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.
