Tests and Test Profile

Assaying is the practice of repeated analysis of samples in order to obtain optimum results.  At Medical Assay Laboratory quality is in our name and service is the reason for our being.   Our tests are conducted with utmost care and high-quality assurance standards in a state-of-the-art laboratory facility.   In addition to fulfilling federal and state government standards for clinical laboratories, we have chosen to exceed these standards by pursuing specialized accreditation with the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation (COLA) to further enhance quality.  Our testing equipments are high-resolution and top of the line with unparalleled speed and accuracy (see equipment description). We use only reagents that are of the highest purity.  If a test result appears abnormal, we assay it again for accuracy and check it against a standard before reporting the result to you.  We provide individual blood tests, test panels and comprehensive health packages at costs that are clearly low.

Medical Assay Laboratory does not discriminate in its fee structure between tests ordered for diagnostic purposes and those ordered for longevity and life-style changes as many laboratories do.  We offer you the same low cost based on the principle that our analyses, regardless of intended purpose or use, are of the same high-quality and produced on the same set of high precision instruments.  Please contact us for additional information about costs for other tests and the discounts we offer for large volumes and contract services.

Immigration Panel:

Syphilis (RPR)

This panel is specially tailored for those individuals required to perform serological test for immigration and naturalization purposes.  Because insurance companies do not pay for these immigration tests, we have discounted these tests as a corporate gesture to our new immigrants or citizens.


Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Panel



This test can screen for STD that can be fatal or cause damage to other organs including heart, kidneys and brain.  STD’s are a major cause of infertility, ectopic or tubal pregnancies and cervical cancer caused by the human pappilloma virus.


Drug Screening Panel

    Kidney (Renal Function) Panel


This set of tests check the kidneys for proper functioning. The test includes the following: Albumin, Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN), BUN:creatinine ratio, calcium, total carbon dioxide, chloride, creatinine, glucose, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium.

Liver Panel

The liver is an important organ in the body.  Many toxic medications, use of alcohol, liver injury, some cancer and hepatitis may adversely affect the liver.   This test consist of the basic hepatic profile:
      Alkaline Phosphatase
      Alanine Transaminase (ALT) (SGPT)
      Aspartate Transaminase (AST) (SGOT)
      Bilirubin, Total
      Billirubin, Direct
      Protein, Total  

   Thyroid Screen Panel


General screening for thyroid problems typically involves a blood test for Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). However, other blood tests may be done to gather more information. The Thyroid Panel test includes the following: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Free thyroxine index (FTI), thyroxine (T4), and thyroid hormone binding ratio. (T3 uptake).



CardiovascularCardiac (Heart Risk) Panel

Heart disease is the number one killer in America. Medical Assay Laboratory will assist you identify if you are at risk.   This panel will measure your total cholesterol; HDL (good) cholesterol; LDL (bad)  cholesterol,  Triglycerides and Risk Ratio (good to total).  We will partner with Physicians and their patients to help prevent heart attack or stroke.  The first purchase of a cardiac panel from us for a pariticular patient establishes our laboratory baseline. Costs for subsequent purchase from us for the same patient will be incremently discounted (20%, 40%, and capped at 60%), consistent with our pleadge to work with you in reducing cholesterol through life style changes (exercise and diet) or a combination of life style changes and medication as determined by a physician. 

Diabetes Panel


In addition to testing your blood Glucose and screening for your Hemoglobin A1c level, we also test for the levels of  important electrolytes such as sodium, potassium,  and calcium to help understand your diabetes status.



The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)

This panel consists of a group of 14 tests needed to diagnose  the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins. Abnormal results, and especially combinations of abnormal results, can indicate a problem that needs to be addressed.
