Fingerstick or Venous Blood Draw?
- Highest Employee Participation
- Immediate Results
- With results available, employees can be counseled at the health screening.
- More Painful-For many individuals a finger stick is perceived as more painful than a venous blood draw collection. This is because there are more nerve endings in the finger than in the inside elbow area.
- Accuracy – Lab tests are more accurate.
- Test Measurement Range – many portable equipment is have limited ranges .Newer better equipment has become better and more accurate but there is no doubt lab test are more accurate.
- Number of Tests Supported: Portable instruments have limited test capabilities Our portable equipment supports the following test:
- Total Cholesterol
- HDL Cholesterol
- Total/HDL Cholesterol ratio
- LDL Cholesterol
- Blood Glucose
- ALT & AST — Liver enzymes
- A1C diabetes screening
Venous Blood Draw
There are some scenarios where companies prefer venous blood draw to the fingerstick method.
- Results from a laboratory are more accurate
- More testing options 1,000+ Additional Lab Tests*
- Less Employee Participation
- Basic Metabolic Testing: Includes CBC (complete blood count), blood chemistry panel (kidney, liver, electrolytes, glucose), TSH (thyroid), uric acid, urinalysis
- Lipid Panels: Basic (total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides), Advanced (SpectraCell LPP particle size panel)
- Inflammatory Panel: ESR (sed rate), hsCRP, homocysteine
- Female Panel: FSH, estradiol, testosterone
- Male Panel: PSA, total testosterone, DHEA
- Bone Health Panel: Vitamin D (25-hydroxyvitamin D),
- Thyroid Panel: T3, T4, FTI, TSH

* This is a partial list of lab testing
- Vision Testing ◦An assessment of near, far, peripheral and color vision to determine visual acuity, as well as screening for glaucoma.
- Hearing Test ◦An audiometric evaluation that provides a base line for future evidence of any hearing loss.
- DermaScan Skin Cancer Screening
- Spirometry (Lung Capacity Testing) A screening that helps to determine the presence of either obstructive or restrictive lung disease processes and to assess lung and breathing capacity. It is recommended for smokers and those who may have experienced exposure to potentially harmful materials.
- Heel Bone Density Test An ultrasound sonometer measures the heel and provides clinical information on density and structure of the bone, and can help predict fracture risk.
- Body composition scans using InBody technology provide quick, easy, and accurate measurements of body composition and regional segmental lean mass, including under, normal, and over references ranges for weight, body fat mass, lean body mass, skeletal muscle mass, BMI, and percent body fat.
