The procedures completed at our facility vary. Here is a listing of a few of our procedures with a brief description.
Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF)
A lumbar puncture (LP), also called a spinal tap, is an invasive outpatient procedure used to remove a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the subarachnoid space in the spine. (This test is similar to a blood test, in which a needle is inserted into an artery to collect blood for testing.)
Blood is extracted from a vein for various diagnostic purposes or in the process of blood donation and collection.
The urine specimen collection is a procedure used to obtain a sample of urine from the donor. The sample is used for diagnostic tests.
