Our health is always a priority and the saying, “Prevention is better than cure,” has never rung truer than it has now.
This is why Matias H. Aznar Memorial (MHAM) Medical and Diagnostics Center has stepped up to elevate your healthcare with its affordability and accessibility.
MHAM Diagnostics will help you discover unrecognized health risks and prevent their progression to more serious conditions. They can give you an essential evaluation of your general well-being through their Laboratory, Radiology, Medical, and Dental Services.
They are a Department of Health (DOH)-accredited Secondary-Level Clinical Laboratory and has recently opened last March 2020.
They accept walk-ins and uses the latest equipment at an affordable price.
The clinic also has that friendly vibe with its soft green, clean interior and accommodating staff.
It’s never too early or too late to start taking care of our health.
COVID-19 Antibody Test
Aside from the routine and special clinical laboratory tests, MHAM Diagnostics is also a DOH-certified antibody-based COVID-19 testing laboratory with certificate no. 07-2020-013.
MHAM Diagnostics offers a very affordable Chemiluminescent Immunoassay (CLIA) antibody-based COVID-19 test, priced at only PHP 2,000.
This serologic test is designed to detect and quantify antibodies (immunoglobulins IgM and IgG) that are specific against the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes the disease called COVID-19.
RDT vs CLIA ANTIBODY-BASED COVID-19 TEST
Rapid diagnostic test (RDT) tells us the:
- Presence or absence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 (qualitative result)
- Not the amount/level of antibodies
CLIA tells us the:
- Presence or absence of IgM and IgG antibodies (qualitative result)
- Amount/level of IgM and IgG antibodies (quantitative result)
This package will save you the time and confusion as to what tests to get for a general check-up. It is composed of different laboratory tests to assess select organ system functions:
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Fasting blood sugar + lipid profile (requires 8-10 hours fasting)
- Blood uric acid
- Stool exam
