Laboratory

Testing Provided

Student Health Services’ full-service lab provides in-house tests such as complete blood count (CBC), urinalysis, and rapid strep, mono or flu. If you need a test that we do not offer, we will send your samples either to LabCorp or to the North Carolina State Laboratory of Public Health.

The Student Health provider that orders your lab tests will receive your test results and contact you.
