NEW Test Launched – T3006 Secretor Status (salivary)
See the new ‘Secretor Status test’ here, (AUD$75.00 total cost) and some information on it can be viewed here in What is Secretor Status? Note this test is not being marketed as life saving by any means. It is in a sense frontier medicine, with only scant information known to be proven by science. To know if you are a secretor or not, may be no more rewarding than the satisfaction of curiosity. If you know more about this particular ‘area’ of medicine, please get in touch, we’d like to hear of your experience and/or expertise.
Tracker-T is a personal, cloud-hosted, Testo-levels Tracking Chart. Not only will ‘Tracker-T’ be FREE to ANYONE who buys the Testosterone Test Kit – It’s also being painstakingly retro-fitted to everyone who bought one in the last two years!
Introducing PayPal Pay In 4™ @TestoChecker
Starting today, PayPal Pay In 4™ is available at TestoChecker Hormone test Kits. This split payment option is no different to AfterPay™, like them or not, these next generation payment apps are here to stay. PayPal’s new split payment app, Pay In 4™, boasts of “no interest and no late fees”. However, we believe Australian adults understand the not so loudly trumpeted flipside, the potential for human error, and the consequential costs associated with late payments.
Whilst we accept that the modern 4-way split payment method is here to stay, we advise exercising caution when it comes to credit.
Happy to announce another hormone test has passed our suitability threshold and added to the range we offer. The test is large, involving the collection of a saliva samples on 11 of the 28 days [of the cycle]. The end result is worth the effort as a very detailed map showing the output and timing (ovulation) of these fertility hormones for all three stages of the menstrual cycle. See the test description by clicking on the link above for more detail.
A little more on ‘adding new tests to our range’:
Assessing a potential new addition to our catalogue of hormnone tests involves an important and certainly basic, self explanatory formula – Value + Benefit = X. The test must have a long history allowing for the assessment of it’s quality via practitioner feedback, patient testimonial, clinical study and or peer review. The days of adding new tests without having performed proper diligence are long gone, as far back as 2018 when the number of hormnone test kit configurations was slashed, and the Design Your Own Hormone Test Kit tool successfully launched. Guy Saywell, General Manager, TestoChecker Online.
As we near the end of a very difficult year we hold our heads high knowing Australian’s can, and do come together in the face of adversity. Throughout 2020, our ability to adapt to change and get on with it was demonstrated as we fought back against the 2019coronavirus spread.
Whilst it doesn’t appear to be over by a long shot, I am hopeful we have seen the worst and anticipate genuine vaccines to ‘hit the shelves’ in 2021.

More accurately put, this is a variant of an existing sleep hormone test (Melatonin Sleep Rhythm Test) which we believe has real value. The new Sleep Rhythm [V2] Dual Hormone Profile Test Kit requires a single saliva collection only and measures Two Hormones which directly affect sleep quality. This test may be used to detect sleep hormone irregularity sometimes associated with chronic sleep disruption. It is not designed to be used a diagnostic ‘tool’, but can be a useful tool when part of a larger ‘tool box’.
Genetic Testing is HERE – We have waited some time to write this after what has been a turbulent year. So to finally launch the My Comprehensive DNA Profile is exciting, and a relief. More information about the test, such as the test Sample Report .PDF are provided so you can make an informed decision. Reasonable intelligence level required for interpretation. Consulting others with regards to dietary planning is always wise regardless.

‘The Blueberries and The Benefits’. Going forward, we hope to provide further valuable, fact checked information related to healthy living and balanced nutrition. And not just about hormones and hormone testing.
Did you know there are approximately 50 hormones doing their jobs right now in your body. And only 9 can be tested with accuracy using saliva?
NEW informative post outlining the limitations of both serum and saliva for testing hormones. Knowing some basics allows for you to make a confident, informed choice when the time comes to testing.
Back up and running ! Website down for a record 22 hours !! And it felt like 22 days to us.Website is once again functioning, with all but a slight lag in page load time to show for it.
Otherwise all systems go, with laboratory test time AND Auspost’ delivery time both at full speed.
AusPost Delivery Time – HOORAY! This is welcome news. Hormone test kit delivery time has improved greatly over the last 7 days and appears to be returning to ‘Normal’. We take back everything we said about AusPost and congratulate them on their critical work.
Postal Delivery Lag Time update 🙂
Too early to be complacent however our latest observations indicate we may have seen the worst of the current Australia Post back-log fiasco. Delivery time is measured daily from all States and Territories, and at the last look we had 2 day delivery time recordings from both South Australia and New South Wales which is up 155% on this time last week. Queensland was a little slower, at 3.5 day average. We will continue to monitor Post Delivery Lag Time, as the rapid delivery of our Five Star hormone test kits is indeed part of the commitment we make to you. Important: At no time during this period has a saliva sample under our watch failed the laboratories Viscosity Test, which is performed as standard on all saliva samples upon arrival at the lab for hormone testing.
TestoChecker Staff Responsibility
If at any stage TestoChecker HTK became aware of any staff displaying symptoms, it must be reported. Fortunately, we don’t anticipate that occurring but stay vigilant nonetheless. We hope you also continue to do your part to keep our community COVID Safe.
Test Kits Now Sent 7 Days a Week !!
The postal system has had a hard time lately and TestoChecker has responded. From now on we are processing orders and dispatching hormone test kits 7 (that’s right) days a week. It won’t fix the Postal Service but it will help get the test kit to you faster. TestoChecker are sending more kits every month, and we believe that this increase to the test kit dispatch schedule will have a favourable impact.
Androstenedione testing is here !
Important androgen precursor hormone added to TestoChecker online digital store.
Having wished for the ability to provide Androstenedione testing for some time now, we are excited to finally add it to the selection. Regrettably, testing costs for this hormone are substantially more, and this is due to the required materials used (reagents) being themselves more expensive to obtain.
Big News: Residents of all States and Territories now have access to Contact Free Hormone Testing
Exciting New Tests – Same 5 Star Service!
Since 2016 we have consistently delivered on our commitment to provide access to laboratory hormone testing in Australia. Our ratings on Google, Facebook and Product Review attest to that.
During 2020, TestoChecker® will unveil a new range of self-administered tests, which have been selected using strict suitability criteria. We believe practitioners and clients alike will find the new range of test options particularly useful.
- Food Intolerance tests – Including general, vegetarian, Asian food. (Blood Spot)
- Vitamin D (Blood Spot)
- Gut Health profile (Stool)
- Heavy Metals Test (
Due to having made the informed decision to begin adding other specimen types, i.e. urine, hair and finger prick and blood swab to our store, we are now able to provide a greater range of laboratory tests with practical applications.
TestoChecker will continue to provide its regarded Hormone Test Kit Service, and by expanding our portfolio of practical testing kits, we hope to reach and help even more Australian’s going forward.
