Accurate Laboratory Diagnostics

Our state-of-the-art laboratory offers reliable and precise diagnostics for your individual needs.

We can get an initial picture of your fertility based on the fertility check, which forms the basis for all treatments. If additional tests are recommended, we can carry them out in our laboratory or in collaboration with our partner laboratories.

In line with the principle of ‘as much as necessary, as little as possible’, we only test the values that make sense in your case and thus offer you targeted, individualised diagnostics.

Our Tests and Analyses

Using state-of-the-art equipment and modern diagnostics, we offer a wide range of laboratory medical services to customise your treatment to your individual needs.


Hormone Diagnostics Female

In our precise hormone diagnostics, we analyse nine important biomarkers to identify and treat hormonal imbalances in women.


Hormone Diagnostics Male

For men experiencing difficulties conceiving, we offer targeted hormone diagnostics. This involves analysing five key biomarkers to rule out or identify hormonal causes.


Infection Diagnostics

Our infection diagnostics identify antibodies against various infections that can impact your fertility.


Basic Blood Analysis

A basic blood test, also known as a small blood count, can provide indications of anemia, inflammation or infections that can impact your fertility.


Pregnancy Test

We regularly measure the hCG value (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your blood to determine and monitor the progress of your pregnancy.


Nutrient Deficiencies

Sometimes, difficulties conceiving can also be traced back to a hidden nutrient deficiency, such as iron or vitamin D.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Explore the most common questions about the Cada Laboratory in Zurich. If you have further enquiries, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us directly.

How do I prepare for a blood sample?


Typically, you do not need to prepare specifically for a blood sample. You do not need to fast on the day of the blood sample unless your doctor has told you otherwise.

How are the blood samples stored and transported to ensure quality?


After collection, blood samples are initially placed in individual sample boxes or bags. These samples are then transferred to specialised transport containers that are clearly labelled with hazard stickers, indicating potential risks of infection or other biohazards.

Most blood samples are immediately refrigerated at 2-8°C to maintain their integrity. However, some samples intended for specific tests, such as the small blood count, can be safely stored at room temperature (18-22°C) for up to 24 hours without compromising their quality.

Which hormones are analysed and why are they important for fertility?


As part of the fertility check, different hormones are analysed in men and women.

Hormones in women:

  • Estradiol
  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
  • Luteinising hormone (LH)
  • Progesterone
  • Prolactin
  • Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH)
  • Testosterone
  • Thyroid hormone TSH
  • SHBG
  • Androstenedione
  • FAI

Hormones in men:

  • Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
  • Luteinising hormone (LH)
  • Testosterone
  • Prolactin
  • Thyroid hormone TSH

An unbalanced hormonal system can result in cycle disorders, lack of ovulation, and diminished sperm quality, thereby decreasing the chances of a successful pregnancy.

When is the optimal time to take blood samples for reliable results?


While many values can be analysed on any given day, it is essential to collect the blood sample between the 3rd and 5th day of your cycle when evaluating LH, FSH, or thyroid hormones.

How long does it take until the results are available?


Typically, your blood analysis results are available within 7 days. Once you have discussed the results with your doctor, you can also conveniently access them at any time in the app.

Can I discuss the results with my doctor?


Yes, of course. When your blood sample is taken, you will arrange an appointment for an analysis consultation with your doctor. This way, we can make sure that you are fully informed about all further steps.
