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 Are the Tests in The Kidney Package?

If you are at risk for liver and pancreas issues, these tests are crucial to take control of your health.

Full package: R574

The Kidney Package Explained

Urea & Electrolytes and Creatinine (U & E and Creatinine)

A U and E is usually performed to confirm normal kidney function or to exclude a serious imbalance of biochemical salts in the bloodstream. A diverse number of conditions may be detected on the U and E test, as each parameter tested may be high or low.

Serum Creatine Test

This test is used to find out if there is a build-up of creatine which is a waste product. Creatine can build up as a result of muscle tissue breakdown.

Alkaline Phosphatase (Alk Phos) Test

The alkaline phosphatase (ALP) test measures how much alkaline phosphatase you have in your blood. You may need this test if you’re at risk for a condition that affects your liver.

BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen)

The blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test reveals important information about how well your kidneys are working. A BUN test measures the amount of urea nitrogen that’s in your blood.

Additional Tests On Request

Urinalysis / Urine Culture (MCS)

A urinalysis is a simple test that looks at a small sample of your urine. It can help find problems that need treatment, including infections or kidney problems. It can also help find serious diseases in the early stages, like kidney disease, diabetes, or liver disease.

R600

Albumin test

An albumin blood test gives important information on your liver and kidney function. Albumin is a protein that is found in your blood plasma. Low albumin levels suggest an increased risk of kidney disease, liver disease, inflammation or infections.

R72

Uric Acid

This test checks the amount of normal waste products in the bloodstream. This is useful for diagnosing kidney stones. Decreased uric acid levels may decrease kidney function (filtration).

R86
