On-site Laboratory

Lancaster Cancer Center laboratory

We provide an onsite laboratory for the ease and convenience of our patients. Our lab features state-of-the-art equipment including the most advanced instrument to test for retic hemoglobin, which allows us to perform in-house iron profiles with same day results.

The following lab tests we perform in-house include:

  • CMP
  • BMP
  • Liver panel
  • Electrolytes
  • Sugar
  • Magnesium
  • Iron panel
  • Vitamin D
  • CEA
  • CA 15.3
  • FT4
  • TSH
  • Ferritin
  • CBC
  • Reticulocyte
  • Manual differentials
  • Sedimentation rate
  • Protime

All testing performed in-house takes as little as a few minutes to the completion by the end of the same day. Studies not performed in-house are directed to the appropriate hospital or reference laboratory for testing. We also have the capabilities of performing studies for outside patients as well.

We, in the laboratory, as well as office wide, are sensitive to the insurance needs of our patients.  We are careful to make certain that any testing we perform is covered by insurance – once deductibles and copays are met.

Our laboratory staff is comprised of Medical Technologists licensed with the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. The laboratory is both CLIA (Federal) and State licensed by the American Association of Bioanalysts.
