Arthritis Screening

The Arthritis Foundation says the following blood tests can prove useful if you and your doctor suspect you you have rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, Lyme disease or other inflammatory forms of arthritis:

  • Antinuclear antibody (ANA)
  • Rheumatoid factor (RF)
  • Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP)
  • Uric acid
  • HLA tissue typing
  • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate
  • C-reactive protein
  • Lyme serology

If your doctor has suggested a blood test, we can help.

Our lab is hygienic, easy-to-find, and far more affordable than hospital labs. We’ll ensure your blood is drawn quickly and efficiently by one of our experienced lab professionals and that the results get where they need to go.
