No. Tests can only be ordered directly from the lab test providers. Fantestico identifies and compares tests to make this process easier for you.
Fantestico identifies tests that can be ordered directly online. Most tests can be purchased without a doctor's visit. Check your chosen lab test provider’s website to confirm their specific ordering policies.
Many lab test providers allow tests to be paid for using HSA/FSA. Please check HSA/FSA policies directly with your chosen provider.
In addition to narrowing down your search using the filtering checkboxes on the left panel, you can conduct advanced searches using the search bar itself. Specifically, you can determine which features to exclude or include from your search by adding a "-" or a "+" before the feature you want to specify.
For example, in a search for a food allergies test, if you do not want to include lab tests for food sensitivity, you can write: allergy -sensitivity in the search bar. In other words, searching the term "allergy" results in all available tests on Fantestico that measure allergy, but some of these tests might also measure sensitivity. To avoid viewing tests that measure both allergy AND sensitivity, you would need to subtract sensitivity by using the "-" sign before the term you want to exclude. Please note, use the "-" sign without a space before the words you wish to exclude, and without quotations marks (" ") (e.g. allergy -sensitivity, not "allergy - sensitivity"). Similarly, you can make an advanced search by using the sign "+" to combine features. For example, when searching for a diabetes test, you can search for "A1C +fasting glucose" (again, without the quotations marks, e.g. A1C +fasting glucose), which would result in tests that measure both A1C AND fasting glucose.
