ANA  Anti-Nuclear Antibodies
This antibody test is routinely used as an initial screening assay for patients suspected of having Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. 

Andostrenedione Levels
Androstenedione is an androgen steroid that is normally synthesized within men and women and may be metabolized to a more potent androgen or estrogen hormone. It was nominated to the National Toxicology Program for study due to concern for adverse health effects associated with its chronic use as a dietary supplement by athletes (prior to the banning of its over the counter sales). Elevated levels of androgens may be found in women with polycystic ovaries, or with a tumor in the pituitary gland, adrenal gland, or ovary. May also be associated with excess prolactin levels.
Blood Typing and RH Grouping
Blood typing is a method to tell what specific type of blood you have. What type you have depends on whether or not there are certain proteins, called antigens, on your red blood cells.
CA-125
CA-125 is primarily used to monitor therapy during treatment for ovarian cancer. CA-125 is also used to detect whether cancer has come back after treatment is complete. Series of CA-125 tests that show rising or falling concentrations are often more useful than a single result. This test is sometimes used to test and monitor high-risk women who have a family history of ovarian cancer but who do not yet have the disease.
C-Reactive Protein
Measurement of Cardiac C Reactive Protein is used to measure the relative risk of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease leading to heart attack and stroke. It is a measure of inflammation which correlates with elevated cholesterol levels to determine your potential risk for heart attack or stroke.
Chemistry Profile
This panel is a comprehensive screening panel including electrolytes, kidney function, liver function, and mineral balance. It is a common screening test ordered by primary care physicians.
Cholesterol Test
After the VLDL's drop off their cholesterol load they turn into LDL's which then carry any left over cholesterol around the body. When there is too much LDL cholesterol circulating in the blood it can deposit onto the lining of artery walls. For this reason LDL is often referred to as "bad" cholesterol. 
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Commonly ordered blood test which includes a white blood cell count (can indicate infection), hemoglobin and hematocrit for evaluation of possible anemia's, and a platelet count, which is a cell important for proper blood clot formation.
DHEA-S
DHEA-S for short. It’s a natural steroid hormone produced from cholesterol and it purpose is to serve as a precursor to male and female sex hormones. This hormone is also associated with immune and stress response.
Estradiol Levels
The Estradiol assay is designed for the investigation of fertility in women of reproductive age, and for the support of in vitro fertilization. 
Estrogen Levels
Evaluate for ovarian estrogen producing tumor in the premenarcheal and postmenopausal female; evaluate estrogen excess in males. Estrogen analysis may be helpful in establishing time of ovulation and optimal time for conception. Serial samples must be collected over several days to evaluate baseline and peak total estrogen levels.
Epstein Barr Virus
Epstein-Barr virus, frequently referred to as EBV, is a member of the herpesvirus family and one of the most common human viruses. The virus occurs worldwide, and most people become infected with EBV sometime during their lives.
Ferritin
A ferritin blood test checks the amount of ferritin in the blood. Ferritin is a protein in the body that binds to iron; most of the iron stored in the body is bound to ferritin.
FSH Hormone Test
FSH is the most important hormone level. FSH indirectly relates to sperm concentration and therefore can be helpful in determining whether lack of sperm production or obstruction is responsible for a low sperm concentration.
Growth Hormone Levels
This hormone is essential for growth, and is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. This growth hormone level test can detect excessive levels that can lead to a condition called acromegaly, which is characterized by abnormal enlargement of the face, hands, and feet. Anyone considering going on exogenous growth hormone therapy (injections) should first have this level checked. 
Hemoglobin A1c
Home blood sugar (glucose) testing is an important part of controlling blood sugar for people with diabetes.
Homocysteine
This test is intended for use in screening patients who may be at risk for Heart Disease and stroke. Homocysteine can be considered to be an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease. Patients with cardiovascular disease, including heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, and thromboembolic disease generally have higher homocysteine levels than matched controls.
Magnesium Levels
Magnesium is an important electrolyte needed for proper muscle, nerve, and enzyme function. It also helps the body make and use energy and is needed to move other electrolytes (potassium and sodium) into and out of cells.
MMR Titers
There have been recent outbreaks of measles, mumps, and rubella on college campuses. Measles, Mumps and Rubella are highly contagious, and can present serious health problems. The MMR Titer Test measures your Measles/Rubeola, Mumps & Rubella (MMR) IgG antibody titer levels. Many people have had the MMR vaccine at some point in their lives. The MMR Titer Test is the way to confirm immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella. Positive results mean that you have enough antibody in your system to be considered immune to one or more of Measles, Mumps, and Rubella according to accepted international standards. MMR Titer Test results are reported as quantitative (i.e. number) IgG titers.
Pregnancy Test (Blood Serum)
Doctors use two types of blood pregnancy tests. Blood tests can detect hCG earlier in a pregnancy than urine or home pregnancy tests can. These tests can confirm a pregnancy about 8 to 10 days after ovulation. Blood pregnancy tests will yield a positive result if they detect 5 mIU (milli-International Units per milliliter) of HCG in the blood.
PSA Test
Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by cells of the prostate gland. The PSA test measures the level of PSA in the blood. Men can have a low level of PSA in their blood; however, prostate cancer or benign (not cancerous) conditions can increase a man’s PSA level.

Detecting certain types of prostate cancer early can be critical. Elevated PSA results may reveal prostate cancer that's likely to spread to other parts of your body (metastasize), or they may reveal a quick-growing cancer that's likely to cause other problems. Early treatment can help catch the cancer before it becomes life-threatening or causes serious symptoms. In some cases, identifying cancer early means you will need less aggressive treatment, reducing your risk of side effects such as erectile dysfunction and incontinence. If you are in a group of men at high risk of prostate cancer, you're even more likely to benefit from PSA testing.  $49.00
PT/INR Test
The Prothrombin time (PT/INR) is a blood test that measures how long it takes blood to clot. The PT/INR is also used to monitor whether medicine used to prevent blood clots is working. An abnormal PT/INR test may be a sign of liver disease or injury or indicate the need to adjust the dosage of blood thinner (anti-coagulation) medicine.
Testosterone Free, and Total
A Testosterone Blood Screening can provide a much needed diagnosis for a man who is experiencing sexual dysfunction. Below normal or depressed testosterone levels typically are not the reason a man is impotent, but it can be a vital indicator for this problem.

The testicles produce the primary male hormone known as testosterone. Testosterone hormone is critical for ensuring everything from puberty as a teenager to maintaining secondary male sexual characteristics as a man ages. A man’s testosterone production typically starts to decline when he reaches 40 years of age and continues declining as he gets older. While Testosterone Screening is a diagnostic tool for sexual dysfunction or infertility, it’s also used to check for hormonally influenced diseases.
Thermography - Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI)
By 1982, the Food and Drug Administration approved thermography and classified it as an additional diagnostic tool for the detection of breast cancer. However, DITI was introduced as a diagnostic tool before strict protocols were established for both the technicians who performed the scans and the doctors who interpreted the scans.
Vitamin D Levels
This test measures the amount of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in blood. This is a by-product of the body's breakdown of a form of vitamin D. This test is used to evaluate suspected vitamin D deficiency. It is also used when conditions of abnormal intake or absorption of vitamin D, such as rickets or osteomalacia (soft bones), are suspected
