HK BioTek Technology Competence

•  Sample will be sent to ZRT Laboratory in the United States for analysis, which is the only specialty hormone laboratory to have qualified for the CDC’s Hormone Standardization Program (HoSt).

•  All hormone test are analysed with reference ranges for individual patient ages, menstrual status, and hormone supplementation.

•  ZRT is the only laboratory to perform an extraction process for saliva testing, which separates hormones from background contamination. This ensures accurate test results for low-concentration hormones
