Blood sampling

Find a Uniprix location offering blood sampling services

To help you follow up and diagnose a wide range of illnesses, many of our sales locations have the necessary resources and materials to carry out blood tests. In fact, a certified nurse is on hand to do the testing and can then forward the results to your doctor.

Here are a few medical tests requiring the blood sample collection services available in many Uniprix-affiliated pharmacies:

  • The complete blood count (CBC), hemogram or hematologic examination is a diagnostic test performed to analyze the components of your blood. This test can detect diseases of the blood (anemia, leukemia, hemophilia, etc.), some infections, but also other pathologies, such as certain types of cancer and diabetes. 
  • A lipid profile is a group of blood tests that provides information on the amounts of fat in your blood, including cholesterol and triglycerides. Physicians sometimes ask for a lipid profile when a patient has diabetes, liver disease or is overweight.
  • The thyroid gland workup is a laboratory test that analyzes the health of the thyroid gland, including the TSH level, a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland, which is responsible for thyroid gland function. If your TSH is elevated, you suffer from hypothyroidism; if it is too low, you have hyperthyroidism.

If you have any questions about blood testing or the medical tests requiring blood collection, bring your questions to a Uniprix location offering blood testing services.
