Pediatric Laboratory Testing Services
ARUP Laboratories is committed to providing quality care for pediatric patients and offers one of the most extensive reference laboratory test menus available today.
Approximately one-tenth of ARUP’s testing is performed on samples collected from patients between the ages of newborn to 18 years. Small sample volumes can pose a challenge for the clinical laboratory, but ARUP is able to process and test these samples with no delays.
ARUP offers a test menu that accommodates more than 99 percent of pediatric testing requests for the diagnosis and management of conditions that affect the healthy growth and development of the pediatric patient.
Pediatric Pathology Consultation Services
Consultations for anatomic and clinical pathology
are provided by ARUP’s medical directors and
clinical consultants. These staff members hold
faculty appointments in the Department of
Pathology at the University of Utah School of
Medicine, and many are board-certified pathologists.
They conduct research and remain current on
diagnostic and therapeutic issues through their
involvement in academics and clinical practice.
ARUP’s academic affiliation with the Division of Pediatric Pathology at the University of Utah Department of Pathology allows ARUP to provide the highest-quality consultative services for hospitals and laboratories nationwide. Examples of specialty services related to pediatrics include:
- Electron microscopy
- Kidney and liver
- Muscle and nerve
- Pediatric pathology (including tumors)
- Fetal autopsy
