Comprehensive Health Solutions With Ichor Blood Services

Ichor Blood Services is a specimen collection service that originated in Calgary, AB, that is now expanding across Canada with multiple services. This collection service allows users to monitor their health through various blood and specimen tests. Right now, public health care is over-exhausted due to COVID cases, extending wait times for sample collection and testing, but using a private specimen collection service and private labs gives you the freedom to have fast and accurate testing without the wait. Through Ichor Blood’s various services, multiple forms of COVID testing are available as well as other tests for monitoring general health and specific conditions. Don’t be in the dark about your own health; get tested and take proactive steps to keep yourself healthy for longer.
