SUPER CHEM 36 (CMP) – is a set of seven or eight blood chemical tests. Values can be used to assess and monitor a patient’s fluid and electrolyte status, kidney function, blood sugar levels, and response to various medications and other medical therapies. It is also frequently employed as a screening tool to look for problems that might need to be addressed, as many disease processes can cause a derangement in the blood serum levels of basic metabolites.
PLAC TEST for Lp-LpA2 – (Lipoprotein Associated Phospholipase A2) identifies hidden risk factors for Heart Attack and Stroke.
GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST – test in which glucose is given and blood samples taken afterward to determine how quickly it is cleared from the blood. The test is usually used to test for diabetes, insulin resistance, and sometimes reactive hypoglycemia and acromegaly, or rarer disorders of carbohydrate metabolism.
AFP TRIPLE & QUAD SCREEN – checks the level of Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) in a pregnant woman’s blood. AFP is a substance made in the liver of a fetus. The amount of AFP in the blood of a pregnant woman can help see whether the baby may have such problems as spinal bifida and anencephaly. An AFP test can also be done as part of a screening test to find other chromosomal problems, such as Down syndrome or Edward’s syndrome.
CA 125 – measures the amount of the protein CA 125 (cancer antigen 125) in your blood.
CBC (Complete Blood Count/Whole Blood) – used to evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders, including anemia, infection and leukemia.
CEA (Carcinoembryonic Antigen) – measures the amount of this protein that may appear in the blood of some people who have certain kinds of cancers, especially large intestine (colon and rectal) cancer. CEA is normally produced during the development of a fetus. The production of CEA stops before birth and it usually is not present in the blood of healthy adults.
CORTISOL – measures the level of the hormone cortisol in the blood. The cortisol level may show problems with the adrenal glands or pituitary gland. Cortisol is made by the adrenal glands. Cortisol levels go up when the pituitary gland releases another hormone called adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). Cortisol has many functions. It helps the body use sugar (glucose) and fat for energy (metabolism), and it helps the body manage stress.
CPK (Creatinine Phosphokinase/Creatinine Kinase) – measures the different forms of creatinine phosphokinase (CPK) in the blood. CPK is an enzyme found mainly in the heart, brain, and skeletal muscle.
CRP (C-Reactive Protein) – measures the concentration in blood serum of a special type of protein produced in the liver that is present during episodes of acute inflammation or infection. In the body, CRP plays the important role of interacting with the complement system, an immunologic defense mechanism. There is also a high sensitivity CRP test (hs-CRP) in addition to the regular CRP test. The hs-CRP measures very low amounts of CRP in the blood and is typically used to assess risk for heart problems.
DHEA-SULFATE- measures the amount of DHEA-sulfate in the blood. DEA-sulfate is a weak male hormone (androgen) produced by the adrenal gland in both men and women.
DILANTIN (PHENYTOIN) LEVEL- measure and monitor the amount of phenytoin in the blood and to determine whether drug concentrations are in the therapeutic range. It may be ordered every few days when a person first begins taking phenytoin to help adjust the dose to the desired blood levels. The test is then ordered at regular intervals and as needed to monitor blood concentrations. One or more phenytoin tests may be ordered if a person starts or stops taking additional medications (to judge their effect, if any, on phenytoin levels) and may be ordered if the person has a seizure or if a doctor suspects toxicity.
ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) – an easy, inexpensive, nonspecific test that has been used for many years to help detect conditions associated with acute and chronic inflammation, including infections, cancers, and autoimmune diseases. ESR is said to be nonspecific because increased results do not tell the doctor exactly where the inflammation is in the body or what is causing it, and also because it can be affected by other conditions besides inflammation.
ESTRADIOL – An estradiol test measures the amount of a hormone called estradiol in the blood. Estradiol is the most important form of estrogen found in the body. Most of it is made in and released from the ovaries, adrenal cortex, and the placenta, which forms during pregnancy to feed a developing baby. Estradiol is responsible for the growth of the female uterus, Fallopian tubes, and vagina. It promotes breast development and the growth of the outer genitals. The hormone plays a role in the distribution of body fat in women and stops the process of growing taller.
