Clinician’s Overview

Biolab is a medical laboratory specialising in nutritional and environmental Medicine, measuring micronutrient levels and other biochemical parameters related to the availability of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. We also have an extensive range of tests and profiles for assessing the effects of Twenty-First century lifestyles on our health and wellbeing.

The laboratory is staffed by a highly qualified team and participates in a number of external quality control schemes. Many of our tests require expensive instrumentation with a high level of expertise which are not routinely available at conventional hospital laboratories. We also offer routine pathology investigations and allergy tests via a carefully selected panel of specialist referral laboratories.

We do all we can to apply modern scientific laboratory analytical methods to establish what imbalances there are in the bodies of those who are suffering ill-health or non-optimum health, so that these imbalances may be addressed via nutritional and non-drug means, with the aim of achieving good health or, at least, improving the quality of life and minimising suffering.

We have a dedication to analytical excellence combined with an intrinsic awareness of the importance of holding the best interest of the patients’ well-being as the most important consideration at all times. For an introduction to Nutritional and Environmental medicine written by our Medical Director, Dr. Stephen Davies, please see: What is Nutritional and Environmental Medicine?

Copies of our literature, including our Laboratory Guide, request forms, test data sheets and sample reports are available via this web site, and on registration with Biolab we will provide access to past workshop lectures (dating back to 2000), Biolab publications and other documents of interest.

Referring Patients

Our senior laboratory staff comment on all reports with abnormal or unusual test results and you are welcome to contact us to discuss either appropriate tests for your patients or the interpretation of results. Our disease related recommended profiles (profiles) may be of assistance in selecting Biolab tests.
