stand in awe of his kindness. It brings tears to my eyes to think that someone can be so kind to total strangers. May the Lord bless you and keep you and take you from strength to strength. I took my uncle from a drug house about two months ago. He was slowly disappearing because of malnutrition. He doesn’t have any children or a wife. We all he has, and now you are willing to go the extra mile for him. My words are not enough to thank you. 🙏🏼 Bless you sir

Guidelines for Semen Collection

The Men’s Fertility Test Package Explained

Routine Semen Analysis

Semen analysis, also known as a sperm count test, analyses the health and viability of a man’s sperm. A semen analysis is often recommended when couples are having trouble getting pregnant. The test will help a doctor determine if a man is infertile; as an analysis will help determine if low sperm count or sperm dysfunction is the reason behind infertility. Men who have had a vasectomy also are recommended they get a semen analysis to make sure no sperm are in their semen.

Inclusive Cost: R1950

Additional Tests On Request

Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) Levels test

This test is used in men to measure the level of FSH found in your blood. Your doctor will order an FSH test to find the underlying cause of symptoms affecting the reproductive system, as it can shed more light on reduced total motile sperm count or low sperm density. This hormone works with luteinizing hormone to help ensure that the testicles are producing sufficient amounts of sperm and testosterone.

Inclusive Cost: R155

Luteinizing Hormone test

This test measures the level of luteinizing hormone (LH) in your blood. LH is made by your pituitary gland. In men, this test can help find the cause of infertility, help find the reason for a low sperm count, and help find the reason for a low sex drive.

Inclusive Cost: R155

Total Testosterone

This is a screening test is looks at the total level of the hormone testosterone in your blood. When levels of testosterone drop below what is considered normal, it may have a direct impact on fertility in men. It can cause problems with sperm production, as well as cause problems like erectile dysfunction and negatively impact a man’s sex drive.

Inclusive Cost: R155

Prolactin Test

Prolactin is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. Prolactin is usually measured when checking for pituitary tumors and/or assessing issues with fertility. Too much of this hormone can cause infertility in men. When high, prolactin can negatively impact testicle health, resulting in abnormal sperm or low testosterone levels.

Inclusive Cost: R155

Estradiol Test

This test measures the amount of estradiol (E2). Elevated estradiol levels are correlated with male infertility (Leavy et al., 2017). This test can help your doctor diagnose this issue and increase fertility. Plus, elevated levels of estradiol can be a symptom of diseases like adrenal cortex, testis or medications affecting the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis (Leavy et al., 2017). So this test can also be useful in picking up these diseases early.

Inclusive Cost: R155

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone

When the thyroid is not functioning properly, this may interfere with fertility in men. In addition to fertility problems, when the thyroid is underactive, men might also experience weight gain, fatigue, muscle aches, and dry skin. If their thyroid is over-active, they might experience fatigue, palpitations, fast heart rate and weight loss.

Inclusive Cost: R170
