We test with the best

Quality testing for precise results.

The Maas Clinic focuses not only on treating your symptoms but also looking for key insights to discover the root cause of your concerns. Whether you suffer from allergies, debilitating aches and pains or you simply want to improve your health and wellbeing, we can help.

To ensure we find the best treatment, we perform a range of diagnostic tests to find out exactly what is causing your symptoms.

Our point-of-care laboratory.

At The Maas Clinic we are proud to be in the unique position as the only Functional Medicine clinic with an in house point-of-care laboratory. Our lab is fully equipped to conduct full blood count chemistry, cholesterol and several other diagnostic tests.

The results can be available for us to analyse within the hour.

This enables us to expertly use your results to immediately inform the strategy of your treatment moving forward.

To help you better understand the process of your comprehensive functional assessment we’ve explained some of the procedures and tests below.

Clinical microscopy

  • Clinical microscopy focuses on the detailed analysis of your blood with the aid of a microscope. The microscope allows us to see your red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, certain bacteria, and fungal markers.
  • To do this we take a small drop of blood from your finger and then place it under the microscope.
  • Observing and analysing your blood in this way helps us better understand your health and dietary requirements, and gives us the valuable information we need to devise the best programme to help improve your blood quality and, in turn, your overall health.

Biochemistry and physiology

Understanding the body as a whole and how it is inter-related is an important factor of any treatment process. We use the following biochemistry and physiology tests to create a complete picture of how your body is functioning.

  • Blood chemistry panel – basic haematology to assess your liver enzymes, pancreatic, kidney and bile function, adrenal function, calcium and magnesium levels and overall hydration
  • Total cholesterol panel – checks your anabolic and catabolic tendencies, as well as revealing any fungal indicators
  • Urine-analysis/Reams testing – to detect any urinary tract infections, diabetes and kidney disorders and identify any electro-biochemical dysfunctions within your body
  • Heart rate variability –  tracking these variables to help us understand and optimise your recovery
  • Blood pressure – standing and resting
  • Body temperature
  • Weight and body fat percentage
  • Pulse rates

As well as our in house lab, we also use cutting edge international laboratories. These carefully selected laboratory partners help us delve even deeper and find the answers we need to create a bespoke programme specifically for you. We trust these partners to give us precise and specific results first time and every time.
