Lab Services

Summa Health System and its partner, LabCare Plus, use the latest laboratory technology to provide patients with prompt testing and accurate results. 

The tests performed are quite helpful in evaluating a patient’s health status. Most tests are done using a blood sample. Although it is not possible to diagnose or treat a disease or condition solely based on the results of any testing performed by a lab service, it can assist with detecting any health issues in the early stages when treatment can be most effective.

Your doctor may request one or more lab tests as part of your regular checkup, to get a diagnosis, or to provide a benchmark.

Here is a list of the most common tests that may be ordered by your physician:

  • Amylase. For symptoms of a pancreatic disorder, such as severe abdominal pain, fever, loss of appetite, or nausea.
  • ANA. Helps with the diagnosis of lupus as well as other autoimmune diseases.
  • aPTT (PTT). Evaluates the risk of excessive bleeding prior to a surgical procedure, or to monitor heparin anticoagulant therapy.
  • AIC (Hemoglobin A1C or Glycohemoglobin). Used to monitor diabetes and to assist in developing a treatment plan.
  • BMP (Basic Metabolic Panel). A group of 7-8 tests used as a screening tool to check for conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease.
  • CBC (Complete Blood Count). Used to determine general health and nutritional status, as well as screening for toxic substance exposure and for disorders such as anemia or infections.
  • CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel). A group of 14 tests that provides information about a patient’s kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance, as well as blood sugar and blood proteins.
  • Electrolytes (Electrolyte Panel). If an excess or deficit of electrolytes (sodium or potassium) or an acid-base imbalance is suspected.
  • ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate). Helps determine the cause of inflammation, or diagnose cause of joint or muscle pain.
