Our Ultimate check is a full blood test that analyses over 50 key biomarkers. It is the ideal profile for anyone who wants to gain an in-depth understanding of their biomarkers across a wide range of areas. Areas covered include; heart health, liver & kidney function, thyroid health, hormones, risk of type 2 diabetes, cholesterol levels, key nutrients, stress and full blood count.
This test requires a trained health professional to collect your sample at home which we can arrange for you.
Ultimate is designed to be a full-body blood test and give you a deeper understanding of your overall health, allowing you to proactively take control of your wellbeing.
“This is a full and wide-ranging test which provides an in-depth health assessment. It checks for conditions and diseases such as under or overactive thyroid, autoimmune conditions, heart disease, liver disease and diabetes.
It includes a full blood count assessment, checking how well your immune system is working and hormones to identify if you have any hormone imbalances, which can cause a variety of symptoms.
It also assesses your levels of essential nutrients that you can only obtain through diet. Deficiencies in these key nutrients can have wide-ranging impacts on your body. For example, low iron levels can cause anaemia and pernicious anaemia, which is an autoimmune condition that affects your stomach, is the most common cause of vitamin B12 deficiency.”

A phlebotomy test is one that requires the blood to be drawn from the vein by a trained healthcare professional rather than a finger prick blood test.
No. Once you’ve purchased your test, we will contact you to arrange a time for a nurse to visit you at a convenient location e.g. your home.
Yes, we will send a phlebotomy kit to you for you to give to the nurse to collect your sample at a convenient time and at a convenient address.
As this is our most in-depth test there are a few markers which need to be analysed at specialist labs. This means you will need to allow us 10 working days for your results to become available on your dashboard.
This test analyses a whole range of biomarkers and a larger blood sample is required that would not be possible to gain via a finger prick blood test.
The nurse will take the kit that has been delivered to you and will use it to draw blood from your vein, in the same way as blood tests are carried out at your GP surgery. The nurse will give you the tubes of blood to post back to Forth using the pre-paid envelope.
The blood collection kit will contain everything needed to collect and return your blood sample, including tubes, syringes, a lab request form and return envelope.
The major difference between the Ultimate and Vitality tests is the analysis of more in depth nutrient biomarkers. These includes omega 6:3, vitamin E and vitamin A .
