Laboratory Services

It takes special expertise to understand pediatric reference ranges. It takes even greater expertise to develop them.


Medical professionals all agree that children require special care. And because our staff is dedicated to pediatrics, we have a higher level of understanding.  

  • Our exceptionally trained pediatric phlebotomists will always provide special care and attention to your child.

  • We develop customized pediatric reference ranges that correspond to our own instrumentation, leading to better diagnoses, treatments and outcomes.

  • We use micro-sampling instrumentation to allow for more accurate results on small samples (and our pediatric blood draw expertise means fewer “sticks”).
  • We conduct weekly disease trend reports to physicians, contributing to earlier detection.
  • Extensive medical and doctoral staff are available to answer questions and consult regarding rare and difficult findings.

The Online Laboratory Test Directory is the gray alphabet box located at the top of every page on our website. This provides you easy access to search on more than 1500 tests that we perform. It will provide you with information regarding what type of sample needs to be collected, as well as special instructions regarding transport and special preparations for the test. 

Please click the letter that corresponds with you desired test or enter a keyword into the search box.
