Chemistry tests are a group of routine tests designed to determine a person’s general health. For example, they help to assess the body’s electrolyte balance and/or the status of several major body organs. These tests are performed on a sample of blood, usually drawn from a vein.
Biochemical test panels can help doctors in the early detection and screening of diseases.
It plays an important role in the process of disease diagnosis, monitoring and treatment, providing doctors with a fast, efficient and comprehensive method to analyze the biochemical status of patients.
Biochemical test panels can also be used to assess the efficacy of specific drugs and monitor the course of treatment.
Some of the number and types of tests included in specific groups, as well as group names, have been standardized across the country. Examples of common chemistry panels include:
General Chemistry 9 Test Panel
General Chemistry 13 Test Panel
General Chemistry 19 Test Panel
General Chemistry Panel Test Ⅱ
Emergency Room 13 Test Panel
Electrolyte 4 Test Panel
Electrolyte 7 Test Panel
- – helpful for detecting a problem with the body’s fluid and electrolyte balance
Liver Function Panel Test
