Why to take tests?

Laboratory tests show the patient’s health status. According to them, the doctor analyzes the functioning of the whole organism. Sometimes the disease is asymptomatic or without pronounced clinical manifestations, which complicates the diagnosis. Analyzes allow you to identify pathology at an early stage, timely proceed to treatment and avoid complications.

"ON Clinic Kharkov" conducts various types of laboratory tests.

Clinical tests

Clinical analyzes reflect the general condition of the body based on data on the composition of blood, urine, feces, sperm. Deviations from normative indicators may indicate the onset or progression of the disease. Based on the results of the tests, the doctor can confirm or refute the diagnosis, prescribe a course of treatment.

Complete Blood Count

Complete Blood Count is the primary diagnostic procedure assigned to all patients. Any changes in the body affect the blood composition. For Complete Blood Count, blood is taken from a finger. An extended examination requires blood from a vein.

The procedure is carried out as a part of the preventive examination, routine medical examination, to make and clarify the diagnosis, before prescribing medication, to monitor the effectiveness of therapy, before vaccination, any surgical intervention.

Full blood count helps to determine the hemoglobin, red blood cell count, white blood cell count. A complete blood count is given in the morning on an empty stomach. Eating, drinking alcohol, and medications can significantly distort research results. You can also give a blood sample at “ОN Lab” to determine the group and Rh factor.

Common urine test

Common urine test also refers to the main diagnostic tests indicated for patients of any gender and age. The test is prescribed for suspected any infections and pathologies, is part of a comprehensive preventive examination, helps to monitor the course of treatment.

At "ON Clinic Kharkov" you can take urine tests at the address of Zimnitsky and Nechiporenko streets. The purpose of diagnosis is to determine the presence of the inflammatory process in the urinary system and the diagnosis of kidney disease. If the physico-chemical composition of the urine is abnormal, microscopic examination of the urine sediment for the content of red blood cells, white blood cells, bacteria, fungi, salts can be prescribed.

To get the correct results of the laboratory test, it is necessary to be prepared properly: per day exclude food products containing dyes from the menu, give up alcohol, and avoid excessive physical exertion. If you are constantly taking medications, notify your doctor. Women should plan an appointment for the urinalysis based on their menstrual cycle. When collecting material during menstruation, the results of a laboratory test will be distorted.

For analysis, morning urine is used collected in a sterile container after hygienic procedures.

Common stool test

The coprogram allows you to evaluate the work of the digestive tract. Also, we can pass analysis for helminth eggs. It is prescribed for suspected enterobiasis, ascariasis, giardiasis and other parasitic infections.

Spermogram

The spermogram allows you to determine the ability of a man to have children. It is prescribed for suspected diseases of the genitourinary system, before cryopreservation of sperm.

Where to get tested for infections?

You can take tests for hidden infections, including sexually transmitted infections, at the "ON Clinic Kharkov" to identify pathologies before the onset of symptoms. This list includes a large list of laboratory tests of blood, urine, sperm, scraping the epithelium of the cervix, vagina, urethra. For example, for analysis on chlamydia women take a swab from the vagina, for men – from the urethra.

Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is informative. It detects antibodies to the causative agent of infection in the blood. PCR blood test is prescribed for suspected sexually transmitted diseases, hepatitis, HIV.

Allergy tests

Allergies can occur in adults and children to anything. In order to find out what causes frequent lacrimation, runny nose, cough, rash and itching, it is necessary to give a blood sample for allergens.

For analysis of domestic allergens, blood is taken from a vein. The procedure confirms or eliminates the body’s increased sensitivity to dust, mites, molds, pet hair, plant pollen, scales and excrement of cockroaches, bugs, moths.

Analysis of food allergens allows you to exclude unsuitable food from the diet, and adjust your diet to suit your body. For the test, venous blood is used.

ALEX-test is the most informative way to diagnose allergic reactions. It covers more than 99% of standard samples, allows you to compile a detailed allergological passport of the patient. Please note: the procedure can be carried out during an exacerbation of the disease, during flowering plants. The technique allows you to achieve objective diagnostic results regardless of the use of antiallergic drugs.

