Here are a few pointers for your reference:
- No definite diagnosis may be made from test results alone, and test results should be correlated with your medical history and other clinical findings.
- Screening tests may carry limitations in the capacity to identify or rule out the presence or absence of a condition. Normal test results may not necessarily mean the absence of a medical condition.
- The majority (about 95%) of a normal population test results will fall within the normal range. About 5% of the normal population test results may be slightly above or below the normal level.
- It is an acceptable fact that a normal person’s test results may fluctuate at different times although still within the normal range. This occurrence may be due to diet or other factors.

Urine tests available may include urine dipstick, urine full examination and microscopic examination (UFEME) and urine micro albumin to creatinine ratio.
These tests involve the collection of a clean specimen of urine midstream. During the collection process, please collect the specimen in the bottle midway through the stream. Kindly avoid collecting the first drops of urine as they appear as this may cause the specimen to be contaminated by skin cells and affecting your results.
Kindly refrain from submitting your urine specimen when you are having your menses. It is advisable to wait till day 5 of your menstrual cycle (with day 1 being the first day of your menstrual period) for better accuracy.
The stool test tests for the presence of microscopic blood cells which may not be visible to the human eye.
When collecting the specimen, please use the spatula available in the lid of the container. A small specimen of stool is adequate for analysis. Please note that specimens should be submitted to the clinic on the same day before 3pm (for weekdays) and 11am (for weekends).
If your selected stool test is the conventional faecal blood test (non immunological), you are advised to abstain from consumption of meats 3 days before the study.
The Resting Electrocardiogram (ECG) test is conducted by our technicians to assess the electrical rhythm of your heart.
This test involves the placement of sticker electrodes on your chest as well as your limbs as you lie on the couch. This test typically takes 15 minutes.
Please wear a two-piece outfit to facilitate placement of the chest electrodes. For your comfort, ECGs are conducted only by our female technicians.
The Treadmill Stress test or Cardiac Stress test involves the monitoring of the electrical rhythm of your heart as you exercise on a treadmill. Whilst the test takes 30 to 45 minutes including preparation, the actual running time is typically less than 12 minutes.
The test is undertaken by a trained technician with a doctor within the same test premise. It is advisable that you have a light meal and abstain from caffeine prior to the test. Please wear comfortable walking/running shoes as well as a two-piece outfit. The latter is to facilitate placement of test electrodes on your chest.
Please bring a list of your current medication on the day of the study.
Ultrasound studies are a non-invasive way of evaluating soft tissues and organs as part of the health screening process.
If you are having an ultrasound examination of your abdomen, please fast for at least 6 hours. You are encouraged to drink at least 4 cups of water and avoid going to the toilet prior to ultrasound of the pelvis and/or prostate. Please come in loose comfortable attire.
The sonographer will apply a clear viscous gel to the area of examination. An average study may take up to 30 minutes.
As ultrasounds do not involve xrays, it is safe for pregnant and/or breastfeeding moms.
The Mammogram study is an evaluation of the breasts using xrays, and is recommended for ladies above 40 years of age.
Please wear a two-piece outfit and avoid the use of deodorant, lotion, perfume and talc on the day of the study. An optimum window for the test is within 2 weeks after menstruation.
The test will be conducted by our female radiographer. During the process, there will be light firm compression of your breasts which can be uncomfortable. This is unfortunately necessary for proper evaluation.
The mammogram is expected to take under 20 minutes.
Xrays involve the study of a limited body area for evaluation. Minmed uses a digital radiography solution which keeps the amount of radiation and the incidence of retakes as low as possible.
No preparation is necessary. Ladies who are pregnant or possibly pregnant are advised NOT to take X-ray tests, and must inform us before taking such tests.
When pregnant, you will typically be seeing your obstetrician regularly for follow-up and antenatal care. Screening tests necessary (e.g. screening for gestational diabetes) will typically be conducted at your O&G clinic. It is thus recommended that you do not undergo health screening with us when pregnant.
If you do wish to, you are encouraged to only evaluate your lipid profile and fasting glucose.
Certain vaccinations may not be administered when you are pregnant. Please check with our doctors for suitability via teleconsult here.
If you are breastfeeding, it is acceptable to undergo health screening. However, this should not take place in lieu of or before your post natal follow up with your obstetrician.
It is acceptable to go for health screening when you are having your menses. However, if there is a urine test component, it is recommended that you submit your urine specimen after day 5 of your menses (with day 1 being the first day of your menstrual period).
Pap smear studies should not be conducted until after day 8 of menses.
If you are feeling unwell, please postpone your health screening as it is an elective procedure.
You may email [email protected] to reschedule an appointment, whether it is at your office or at Minmed Health Screeners.
Your HR and/or Wellness committee will inform you of the upcoming health screening exercise at your office, typically in the month leading up to the onsite exercise. Please refer to the respective links for registration.

The lifestyle survey is a survey poll conducted to gather information on your health and lifestyle habits.
The responses will be collated on a de-identified manner and presented as a corporate health profile to the Wellness committee. This will allow appropriate health programmes to be considered as a follow-up to the health screening exercise.
You may refer to your HR and/or Wellness committee should you wish to understand the corporate health profile better.
On the day of screening, our mobile teams will conduct necessary set-up in a suitable space allotted to us.
