What is Hemoglobin (HB) test?

Haemoglobin is a protein in the red blood cells that carries oxygen to the body's organs and tissues and transports carbon dioxide from organs and tissues back to the lungs.

Why get the Hemoglobin (HB) test?

The hemoglobin test may be ordered with a hematocrit or as a component of a Complete Blood Count (CBC), which may be ordered as part of a general health screening. This test can help diagnose anemia (signs: weakness and fatigue) and polycythemia (signs: dizziness and headache). It would also be regularly ordered to monitor these conditions or evaluate the response to treatment.

What our customers say about us


 I normally have an issue with my veins as they are very thin but the technician was experienced and the sample came out in one shot at the first attempt, which really reassured me.

The pickup was done extremely nicely. Got a message when the person started , no calls for directions and most of all extremely polite representative.
