Lab Tests, Urinalysis, Hematology, Toxicology and Protocols

Lab Testing

  • Produced by the AACC; this site has been designed to help patients or family caregivers to better understand the many clinical lab tests that are part of routine care, diagnosis, and treatment of a broad range of diseases. For medical professionals, this site can serve as a quick reference tool or as a resource for keeping up with advances in laboratory science.
  • Search by name of test or the analyte to find a fact sheet on each test and expected values.
  • Test Catalog contains descriptions of all test offered at UM.
  • For the tests offered by Mayo Medical Laboratories, it provides interpretive guidance, along with necessary background clinical information to place the tests in proper context. The information for each test is prepared by a Mayo Clinic expert with direct oversight of that test.
  • Clincal Laboratory Reference: Tables of Critical Limits, Values, Reference Values CLR Online is a catalog from the Medical Laboratory Observer.  In addition to showing which labs sell which tests, it also has handy PDFs of Critical values for therapeutic drug levels, cut-off & toxicity levels for drugs-of-abuse testing, a table of critical limits, and a table of reference intervals


  • from the Internet Pathology Laboratory which explains proper procedure for a urinalysis and includes pictures of slides. 


  • To teach students and professionals in the field of morphology of blood cells.
  • is a web site which publishes original research, creates reference works, and creates and disseminates educational material.
  • The first installment of this fully searchable directory features more than 800 hematological slides depicting various blood disorders and malignancies.


  • is the agency of the United States Government in charge of public health assessments of waste sites, health consultations concerning specific hazardous substances, health surveillance and registries, response to emergency releases of hazardous substances, applied research in support of public health assessments, information development and dissemination, and education and training concerning hazardous substances.
    is a cluster of databases on toxicology, hazardous chemicals, and related areas.
  • WWW Virtual Library Forensic Toxicology
    is, quite literally, the use of toxicology in courts of law. This is most often understood to mean the analysis of alcohol, drugs, and poisons in body fluids and the interpretation of those analytical results for the benefit of the courts.


  • Protocol Online
    Protocol Online is a database of research protocols in a variety of life science fields. It contains protocols contributed by worldwide researchers as well as links to web protocols hosted by worldwide research labs, biotech companies, personal web sites.
  • MicrobeLibrary Protocol Collection
    Common protocols in microbiology.
  • VADLO Life Sciences Search Engine: Protocols
    Search VADLO for techniques, recipes, methods, procedures in molecular biology.
  • Bio-protocol
    An e-journal founded in 2010 by a group of Stanford researchers to make life-science research more efficient and reproducible by curating and hosting high quality, open-access, life science protocols.
