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

The service I’ve experienced was extremely consistent, kind and very well organized. I was approached with a smile as usual at Epicenter whilst the information conveyed was concise and I’m certain to let people know that Epicenter is the Best place to go to should you be wondering. I certainly hope the service level will always be kept of high quality as I’ve experienced. Thank you Epicenter Team. From dealing with you before up until now, your team has become greater via whatsapp and whilst professionally physically engaging at your Test center. Thank you!

Alain, Rondebosch Client
Friendly service, quick and easy. Was in and out in a heartbeat and taking of blood was pain free.
Nayan, Rondebosch Client
Testing was quick and efficient and very professional. I highly recommend this place for any health tests needed.
Joshua, 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

Melton, Cape Town Epic Testing centre client

They are simply the best! Good customer service, cognisant of the need for sensitivity and confidentiality and very friendly. I used to do my tests with another facility but now I’m a repeat client at Epicentre and the best part is that they take walk-ins. I needed to do a lot of tests and screenings two weeks ago, the results were delivered earlier than promised and yesterday, I went back for other tests. Please check them out, you won’t regret it! They are currently doing a Cough Check tor free, I already did mine.

Yolanda, Johannesburg Branch

This is a really great place to get any kind of pathology work done. The staff are very kind and efficient and the discounted prices of the tests are an added bonus. I would highly recommend this centre.

Thule, Johannesburg Branch

My experience getting blood tests at the Epicentre has been excellent as the staff are all very friendly and professionally. The staff are well trained at taking blood painlessly and if they feel they can’t find the vain they will find a more senior staff member to do it. As someone with difficult collapsed veins i never worry about becoming a pin cushion at Epicentre.

Kylie, Johannesburg Branch

The people here are so friendly and helpful. My blood was taken quickly efficiently and painlessly and my results were recieved a day later via email. I give them a five star rating.

Stella, Johannesburg Branch

Our The HPV Test Home Package Explained

What Are the Tests in The HPV Test Package?

1. HPV DNA Test.

This test is specifically designed to detect and monitor the presence of the human papillomavirus (HPV).

The HPV Test Package Procedure

Photo taken from health.gov.au.

At Epicentre, we offer self collection testing:

1. You will be given a long cotton swab. You will then be given the chance to wash your hands and be taken to a private space.

2. Once you are alone, take the cotton swab firmly in your hand and twist it out of its case.

3. Now insert the swab only a few centimetres into your vagina and rotate it for 20 to 30 seconds.

4. Put the cotton back into its plastic case and into its provided plastic packet.

5. We will take the sample for testing, and you will get a notification that your result has been uploaded to our website app.

Is Self Collection Testing Safe?

Yes, evidence has shown that testing for HPV by using a self-collected sample from your vagina is just as safe and as accurate at detecting HPV as a clinician-collected sample taken from the cervix during an examination (health.gov.au, 2022).

Can HPV Cause Cancer?

Yes. HPV itself isn’t cancer, but it can cause changes in the body that lead to cancer (CDC, 2022).

✔ Cervical cancer in women.

✔ Penile cancer in men.

✔ Anal cancer in both women and men.

✔ Cancer in the back of the throat (oropharyngeal cancer), including the base of the tongue and tonsils.