FERRITIN – The ferritin test is ordered to assess a person’s iron stores in the body. The test is sometimes ordered along with an iron test and a TIBC to detect the presence and evaluate the severity of an iron deficiency or overload.
FOLATE (Folic Acid) – A folic acid test measures the amount of folic acid in the blood. Folic acid is one of many B vitamins. The body needs folic acid to make red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), platelets, and for normal growth. Folic Acid also is important for the normal development of a baby.
FSH (Follicle-stimulating hormone) – FSH levels are used to help determine the reason a man has a low sperm count. FSH levels are also useful in the investigation of menstrual irregularities and to aid in the diagnosis of pituitary disorders or diseases involving the ovaries or testes. In children, FSH and LH are used to diagnose delayed or precocious (early) puberty.
GLUCOSE FASTING – The blood glucose test is ordered to measure the amount of glucose in the blood right at the time of sample collection. It is used to detect both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, to help diagnose diabetes, and to monitor glucose levels in persons with diabetes.
H. Pylori IgG/IgM/IgA Abs – This test is used to diagnose infection due to Helicobacter pylori. A positive test for H. pylori indicates that your gastrointestinal pain may be caused by due to a peptic ulcer this bacterium. Taking antibiotics will kill the bacteria and may stop the pain and the ulceration.
HCG/Pregnancy Qualitative & Quantitative – Qualitative is routinely used to confirm pregnancy. Quantitative measures the actual amount of hCG present in the blood. It may be ordered to help diagnose an ectopic pregnancy, to help diagnose and monitor a pregnancy that may be falling, and or to monitor a woman after a miscarriage.
Hemoglobin & Hematocrit – Hematocrit measures the amount of red blood cells that are in blood. Hemoglobin is a protein-iron compound in the blood that carries oxygen from the lungs to all cells.
Insulin – helps diagnose insulinomas and helps diagnose the cause of documented acute or chronic hypoglycemia. Insulin and C-peptide levels may also be used to monitor the amount of endogenous insulin produced by the beta cells, to check for insulin resistance, and to help determine when a type 2 diabetic might need to start taking insulin to supplement oral medications.
IGF-1 (Somatomedin C) – measured to help diagnose the cause of growth abnormalities, evaluate pituitary function, and monitor treatment of GH deficiencies and excesses.
Lead, Whole Blood – The lead test is used to evaluate the concentration of lead in the blood at the time the sample was collected. The blood lead test is used to screen for exposure to harmful levels of lead. It may also be ordered to monitor the effectiveness of treatment and to confirm that lead levels are decreasing over time.
LH (Luteinizing hormone) – LH is often used in conjunction with other tests (FSH, testosterone, estradiol and progesterone) in the workup of infertility in both men and women. LH levels are also useful in the investigation of menstrual irregularities and to aid in the diagnosis of pituitary disorders or diseases involving the ovaries or testes.
Lithium Level – The lithium test is used to measure and monitor the amount of lithium in the blood in order to determine whether drug concentrations are in the therapeutic range. It may be used to measure blood levels every few days when a person first begins taking lithium to help adjust the dose and reach the desired blood level. The test may be used at regular intervals or as needed to monitor blood concentrations. One or more lithium tests may be ordered if a person starts taking additional medications to judge their effect, if any, on lithium levels and may be ordered if the doctor suspects toxicity.
Measles IgG Abs – Measles and mumps tests are primarily used to confirm that a person is immune to the viruses due to previous infections or vaccination.
Microalbumin, Urine Random – A microalbumin test checks urine for the presence of a protein called albumin. Albumin is normally found in the blood and filtered by the kidneys. When the kidneys are working properly, albumin is not present in the urine. But when the kidneys are damaged, small amounts of albumin leak into the urine. This condition is called microalbuminuria.
