Take a Look | Pathlab's New Aug Promo on Blood Test: PATHLAB National Health Check Up

Hey guys! I've been wanting to do a blood test and Pathlab seems to have a great deal with their packages. I've been eyeing on it but I haven't found the motivation to go.. up until recently. I saw the new promotion going on, it's called the PATHLAB National Health Check Up, and went to check on it, apparently it's only for a short period of time.

I went to the Puchong branch and queued at 7:50am. When they opened at 8am, everyone went in to get a form with the queue numbers attached. I was No.19. All we needed to do was to fill up our details (excluding address) and sign the consent section at the bottom before handing the papers back. At 8:40am, I was briefed about which package to get, paid on the spot, given a bottle to store urine and right after getting out of the washroom, I was immediately called for blood extraction. After that, I walked to the counter, collected my receipt and left the place. 

The washroom was okay (although it was obvious of what it is on the floor when it's sorta wet) and the blood extraction was painless and quick. Kudos to the team for completing the whole process so quickly (excluding the waiting time, that one is inevitable). Their actions are really fast, including their speed of speaking and explaining. PayWave is available too. I asked Pathlab on Facebook through PM for approximate days I needed to wait for the report and the responder said it takes about 5 days. But apparently y report is ready on the 29th August 2018 (10 days after test)

So, let me explain a little bit with the packages here. They have one that's been running the entire year (aka the one that I've been eyeing for half a year already). The photos below are the packages (pricing changed and adjusted due to deduction of GST). Both of these are the same, called General Health Screen package. The only difference is that the second one (green flyer) has additional cancer markers included.

So the new campaign that's going on right now is as per below:
- Basic Health Screening (27 tests) @ RM47 nett (RSP: RM120)
- General Health Screening (53 tests) @ RM94 nett (RSP: RM220)
- Additional 5 tag-on tests @ RM94 nett (RSP: RM150)

"So... What's the difference?"
The difference is that, one has 3 extra additional tags with just RM11 extra. You can refer to the picture that I've prepared below. Comparison is made with the same main package (53 tests without additional tags, a.k.a. General Health Screen I). At normal promotion is priced at RM130 whereas in the new campaign it is priced at RM 94. The pricing after adding tags has a RM11 difference. For the normal promotion (General Health Screen II), you can only pick 2 additional tags out of 5 choices whereas the new campaign allows you to pick 5 additional tags out of 12 choices.

Additional Tag-On Tests:

1. CRP - Heart Disease Risk Factor
2. CA125 - Screening for Ovarian Cancer (Female only)
3. CA15.3 - Screening for Breast Cancer (Female only)
4. CA19.9 - Screening for Gastrointestinal Cancer
5. PSA - Screening for Prostate Cancer (Male only)
6. CEA - Screening for Colorectal Cancer
7. HAVG - Hepatitis A Antibody Screen
8. HIV - Screening for AIDS
9. HPYL - Screening for Helicobacter Pylori Infection
10. UMALB - Screening for Kidney Damage Indicator
11. APO A - Heart Risk Indicator
12. APO B - Heart Risk Indicator

PATHLAB National Health Check Up runs the entire month but on a weekly basis between Thursdays and Sundays. Each campaign has different numbers of participating branches. The first week of August has 6 participating branches, the second week has 12 participating branches and the current week has 33 participating branches.

The second round just ended and the third round starts this Thursday to Sunday. So if you want to get a blood test, do grab a chance to secure a seat by booking through their Facebook page via commenting "I’ll visit Pathlab (venue) on (date) for (?) person." Once they've confirmed your booking, remember to screenshot as you'll need to provide prove of booking upon registration at the counter.

Do get yourself a health checkup regularly because it's important to know how your body is functioning. Many illness are pretty invisible at earlier stages and most people only find out that they are ill at near-terminally-ill stage. So, don't let that happen to you! You may still have so much you've haven't done in your life! Besides, just as what Pathlab says, "A Healthy Individual is a Productive Nation! 👉" Get a blood test at your nearest Pathlab branch now!
