This test measures the free (protein unbound) component of total testosterone through a single saliva sample. Testosterone is a male sex hormone, which is used to evaluate the androgynous state of men and to diagnose polycystic ovary syndrome and breast cancer in women. It is responsible for bone and muscle strength, as well as mood, energy, and sexual function. It also has an influence on muscle mass, physical strength and bone density. Persometrics does not offer advice or medical diagnostics. Rather, the outcome of this test could be useful for you to discuss further with your medical doctor.
Note: We aim to ship your testkit within one working day. However, since the bioavailable component of Testosterone is requires a complex method to analyze correctly, saliva samples are forwarded to a larger laboratory for analysis (the Risch laboratory of Bern). For this reason, please allow for an 8 working days delay before achieving your results (after our laboratory receives your samples). We apologize for this long waiting time, but our main priority is product quality and scientific excellence.
