This feature allows you to receive the necessary tests you need without the inconvenience of visiting a doctor. Streamline your health journey with our blood test service in the Netherlands.
To get started, simply log in to the Healsens application and follow the instructions to place your order. Our comprehensive set of laboratory tests, including blood tests, are available to residents of Amsterdam, Utrecht, Arnhem, and other cities across the Netherlands. You can choose our Healsens Checkup Plan, which assesses the health of your vital organs, inflammation markers, heart disease risk, fat metabolism, diabetes risk, anemia risk, and potential deficiencies in vitamin D3 and B12.

How to Order Blood Tests in the Netherlands?
To order blood tests online in the Netherlands, you’ll need to download the Healsens mobile app and create an account by registering within the app.
Once you’ve logged in, you can choose from their range of test packages, including the comprehensive Healsens Checkup Plan which screens for the most common age-related diseases, or the DNAm PhenoAge calculator for assessing your biological age.
After selecting your desired test package, you’ll need to provide some basic information such as your name, address, and contact details. You’ll also need to pay for the tests using a credit or debit card. Once your order is confirmed, you’ll receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to prepare for your test, such as any necessary fasting requirements.
You’ll then receive a tailor-made test kit from one of Healsens’ partners by post at your home address. The test tubes will be provided with a barcode linked to your research, and they will be specially prepared with liquid for shipping. It is important to check all your data to ensure it is correct.
In the confirmation email, you’ll be able to choose a nearby blood test center where you can have a blood sample taken. You’ll need to book an appointment and bring your referral letter, test kit, and ID to the center. The blood will be taken by professionals, and you should have all the tubes in your test kit filled.
Once you’ve had your blood sample taken, you’ll need to send the test kit back to the lab using the pre-paid packaging provided. Simply post the collection material with the lab form as a letter, not registered or with a track & trace code. Medical mail is very well organized by postal services in the Netherlands, and you can be assured that your samples will be delivered safely to the laboratory.
You’ll receive the results of your lab tests by email within a few days up to a maximum of 10 working days. No one else will receive your results unless you give written permission. You’ll be called first for results that require immediate medical follow-up.
You can use your lab test results to improve your health by getting advice on nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle changes. Healsens works together with various health coaches, specialists, and therapists who provide complementary care. The Healsens app provides access to personalized health plans, coaching, and support to help you achieve your health goals.
Other Updated v. 1.5
In addition to the online test ordering feature, we’ve also made other improvements to the application. We’ve reordered the tabs to make it easier and faster for you to find what you’re looking for. With the new tab layout, you can quickly navigate to the section you need without having to search around. We’ve also added an error handler to the risk calculator that checks for mistakes made during the manual entry of lab test results. This feature helps ensure the accuracy of your risk profile by identifying and flagging any errors in the data entered, so you can correct them and make informed decisions about your health based on reliable information. Additionally, we’ve addressed some of the visual defects that users were experiencing, ensuring that the application looks and performs as intended.
At Healsens, we’re committed to providing our users with the best possible experience and helping them take control of their health. We hope that these new features and improvements enhance your experience with our application. If you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our support team. Thank you for choosing Healsens as your trusted health partner.
