Clinical Laboratories

Each of our practice sites maintain an on-site laboratory. The main laboratory, however, possesses the most comprehensive on-site test menu and is located at our Brittonfield office. This main laboratory services all practice sites and augments the smaller on-site testing menus.

Our testing menu includes complete cell blood counts (CBC) with microscopic examination, comprehensive blood chemistry analysis, specialized protein assays (Free Light Chains and Quantitative Immunoglobulins),  coagulation testing (PT), Urinalysis (UA), Alpha-Feto Protein (AFP), Beta Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (BHCG), Carcino Embryonic Antigen (CEA), Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Beta 2 Microglobulin, Ferritin, Vitamin B12, Folate, and cancer antigen markers( CA-27.29, CA-125, and CA 19-9). Analyzers such as the SiemensAdvia, Roche Integra and Siemens Centaur provide the instrumentation for laboratory testing.
