Derby Based NeoVos launches the first of its kind B12 test

NeoVos part of SureScreen Scientifics for Health are delighted to announce the launch the first of its kind B12 test 

The affordable, cutting-edge, at-home gut and nutrition testing lab, is set to launch a B12 test, this week. This is the first affordable test on the market to analyse MMA through an easy-to-use urine test.

Methylmalonic acid (MMA) is regarded as the most useful and sensitive biomarker for measuring vitamin B12. However, until now, tests already available have always been either too expensive or require a venous blood draw. Whilst Total B12 and Active B12 can also be used to measure the abundance of vitamin B12 in your body, they do not measure how well B12 is utilised by cells. The NeoVos B12 test is a urine sampleso super easy to collect at home.B12 deficiencies vary. However, it is evident that this is a common issue globally and is impacted by many factors, including age, genetics, diet and other absorption issues. This hidden condition may be affecting the quality of life of many people without them knowing it's linked to a vitamin B12 deficiency because consuming sufficient vitamin B12 is not always enough to ensure sufficient levels due to a multitude of B12 absorption issues. According to the NHS, a B12 deficiency can cause low mood, fatigue, headaches, indigestion and more. Our bodies can't naturally produce B12, so we must include sources of B12 from foods and drinks or take supplements.

Troy Whyte, Founder and MD, comments

“Our goal is to help people live their healthiest and happiest lives. Up to 40% of people in the UK have low vitamin B12 levels (1047) which could make them feel tired with no energy, gut issues, difficulty concentrating and recurring headaches. Interestingly, if you have these symptoms but have adequate B12 levels then increasing your B12 levels further will have no benefit and won't reduce your symptoms. This is why we have worked hard to develop a sensitive, affordable and easy to collect test (urine sample) so that people can see if they will benefit from supplementation or injections. Test, don't guess!"

The NeoVos B12 test is a quick and easy way for individuals to understand if they need to review their diet or supplements. This reasonably priced at-home kit is easy to use, completing a simple urine sample. It is then quickly analysed using cutting-edge technology by our UK lab and results are provided through an online portal with downloaded reports which include actionable recommendations. This test is £70 RRP and is available from
Our current NeoVos tests include

The Gut Tests

  • The Functional Gut Test measures the short-chain fatty acids vital for gut and mental health.
  • The Compositional Gut Test targets finding which bacteria need a boost to support gut health and overall health.
  • The Advanced Gut Test combines biomarkers to determine what bacteria you have and how well they perform.

The Nutritional Tests

  • The Vitamin D Test identifies the vitamin D levels in your body by collecting just five drops of blood onto a blood card. It provides you with results and personalised recommendations on how to boost your levels.
  • The Omega 3 Test measures your fatty acids, the building blocks of all cells in your brain and body, with results representative of your levels over the last 120 days. This comprehensive test provides your omega-3 index, omega 6:3 ratio and AA: EPA ratio. If you are pregnant or looking to start a family, your report also provides your DHA %, which is particularly important now. The test summarises the most effective ways to optimise your levels.
  • The B12 Test identifies the level of MMA in your body to determine if you are deficient in B12. This test uses a urine sample to help establish your levels. If it's identified in your urine, then it can be a clear sign of a B12 deficiency.

Health markers are analysed in the laboratory using analytical chemistry. Reports are insightful and easy to follow, with tips on where you need to focus on improving your health. Results can also be shared with your healthcare
