Biometric Screenings

Absolutely! We provide many screening options. You can customize your screening according to your employee group.

Generally we have a minimum order of 20 screenings per event; however, please talk with an account executive for more details.

No, we do not require employees to pre-register for their screenings. However, to cut down on wait time and to make the event smooth and successful, we highly recommend that participants sign up in advance. Our proprietary tool, Register My Time helps the company schedule appointments online.

Fasting for 9 hours or more is recommended, but not required for our finger-stick screenings. Total Cholesterol, HDL, Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio, and Glucose are accurately evaluated without fasting, but participants must fast to receive their LDL and Triglyceride values. We do require a 12 hour fast for all venipuncture blood-draw tests.
