Most Common Lab Test request

  1. ABO group & RH factor-ABO test shows that people have one of four blood types: A, B, AB, or O
  2. Amylase-tests used to help diagnose gallbladder problems. Test measures the amount of this enzyme in a sample of blood. Normally, only low levels of amylase are found in the blood or urine. But if the pancreas or salivary glands become damaged or blocked, more amylase is usually released into the blood and urine
  3. Blood Lead (OSHA)-This test measures the amount of lead, which is a poisonous (toxic) metal, in the blood
  4. Ca125 test may be useful in screening for early-stage ovarian. A blood test to detect elevated levels of the protein CA125
  5. CBC-A complete blood count (CBC) gives important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells , white blood cells , and platelets. A CBC helps your health professional check any symptoms, such as weakness, fatigue, or bruising, you may have. A CBC also helps him or her diagnose conditions, such as anemia, infection, and many other disorders.
  6. CMP- Complete Metabolic Panel A blood test that measures the levels of several substances in the blood (such as electrolytes). A chemistry screen tells your doctor about your general health, helps look for certain problems, and finds out whether treatment for a specific problem is working.
  7. CRP-A C-reactive protein (CRP) test is a blood test that measures the amount of a protein called C-reactive protein in your blood. C-reactive protein measures general levels of inflammation in your body.High levels of CRP are caused by infections and many long-term diseases
  8. DHEA- Order in special circumstance not a commonly ordered test. DHEAS, testosterone, and several other androgens are used to evaluate adrenal function and to distinguish androgen-secreting conditions that are caused by the adrenal glands from those that originate in the ovaries or testes
  9. Hgb A1C-is an important blood test used to determine how well your diabetes is being controlled. Hemoglobin A1c provides an average of your blood sugar control over a six to 12 week period and is used in conjunction with home blood sugar monitoring to make adjustments in your diabetes medicines
  10. Hepatic Function Panel-A liver (hepatic) function panel is a blood test to check how well the liver is working. This test measures the blood levels of total protein, albumin, bilirubin, and liver enzymes. High or low levels may mean that liver damage or disease is present
  11. Hep B (Titer)-A titer is a blood test that determines whether you have adequate immunity to certain diseases. Titer testing for diseases such as Hepatitis
  12. Herpes -A blood test can detect HSV antibodies even when you have no symptoms of genital herpes. A false-negative result from a blood test is possible if you have been infected recently. It takes several weeks for HSV antibodies to show up in the blood.
  13. HIV-The HIV  test can detect the virus as early as 6 days after possible exposure, however our physicians recommend waiting a 3 weeks after exposure.
  14. HCG- Qualitative-simply checks to see if hCG is present. It gives a “yes” or “no” answer to the question, “Are you pregnant?” Doctors often order these tests to confirm pregnancy as early as 10 days after a missed period. However, some of these tests can detect hCG much earlier.
  15. HCG-Quantitative-measures the exact amount of hCG in your blood. It can find even very low levels of hCG. Because these pregnancy tests can measure the concentration of hCG, they may be helpful in tracking any problems during pregnancy.
  16. H-pylori, IGG -Blood antibody test. A blood test checks to see whether your body has made antibodies to H. pylori bacteria. If you have antibodies to H. pylori in your blood, it means you either are currently infected or have been infected in the past.
  17. Iron with TIBC-Amount of iron bound to transferrin in the blood (serum) and amount of iron needed to bind to all of the transferrin. This value is called the total iron-binding capacity (TIBC).
