Our service to the public

The UK’s original vitamin D public testing laboratory, providing a public service since 2011. We are also one of the largest NHS vitamin D testing labs. Our Vitamin D test pack includes everything required to take a sample and send it back to us. Our vitamin D testing service is used by the public and researchers studying Vitamin D around the world.

How it works….

Results are compared to NHS Vitamin D reference intervals used to interpret if you have enough vitamin D. Results come with a clear interpretation. You can show our results to your pharmacist or nutritionist who can advise on any vitamin D supplements that may be required.
