In testing for metabolic function, your laboratory may often rely on the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP). CMP provides diagnostic information on a variety of analytes that reflect the function of several major organs including the liver, lungs, kidney and heart. It also serves as an initial broad medical screening tool to check diabetic and parathyroid status, as well as electrolyte and fluid balance.

Other testing for metabolic function may include the diagnostic evaluation of a wide variety of symptoms and variations and the long-term management of disorders of deficiency or excess of one or more hormones. Some of the most common endocrine diseases include diabetes mellitus.

For in vitro diagnostic use.


Is your laboratory prepared to respond to the increasing demands in metabolic testing?

Metabolic assays at Abbott are designed to provide laboratory professionals with the clinical information they need to help identify a particular disease state for patients who present with non-specific symptoms. 

Diagnosing diabetes early and accurately

Over 11% of the US population (38.4 million) have diabetes,1 and each year approximately 1.2 million people are newly diagnosed.2 To improve patient outcomes, diagnose diabetes early and accurately.

Standardized for diagnosing and monitoring diabetes, our clinical chemistry HbA1c assay gives your laboratory elevated confidence in results, increased efficiency, and minimized tech hands-on time.

Clinical chemistry hba1c:

  • Is designed to have diagnostics and monitoring claims for diabetes mellitus on ARCHITECT c4000 and ARCHITECT c8000
  • Does not have significant interference from the common hemoglobin variants
  • Is a fully automated whole blood application with no manual pretreatment steps
