Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential/Platelet

[CBC] The complete blood count (CBC) is a test that quantifies various cells in the blood such as: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. This test is often used in a variety of ways, such as detecting various immune activity, response to specific treatments, or to help diagnose some blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma.


Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (14)

[CMP] Fasting recommended (see description for details). Similar to the Basic Metabolic Panel (8), this is a blood test that checks several substances in the blood, including glucose (blood sugar), electrolytes, and markers of kidney function. However, the Comprehensive panel also looks at markers of liver function. It is also one of the most commonly ordered tests.

Please note some items tested on the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel are also tested via: the Basic Metabolic Panel (8), Electrolyte Panel, Renal  Panel (10) and Hepatic Function Panel (7) (see description on individual product pages for more information to avoid redundant test ordering).


C-Reactive Protein, Cardiac

[CRP, hsCRP] Also known as hs-CRP or High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein. C-Reactive Protein is a protein made by the liver. Levels of CRP are typically associated with inflammation in the body. It is often used to detect risk in both acute and chronic conditions involving an inflammatory response.


Hemoglobin A1c

[hbA1C, A1C] – A measure of average blood glucose (or blood sugar) levels averaged over the last 2 to 3 months. Medical professionals often use this test in combination with others to diagnose risk of diabetes.


Lipid Panel

Additional preparation indicated for this test. See full description for details. The Lipid Panel measures both cholesterol (total, LDL, and HDL) and fat (triglycerides) in the blood. These four metrics are commonly used as risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Please note this test measures the same items as: the lipid panel with Total Cholesterol:HDL ratio, or lipid panel with LDL:HDL ratio, with the only difference being no ratio calculation is reported with the results (instead of Total Cholesterol:HDL Ratio, or LDL:HDL ratio respectively).


Ferritin, Serum

Special preparation indicated for this test. See full description for details. A test that measures levels of ferritin, an iron transporting protein typically used as levels correlate with total body storage iron e.g. for hemochromatosis or iron deficiency anemia.



[Lp(a)] Typically used in conjunction with other lipid tests to evaluate disorders of lipid metabolism and to assess coronary heart disease in specific populations.


NMR LipoProfile + IR Markers + Graph

Fasting recommended (see description for details). This test measures various blood lipids (Total cholesterol, LDL-C, HDL-C, Triglycerides), lipoprotein particle number (LDL-P), particle concentration and size (HDL-P, small LDL-P, LDL Size, large VLDL-P, large HDL-P, HDL Size), and insulin-resistance score (LP-IR) as well as a graph of reported results.


Lp-PLA2 Activity


Uric Acid, Serum


γ-Glutamyl Transferase (GGT)

[GGT] Fasting recommended (see description for details). A test that measures levels of GGT in the blood, a biliary enzyme. Sometimes used to evaluate, e.g. pancreatitis, alcoholic fatty liver disease, etc.


Insulin and C-Peptide, Serum

Fasting recommended (see description for details). A test that measures levels of insulin in the blood, a hormone secreted by the pancreas which is involved in glucose regulation. Also measures levels of C-peptide, a marker of insulin production within the body.


Fatty Acids, Free (Nonester)

Fasting recommended (see description for details) A test that measures levels of free fatty acids in the blood


Homocyst(e)ine, Plasma

Fasting preferred (see description for details). Homocysteine, is typically measured in those who may be at risk for heart disease and stroke.


Vitamin B12 and Folate

It is recommended to stop biotin consumption 72 hours prior to collection. See full description for details. A test that measures levels of vitamin B12, and folate in the blood


Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha





This bundle is for those who are looking for something a little extra. From heavy duty self experimentation, to establishing an extensive baseline before making a major lifestyle change – this bundle may be exactly what you’re looking for.
