Lab

Our state-of-the-art facility houses a full-service laboratory for the convenience of our patients. Any lab tests, blood tests or specimen collections ordered by our physicians can be done in our lab before you leave the office!

Lab testing is a vital part of your treatment as it helps your doctor diagnose your health issue correctly and shows any health changes over time. By having a laboratory onsite, we are able to produce your lab results quickly, enabling your doctor to efficiently diagnosis your condition or determine if further testing is necessary.

Some of the tests we perform include:

  • CBC (Complete Blood Count) – measures the number of blood cells and the type
  • CRP (C-reactive Protein) – measures inflammation in your blood
  • CPK (Creatinine Phosphokinase) – measures inflammation in your muscles
  • Kidney Function Tests (Creatinine and BUN) – measure the health of your kidneys
  • Liver Function Tests (AST and ALT) – measure the health of your liver
  • Joint Fluid Testing – determines if you have an infection or inflammation of the joint
  • VECTRA – The concentrations of 12 serum proteins are measured. An algorithm is then applied to calculate a single Vectra DA score ranging from 1 to 100 that categorizes RA into low, moderate, or high disease activity.

Vectra DA can provide a baseline assessment of RA disease activity and track it over time. Vectra DA is validated for use in adults diagnosed with RA.
