Automated Chemistry performs approximately 5 million tests per year. The lab utilizes a Siemens LabCell (including 3 Centaur instruments and 4 Advia 1800 instruments) to offer a menu of over 100 assays on blood, urine and other body fluids 24 hours a day. An extensive menu of specialized testing (including prenatal screening, hormone, hepatitis, HIV testing, tumor markers and vitamins) is also offered utilizing high-pressure liquid chromatography, fluorescence polarization, radioimmunoassay, chemiluminescence and ELISA methodologies.
The Drug Analysis and Toxicology Laboratory, a division of the Chemical Pathology Laboratory, offers comprehensive testing programs for banned drugs and drugs of abuse as well as more than 30 different blood tests for therapeutic drug monitoring. Please refer to the MLabs Test Catalog for available assays and specimen collection requirements.
The following drug screening assays are available:
