Types of Laboratory Tests

Mercy Lab provides complete diagnostic labs and blood testing services – whether it’s routine lab work, specimen processing, phlebotomy services or consultation. Some of the most common types of lab tests we perform include:

  • Urinalysis – A urine sample is examined to diagnose conditions like urinary tract infections, diabetes, pregnancy and others.
  • Lipid panel – This blood test measures lipids – fats and fatty substances used as a source of energy by your body. Lipids include cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and low-density lipoprotein (LDL).
  • Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT) – This test calculates how long it takes blood to clot, checks for bleeding problems, and tests whether medicine to prevent blood clots is working.
  • Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP) – This blood test checks your sugar (glucose) level, electrolyte and fluid balance, and kidney function.
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) – This blood test measures your sugar (glucose) level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function and liver function.
