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

The Iron Deficiency & Anaemia Package Explained
A profile tests for a range of tests:
Measures how much iron is in your blood
Inclusive cost: R240
This test measures the amount of the protein transferrin in your blood. When your body’s stores of iron run low, your liver produces more transferrin to get more iron into your blood.
Inclusive cost: R116
This test measures how much iron is in your blood through looking at ferritin, which is a protein that stores iron.
Inclusive cost: R116
This test checks the amount of vitamin B-12 in the blood or urine to gauge the body’s overall vitamin B-12 stores. The Vitamin B12 test helps to diagnose or rule out if you may have vitamin B12–deficiency anaemia. Also known as cobalamin deficiency, this is a condition that develops when your body can’t make enough healthy red blood cells because it doesn’t have enough vitamin B12. Your body needs vitamin B12 to make healthy red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
Inclusive cost: R145
Additional Tests On Request
A blood test used to evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders, including anaemia, infections and leukaemia.
Inclusive cost: R120
This test measures the level of folate in the red blood cells and also provides a Hematocrit level. Folate is a vitamin that is needed for creating red blood cells and for DNA synthesis. RBC folate levels are less sensitive to short-term dietary effects than are serum folate levels. Red blood cell folate concentration is considered the most reliable indicator of folate status.
Inclusive cost: R116
This is a blood test to measure the concentration of folate in the liquid part of your blood, called serum, or in your red blood cells. The concentration in the red blood cells will be higher than in the serum.
Inclusive cost: R116
