Folacare is a private medical company which offers more than 1,250 laboratory tests, diagnostics services, instrumental and computer diagnostics which help you and your doctor take care of your health throughout your life.
You don't need to visit your GP to get a blood test. You can make an appointment online/via phone/pop in to our clinic. Your results will then be delivered the same day* securely via online or our mobile application.
Where are we located?
Do I need to stop taking my supplements or medications before the test?
No, you should not discontinue any of your current medications or supplements. Instead make sure to include your medication and supplement history in any questionnaires that may be included at Folacare clinic. If you have questions about a specific medication, please email email@example.com and we’ll gladly answer any questions.
Is the Food Sensitivity test suitable for children?
At this time, we do not currently offer testing to minors because we aren’t able to irrefutably validate the guardianship of that minor. Folacare and our Doctor’s Network take these matters very seriously and as a result, we cannot offer our testing for anyone under the age of 18.
How long does the testing process take?
Once your blood sample is taken, your sample package will be securely couriered to our laboratory within 1-8 hours on business days or with 24-48 if samples taken on weekends. Once your sample reaches the lab, your results may be available online that day* and definitely within one/two business day.
How accurate are my results?
Folacare partners with some of the most prominent INAB-certified labs in the country that conduct specialty testing. These labs perform regular quality assurance testing and are the same labs many doctors, GPs and HSE hospitals use to perform their testing. If you want to find out more about their validation processes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is cut off age for taking blood sample?
You must be at least 16 years of age and under 75 years to give a blood sample.
* For blood samples taken before 12:00AM