  18. Lipid Panel-There are multiple forms of cholesterol circulating in the blood. The various forms of cholesterol and other fats in the blood are together called lipids. Doctors measure and diagnose high cholesterol with a simple blood test, often called a lipid profile. It’s done after fasting for nine to 12 hours to eliminate the contribution of any fat you recently ate.”Tests for cholesterol provide results for four different types of lipids”
    1. Total cholesterol
    2. LDL (low-density lipoprotein), the “bad cholesterol”
    3. HDL (high-density lipoprotein), the “good cholesterol”
    4. Triglycerides, another form of fat in the blood
  19. RA Factor-The rheumatoid factor test is a commonly ordered test to help diagnose rheumatoid arthritis. This test       measures rheumatoid factor, which is an antibody in the blood that’s present in many people with RA. In fact, the rheumatoid factor blood test is eventually positive in 70% to 80% of people with RA, although in early arthritis the percentage may be much smaller. Rheumatoid factor may also be elevated in other autoimmune diseases besides RA
  20. MMR (titer)-A titer is a blood test that determines whether you have adequate immunity to certain diseases. Titer testing for diseases such as Measles, Mumps, Rubella  is sometimes required by schools and healthcare institutions to ensure adequate immunity.
  21. Progesterone-A progesterone test measures the amount of the hormone progesterone in a blood sample. Progesterone is a female hormone produced by the ovaries during release of a mature egg from an ovary (ovulation). Progesterone helps prepare the lining of the uterus (endometrium) to receive the egg if it becomes fertilized by a sperm. If the egg is not fertilized, progesterone levels drop and menstrual bleeding begins.  During pregnancy, the placenta also produces high levels of progesterone, starting near the end of the first trimester and continuing until the baby is born. Levels of progesterone in a pregnant woman are about 10 times higher than they are in a woman who is not pregnant.Some types of cancer cause abnormal progesterone levels in men and women.
  22. PSA-Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a substance produced by the prostate gland. Elevated PSA levels may indicate prostate cancer or a noncancerous condition such as prostatitis or an enlarged prostate.Most men have PSA levels under four (ng/mL) and this has traditionally been used as the cutoff for concern about risk of prostate cancer. Men with prostate cancer often have PSA levels higher than four, although cancer is a possibility at any PSA level. According to published reports, men who have a prostate gland that feels normal on examination and a PSA less than four have a 15% chance of having prostate cancer. Those with a PSA between four and 10 have a 25% chance of having prostate cancer and if the PSA is higher than 10, the risk increases to 67%.
  23. PT/INR-Prothrombin time (PT) is a blood test that measures how long it takes blood to clot. A prothrombin time test can be used to check for bleeding problems. PT is also used to check whether medicine to prevent blood clots is working. A PT test may also be called an INR test. INR (international normalized ratio) stands for a way of standardizing the results of prothrombin time tests, no matter the testing method.
  24. TSH-A thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) blood test is used to check for thyroid gland problems. TSH is produced when the hypothalamus releases a substance called thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH). TRH then triggers the pituitary gland to release TSH. Testosterone -A testosterone test checks the level of this male hormone (androgen) in the blood. Testosterone affects sexual features and development. In men, it is made in large amounts by the testicles. In both men and women, testosterone is made in small amounts by the adrenal glands; and, in women, by the ovaries.
  25. Varicella Titer-(Chickenpox)A titer is a blood test that determines whether you have adequate immunity to certain diseases. Titer testing for diseases such as Varicella(ChickenPox)  is sometimes required by schools and healthcare institutions to ensure adequate immunity.
  26. Vitamin B-12- A test measures the amount of vitamin B12 in the blood. The body needs this B vitamin to make blood cells and to maintain a healthy nervous system. Vitamin B12 is found in animal products such as meat, shellfish, milk, cheese, and eggs. Most people who eat animal products are not likely to develop vitamin B12 deficiency anemia unless their bodies cannot absorb it from food. Strict vegetarians (vegans) who do not eat animal products and babies of mothers who are strict vegetarians are at increased risk for developing anemia and should take a supplement containing vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is stored in the liver for a year or more, which reduces a person’s risk of anemia. Vitamin B12 is usually measured at the same time as a folic acid test, because a lack of either one can lead to a form of anemia called megaloblastic anemia. Lack of vitamin B12 also affects the nervous system.
