Laboratory

Our clinical laboratory is where tests are done on clinical specimens in order to obtain information about the health of our patients related to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.

Testing Provided

Student Health Services’ full-service lab provides in-house tests such as complete blood count (CBC), erythocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), 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.

Getting Your Results

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

Costs

Costs vary per test. Check with your health insurance company to find out what your health insurance policy covers. Depending upon your policy you may be able to receive reimbursement for some or all of these costs.
