Rock Solid Science
Just because these tests are collected at home and often require a much smaller sample than brick-and-mortar labs, they still provide accurate, informative results.
We only work with certified, top quality labs
Each partner lab we choose to work with is CLIA certified (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments). This means they have to meet high standards to obtain both state and federal certifications and submit themselves to regular inspections.
We use well-established and effective at-home collection methods
As you will see with all our kits, the collection methods are easy-to-do at home. Some use blood cards to collect small amounts (spots) of blood. Others require saliva, dried urine, or dried breast milk.
We only offer tests that meet rigorous standards for reliability and validity for at-home collection.
More is not necessarily more
It is a misunderstanding that labs need many vials of blood from people to run one or more tests. Many tests can be done with less blood, but the existing blood draw systems allow for collecting more blood than is needed, so laboratories have no reason to collect less. In general, little blood is needed to run common laboratory tests.
Expertly Curated Tests and Biomarkers
Our medical staff curates the biomarkers we think are the most interesting and applicable to the health insights you care about.
What is a Biomarker?
Biomarker is actually “biological marker” and it refers to a wide variety of organic substances, such as a metabolite, that can be measured in individuals to explain a certain set of symptoms or biological process. For example, total Cholesterol, Testosterone, Cortisol are all biomarkers.
Why were these specific markers chosen?
These biomarker results are meant to help the customer understand their own health and well-being. We want the customer to have the option to make certain dietary or lifestyle changes without further medical intervention if they so choose. However, we always encourage sharing your EverlyWell results with your healthcare provider. Our tests provide personalized information and education; they are not intended to diagnose any disease or condition or to substitute for professional medical advice or treatment. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions you have regarding your medical care.
Are these the same markers my doctor would choose?
Many biomarkers tested at EverlyWell are available to customers through their medical providers.
Our Chief Medical Officer is a practicing physician. These are reasons why she loves EverlyWell testing and would recommend it to her patients.
More actionable appointments
Patients can have testing they want at their convenience and be more involved and educated with their own health.
Each test is approved by a board-certified physician
The fact that each EverlyWell test purchased is approved by an independent board-certified physician ensures there are safeguards in place to prevent someone from getting a test that’s not appropriate for them.
Tests are processed by established commercial labs
EverlyWell’s partner labs are some of the same commercial labs used by hospitals and physicians around the U.S., and they maintain the same standard of excellence as hospital labs.
