THE GOLD STANDARD FOR GREATER INSIGHTS
Only with greater insights are better outcomes possible. Venipuncture blood evaluations offer comprehensive, customizable analysis of health status. Tests commonly included in venipuncture collections include:
- Lipids: Detects increased coronary risk through determining total cholesterol, HDL, LDL ratios and triglycerides
- Chemistries: Assists in finding diabetes, liver damage, anemia, hepatitis, kidney diseases and more
- Prostate Specific Antigen: Aids in the early detection of prostate cancer
- Complete Blood Count with Differential: Focuses on the immune system, including white blood cells, red blood cells, hemoglobin, hematocrit and other related factors
- Serum Cotinine: Useful in determining employee population tobacco use
- TSH: Assesses thyroid gland function
- Homocysteine: The newest independent cardiac health marker; studies have shown that an elevated homocysteine level is a risk factor for atherosclerosis
Our National Clinic Network of over 1,400 locations and on-site biometric screenings, make collections convenient for all participants.

CONVENIENCE, NOT COMPROMISE
Dried Blood Spot (DBS) testing pairs the convenience of finger-stick collection with the accuracy of lab based analysis. A lancet is used to prick the fingertip and the drops of blood are applied to the collection card. The sample is allowed to dry and then shipped to CRL.
This method provides a flexible solution to accommodate on-site group and at-home screening scenarios. The sample is stable at 28 days after the collection date and provides more testing options compared to point-of-care (POC) finger-stick testing. Many of our partners utilize DBS testing as an addition to on-site POC testing.
A convenient option for Cotinine testing, oral fluid is the most non-invasive form of collection available. A swab is placed between the cheek and gum for five minutes to absorb the fluid. The swab is then shipped to CRL in a preservative vial.
- Self-administered or collected under direct visual supervision
- The window of detection in oral fluid starts almost immediately after tobacco use and can last up to three days.
- The sample remains stable for up to 21 days after the collection date.
- The test will detect replacement therapies depending on the concentration of the substance and frequency of use.
- This qualitative test is calibrated specifically to avoid positive results from passive inhalation.
- Confirmation testing is available upon request for quantitative values.
