Full-Service Diagnostic Testing
We offer our clients a full range of routine and specialized testing performed on-site, with same day turn-around for most tests. Some of the more common standard tests offered by Sagenex Labs include:
These are only part of the tests that are available at Sagenex Labs.
We offer a wide array of laboratory services – from protein and hormone testing to serology and immunology – and everything in between. Most panels and tests can be customized to meet your particular needs. For a more complete list of our services please call 985-718-1692.
Comprised of two parts, the qualitative enzyme immunoassay based screen (EIA) that includes tests designed to detect adulteration, and a quantitative confirmation using tandem liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LC/MS/MS). Tests are available through Sagenex Labs for nearly every drug and its metabolites. For example, Sagenex is one of only a handful of labs in the country that tests for Kratom, one of the fastest growing drugs of abuse among America’s youth.
We currently test for nearly 60 drugs and their metabolites including Kratom, classified as a “drug of concern” by the Drug Enforcement Agency. As a leader in laboratory diagnostics, Sagenex Labs is one of only a handful of labs in the United States offering testing for Kratom. We are committed to continuing to develop new cutting-edge testing methodologies to meet the needs of our clients and exceed the offerings of our competition.
Basic Metabolic Panels
The Basic Metabolic Panel is a battery of 8 tests and 1 calculation. It includes Urea Nitrogen, Creatinine, Blood-Urea-Nitrogen (BUN)/Creatinine Ratio (calculated), Glucose, Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Carbon Dioxide (total), and Calcium. This panel is of great utility in the diagnosis of conditions requiring immediate treatment such as diabetic crisis, fluid imbalances; liver, heart and renal failure, the toxic effects of drugs and chemicals, and many more.
Comprehensive Metabolic Panels
The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel is a battery of 14 tests and 3 calculated values designed to assess the function of most of the organ systems of a patient, including the kidneys, liver, pancreas, bone and connective tissue, fluid balance, acid/base balance, digestive system, and much more. The panel often serves as an initial screening tool. It is comprised of, Albumin, Total Protein, Globulin (calculated), Albumin: Globulin (A:G) Ratio, Alkaline Phosphatase, Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT), Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST/SGOT), Total Bilirubin, Blood-Urea-Nitrogen (BUN), Creatinine, BUN: Creatinine Ratio, Calcium, Glucose, Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Carbon dioxide (total).
Urinalysis is one of the most important tests performed in clinical laboratory medicine. It includes a visual assessment of urine color and clarity, a macroscopic assessment of pH, specific gravity, glucose, bilirubin, ketone, blood, protein, urobilinogen, nitrite, and leucocyte esterase; and a manual microscopic review to include mucous, epithelial cells, casts, white and red blood cells, yeast, crystals, and other miscellaneous findings when indicated by chemical analysis.
Complete Blood Count
The analysis of blood, especially including the complete blood count test, is one of the most helpful and revealing methods of testing a patient’s general wellbeing and current health state. Analysis of the relative and absolute number of cells, their type speciation, their maturity, and other physical characteristics allows for the screening and diagnosis of a huge variety of medical and physiological conditions.
Genetic data relevant to drug use, drug abuse and addiction have advanced the field of pharmacogenomics in general. Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genetic variations impact the efficacy of medications in the treatment of the disease. By predicting an individual’s response to a drug in advance, physicians can custom-tailor their medication plan for the patients’ individual needs. With pharmacogenomics testing, Sagenex Labs provides you with a basis for better diagnosis and treatment of the biological disease of addiction.
