Abnormalities

Maintaining the acid-base balance and osmotic pressure of the blood are essential to health.  To diagnose and monitor a variety of pathological conditions, including metabolic or respiratory acidosis and alkalosis, a number of electrolytes, as well as several other metal ions, are measured in serum, plasma and urine. 

For in vitro diagnostics use only.

Patient health and well-being is not only dependent on detecting major diseases but also maintaining balance of health and measure of overall patient health and well-being. Some common analytes, such as magnesium, are ordered on a stat basis because they are critical in diagnosis and treatment. In addition to blood samples, concentrations of the four major cations and anions analytes (Na, K, Cl, and CO2) are also assayed in 24-hour urine samples.
