APO Lipoprotein Eval
This fasting blood test is used to measure Apolipoprotein A-I (APO I), a major protein component of high density lipoprotein (HDL) in blood plasma. APO-I is a major component of the high-density lipoprotein complex frequently referred to as the good cholesterol which helps to clear cholesterol from arteries. Apolipoprotein B is attached to the LDL cholesterol molecule whose major role is to carry cholesterol to the tissues. The measurement of APO-B is considered to be a better indicator of risk for arterial plaque than LDL cholesterol. Research indicates the Apolipoprotein I B ratio may be a better indicator of cardiovascular disease than other cholesterol measures.
C-Peptide$58.00 Add to cart
This fasting blood test is used to measure C-Peptide levels. C-peptide is a protein that is produced in the body along with insulin because it is generally found in amounts equal to insulin. The test is not used to diagnose diabetes. Instead, it is used to determine how much insulin a person’s pancreas is still producing.$58.00
D-Dimer (Quantitative)$78.00 Add to cart
A D-dimer is a blood test to help evaluate for possible blood clots. A D-dimer measures the tendency of blood to clot inappropriately. A D-dimer may be used to evaluate possible health threats such as a stroke, DVT (deep vein thrombosis), PE (pulmonary embolism) and arterial plaque rupture.

ABO Grouping (Blood Typing)
ABO Grouping is the classification system used to determine blood types. This system is used because antibodies needed for testing are consistent and naturally present in the serum of those blood types. The potential blood types are: O positive, O negative, A positive, A negative, B positive, B negative, AB positive and AB negative. The universal donor is O negative. The universal recipient is AB positive.$25.00
