Lipid Panel$19 (Retail price $98, Regular price $29) Order Now
This is a group of simple blood tests that reveal important information about the types, amount and distribution of the various types of fats (lipids) in the bloodstream. Test includes: Cholesterol, Total HDL (good) Cholesterol LDL (bad) Cholesterol Risk Ratio (good to total) Triglycerides

PSA$29 (Retail price 107, Regular price 39)Order Now
The prostate specific antigen (PSA), is a protein made only in the prostate gland. PSA is produced by normal, abnormal and cancerous prostatic tissue. The PSA blood test is an accurate measure of this amount. The theory is that cancer causes more of the protein to be made and leaked into the blood than normal prostate tissue, so PSA is now used for assisting in the diagnosis and monitoring of prostatic carcinoma.
