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

What is HUTS?

HUTS or the Healthcare UTilisation and Seroprevalence Survey is a study that is returning to find out more about the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa.

We are doing a questionnaire with invited participants and taking a small amount of blood to find out if they have had COVID in the past. Then as a thank-you, they get a R50 voucher!

The study is being conducted by the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD), Genesis Analytics and Epicentre.

Where Did HUTS 2 Happen?

The HUTS teams are visiting past participants:

✔ Mitchell’s Plain in the Western Cape

✔ & Edendale in Kwazulu-Natal

What are we hoping to achieve?

COVID-19 has affected the lives of all South Africans. There is still a lot to learn about COVID-19 and how it has affected communities. HUTS-2 aims to find out if there are community members who may have had COVID-19 but did not feel sick or could not get to health services if they did get sick. This information is important to guide in planning and decision-making for preventing future waves of the pandemic in South Africa, as well as to help ensure that health facilities are available to those who need it.

Who can sign up for HUTS?

Everyone who participated in the first HUTS survey can participate in the HUTS-2. We may also be visiting additional households using maps of the area. House locations have been randomly selected for participation in two districts.

How long Will it take?

The study procedure will take about 30 minutes to complete. The procedure will include a questionnaire, and the collection of blood samples for lab testing for HIV and COVID-19. Participation is voluntary and you can withdraw at any time. All information will remain confidential.

How will the findings be used?

The learnings from the study will be shared with decision makers in government and the private sector to assist with the COVID-19 respons

Will I get R50 for taking part?

Yes, each person who takes part will get a R50 grocery voucher!

How can HUTS help you?

Each person who takes will be given a grocery store voucher worth R50 for being a part of this study. Those that take part in this study, will help us learn more about how some diseases affect different people, and how COVID-19 has affected people. We can then plan better how to protect people from diseases. We will also help people by testing them for HIV, they will be able to find out if they have the HIV virus. If they do, they can get doctors help and medicine. This can help them from getting more sick. They can also choose to find out if they have had COVID-19 when the results are ready in about two months’ time.

When will I see my antibody results from HUTS?

They can also choose to find out if they have had COVID-19 when the results are ready in about two months’ time.
