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

What is a Walk-In Lab Test?

A Walk-In Lab Test, is any test that comes from our boutique lab. These tests are ‘pathology’ lab tests which means that we take a little of your blood, urine, or stools and analyse them. If you’re sick or looking to take control of your health, many of the decisions about your care will be based on the results of your blood and pathology tests.

Unlike other pathology labs in South Africa, we do not require a referral. This means that you are able to just ‘walk-in’ to our boutique lab and get tested, and afterwards you will own your results.

You will be able to pick and choose the tests that you want and get exactly what you need.

But to make it easier for those of us who want a little more guidance on which tests to get, we have put together expert packages which focus in on the important issues we all want information on (Click on the button below to see all our packages).

But please note that these packages are just a guide, you can take any tests off the packages or add anything you would like on. Just speak to our team when you come in for your test, and we will be happy to build a custom package just for you!

We, cannot help you understand what your results mean in detail. But we are able to make a referral to excellent doctors in our communities that can help you utilize the information our results give you to take full control of your health.

What is the Walk-In Lab procedure?

Epicentre’s Walk-In Lab is a boutique laboratory experience, which means that at every step of your testing journey, you will be dealing with a real person.

To book a test/package, just WhatsApp us or book online on our shop. You are also welcome to just come in without an appointment when it is convenient for you.

To get a test, you will need to then come down to our Walk-In Lab. And speak to our team to discuss what package will be best for you.

You will then be asked to fill out a lab form.

If you need to have your blood taken, our nurse will very genitally take a small about of blood. Whilst the test will be over quickly, we will do our best to make you feel calm and safe during the entire process.

You will then be sent your results within 48 to 72hrs.
