Test Information
Optimally, refrigerated serum should be analyzed within 3-5 days of collection for most chemistry assays.
Platelet counts are given only if the platelet result from the analyzer is valid. If result is not valid, an estimated platelet range is given. If an actual platelet count is needed, the platelet count will need to be ordered in addition to the CBC.
In the event abnormal appearing cells are found during a routine screening microscopic exam, do not submit for urinalysis. We recommend you submit smears prepared from fresh urine for a routine Cytology consult.
