Diagnose. Treat. Monitor.

Hormone and Fertility

Robust immunoassay testing with fertility, adrenocortical, and thyroid hormone assays greatly contribute to the accuracy and reliability of results used to diagnose, treat, and monitor patients rapidly and safely.

What is hormone testing?

Hormones are responsible for regulating and controlling a wide range of physiological processes in the body, including metabolism, growth and development, reproduction, mood, and stress response. While hormonal imbalances can lead to symptoms that affect quality of life, they can also lead to the development of significant challenges with fertility and reproductive health, adrenal gland disorders, and thyroid disorders. 

Since the cornerstone of any effective treatment depends on accurate diagnosis, quality diagnostic testing must be used to accurately test hormone levels. Immunoassay testing is commonly used to test hormones due to its ability to detect and quantify specific substances in samples accurately and efficiently. This type of testing allows healthcare providers to make informed decisions about patient care, develop appropriate treatment plans, and improve overall health and well-being.  

Additionally, hormone testing is an essential tool in the assessment and management of infertility within the context of assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Hormone tests allow healthcare providers to tailor treatment plans to each patient’s needs, leading to better outcomes and an increased likelihood of successful conception. 

Without effective strategies for hormone testing, the healthcare burden can be significant and far-reaching, impacting various aspects of patient care, health outcomes, and healthcare costs. Delayed diagnosis and misdiagnosis, ineffective treatment, health complications, increased healthcare costs, adverse effects of hormone therapies, and challenges in fertility and reproductive health all contribute to the overall healthcare burden.