Ova & Parasite – laboratory test to determine if a stool sample contains parasites or eggs (ova) that are associated with intestinal infections.
Pap Smear – A Pap test is a test of a sample of cells taken from a women’s cervix. The test is used to look for changes in the cells of the cervix that show cervical cancer or conditions that may develop into cancer. It is the best tool to detect precancerous conditions and hidden, small tumors that may lead to cervical cancer.
PKU (Phenylketonuria) – checks whether a newborn baby has the enzyme needed to use phenylalanine in his or her body. Phenylalanine is an amino acid that is needed for normal growth and development. If a baby’s body does not have the enzyme that changes phenylalanine into another amino acid called tyrosine, the phenylalanine level builds up in the baby’s blood and can cause brain damage, seizures, and intellectual disability.
Progesterone – Since progesterone levels vary throughout the menstrual cycle, multiple (serial) measurements can be used to help recognize and manage some causes of infertility. Progesterone can be measured to determine whether or not a woman has ovulated, to determine when ovulation occurred, and to monitor the success of induced ovulation.
Prolactin – Prolactin levels are used, along with other hormone tests, to help: Determine the cause of galactorrhea, the cause of headaches and visual disturbances, Diagnose infertility and erectile dysfunction in males and females. Diagnose prolactinomas. Evaluate anterior pituitary function (along with other hormones). Monitor treatment of prolactinomas and detect recurrences.
Protein Electrophoresis – Used to identify the presence of abnormal proteins, to identify the absence of normal proteins, and to determine when different groups of proteins are increased or decreased in serum. It is frequently ordered to detect and identify monoclonal proteins – an excessive production of one specific immunoglobulin.
PSA – If prostate cancer is diagnosed, the total PSA test may be used as a monitoring tool to help determine the effectiveness of treatment. It may also be ordered at regular intervals after treatment to detect recurrence of the cancer.
PT/PTT (Prothrombin Time) – used to investigate unexplained bleeding or clotting. It may be ordered along with a PT (prothrombin Time) test to evaluate hemostasis, the process that the body uses to form blood clots to help stop bleeding. By evaluating the results of the two tests together, a doctor can gain clues as to what bleeding or clotting disorder may be present.

Thyroid Peroxidase Autoabs (TPO) – Thyroid antibody testing is primarily ordered to help diagnose an autoimmune thyroid disease and to separate it from other forms of thyroiditis. It may be ordered to help investigate the cause of a goiter (a visible enlargement of the thyroid gland) and/or performed as a follow-up when other thyroid test results show signs of thyroid dysfunction.
TSH (HS) 3rd Gen – The TSH test is often the test of choice for evaluating thyroid function and/or symptoms of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. It is frequently ordered along with or preceding a T4 test.
Uric Acid – used to detect high levels of this compound in the blood in order to help diagnose gout. The test is also used to monitor uric acid levels in people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Rapid cell turnover from such treatment can result in an increase in uric acid. The uric acid urine test is used to help diagnose the cause of recurrent kidney stones and to monitor people with gout for stone formation.
Urine Culture & Sensitivity w/ Reflex – The test is used to diagnose a urinary tract infection (UTI).
Urinalysis Random – used as a screening and/or diagnostic tool because it can help detect substances or cellular material in the urine associated with different metabolic and kidney disorders. Often, substances such as protein or glucose will begin to appear in the urine before patients are aware that they may have a problem. In patients with acute or chronic conditions, such as kidney disease, the urinalysis may be ordered at intervals as a rapid method to help monitor organ function, status, and response to treatment.
Valley Fever Cocci IgG – Coccidioidomycosis is a fungal infection most commonly seen in the desert regions of the southwestern United States, and in Central and South America. You get it by breathing in fungal particles from soil. The infection starts in the lungs. It is dormant during long dry spells, then develops as a mold with long filaments that break off into airborne spores when the rains come. Infection is caused by inhalation of the particles. The disease is not transmitted from person to person.
