Lab Services in Alabama
There is a variety of lab testing for cancer patients. Many doctors may use labs to help determine a path for treatment, results of treatment, and/or progression and severity of the cancer patients may have. In performing lab tests for cancer, samples of blood, urine, other bodily fluids, and/or tissue are examined to determine what is needed in the diagnosis, identification, or treatment stages.

Please notify our staff if any of the following apply:
- You are on blood thinners
- You have a special line and/or central venous catheter from which blood may be drawn. (These are also called ports, Hickmans, Neostarts, Groshongs, PICC lines and Ash-Splits.)
- You are receiving chemotherapy through this line at the time your blood is drawn.
Our Lab is the first stop for most patients at each visit.
CCI offers immediate lab results through our on-site facility. Our CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment) and COLA certified laboratory houses some of the most advanced laboratory equipment available and performs many of the routine lab tests that are required for patient cancer treatments. These tools, together with vastly experienced lab and phlebotomy staff, provide our patients and physicians quick results.
Our lab is able to process hematology, clinical chemistries, immunodiagnostics, flow cytometry, and urinalysis. For tests not performed at Clearview, dependable outside labs that provide quick results are utilized. Although the time often varies for processing and receiving lab results, you will not wait long – most outside laboratories quickly report back to us. Your medical oncologist will review your laboratory results as soon as they become available and will discuss them with you at your next visit. If any of your tests show conditions that require immediate attention, your physician or nurse will contact you.
