Blood screening provides a comprehensive evaluation of a general health status for patients.
As a physician, you want to improve the lives of your patients. Patients expect personalized care, tailored medications and thoughtful oversight. Today, physicians have a wide range of testing options to choose from with blood testing being among the most basic. A blood chemistry screen is commonly used as an initial test to indicate potential health problems in patients.
Mercury Innovations testing panels give a detailed analysis of disease markers, nutrients and waste products in the blood, as well as how various organs are functioning. Abnormal results often necessitate additional tests to establish a diagnosis. If an abnormality is found and the physician can make a definitive diagnosis, appropriate treatment can be initiated.

Why is the Wellness Panel important?
The Glucose (in the CMP) and Hemoglobin A1c tests check for diabetes. The Lipid Panel measures your standard lipid and cholesterol markers. An abnormal Lipid Panel suggests you are at an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
The CBC and CMP tests include a variety of markers that check your immune system, red blood cells, clotting system, electrolytes, kidney and liver function. Calcium is important for bone health, muscle function, and blood clotting.
Do I need to fast to take this test?
An 8-12 hour fast is recommended before testing.
How long does it take to get test results?
It typically takes 4-7 business days or less.
I feel healthy, so why should I get tested?
A serious medical condition such as heart disease, prostate cancer or diabetes can exist without noticeable symptoms for up to two years. Early detection is your best defense. A simple blood test can increase your chances of reversing potential problems, and establish a baseline of your normal ranges from which future tests can be monitored.
What if I have questions about the results?
Questions regarding abnormal results should be discussed with your healthcare provider. For general questions, you may call once of our customer service team members.