Bacteriological tests

Bacterial inoculation from the nose, pharynx, ears is prescribed for infectious diseases. The procedure allows you to determine the composition, to identify the presence of pathogenic microflora microorganisms, fungi, to determine their sensitivity to antibiotics. A smear from the nasal mucosa and pharynx is prescribed in case of tonsillitis, rhinitis, sinusitis, and throat diseases. A smear from the ears – in case of otitis.

Bacteriological urine culture is prescribed for inflammatory diseases of the pelvic organs, urinary tract infections. Please note: the results of the study are affected by the use of antimicrobial agents. If you have been or are undergoing treatment, be sure to notify the doctor.

For analysis of candidiasis, a gynecological smear is taken on the microflora. A sign of infection is an excess of the norm of yeast bacteria in vagina microflora.

Biochemical analyzes            

Laboratory "ON Clinic" conducts a blood test for biochemistry. To diagnose anemia, we conduct laboratory tests for markers of anemia. Anemia develops due to an unbalanced diet, blood loss, in the setting of severe chronic diseases, toxic damage, with the abuse of certain types of drugs.

To confirm or exclude the diagnosis, the patient is referred to complete blood count in order to determine hemoglobin parameters. In case of deviations from the norm, additional analysis is carried out for ferritin. The most common is iron-deficiency anemia. Anemia can be caused by a lack of folic acid and vitamin B12. Thanks to laboratory diagnostics, it is possible to determine the type of anemia, including its latent form when the disease is asymptomatic. This allows you to start treatment on time and avoid complications.

To assess carbohydrate metabolism, a patient is referred to a comprehensive examination. It includes a daily urine test, blood glucose and glycated hemoglobin test. Carbohydrate metabolism disorders, including diabetes mellitus, are often asymptomatic or have subtle manifestations.

The assessment of carbohydrate metabolism and glycemia – the content of glucose in blood serum – is of fundamental importance in the treatment of diabetes. A blood sugar test is taken in the fasting state or after glucose loading.

Glycemia control is also required for chronic diseases of the liver, pancreas, taking drugs based on estrogen, amphetamine, anabolic steroids. To clarify the diagnosis, the patient is referred to glucose tolerance test (GTT) – analysis to determine insulin sensitivity.

Preparation for analyzes

Blood test (general rules)

The blood test results depend on the physiological state of a person at the time of the test. Therefore, before carrying out biochemical, hormonal, hematological and complex immunological blood tests, it is advisable to follow the general rules for preparing for a test:

  • It is recommended to donate blood in the morning, on an empty stomach (it is advisable not to eat 8 hours before the test, but fasting for more than 14 hours is not recommended). The day before the test, it is important to avoid food overload of the body.
  • You can drink water in the usual amount, and you should refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages.
  • Do not smoke at least one hour before the study.
  • The day before the test, it is important to exclude physical and emotional overload of the body.
  • It is recommended to rest, preferably to sit 10-20 minutes before the blood test. For this, it is advisable to come to the medical center in advance.
  • When taking medications, you should consult with your doctor about the possibility of taking a break in taking the medication before the test and about the length of this break, if possible.
  • It is undesirable to take a blood test after instrumental examination, physiotherapy and other medical procedures.
  • If a laboratory blood test is performed several times, as a control of the dynamics of the disease course, in order to obtain the most accurate results, it should be taken under the same conditions (in the same laboratory, at the same time of day).

Emergency studies and tests for infections, for which it is impossible to get prepared in compliance with all the rules, it is advisable to take on an empty stomach (do not take food 4-6 hours before the test). The glucose tolerance test is also taken in the morning on an empty stomach (you need to fast for at least 12, but not more than 16 hours).

Blood is taken to determine the following lipid index parameters strictly on an empty stomach, after 12-14 hours of fasting:

  • cholesterol;
  • high density lipoprotein (HDL);
  • low density lipoprotein (LDL);
  • very low density lipoproteins (VLDL);
  • triglycerides;
  • apolipoprotein А1;
  • apolipoprotein В;
  • lipoprotein.

Urine test

1-2 days before urine collection, it is important to exclude factors that can distort the test results:

  • food products that can discolor urine (for example, brightly colored fruits, vegetables and dishes made from them, smoked meat, sweets and marinades);
  • alcohol, taking vitamins, dietary supplements, diuretics; 
  • serious physical activity, bath and sauna.

Menstruation, an infectious disease with temperature rise, or a significant increase in blood pressure - are the reason for rescheduling the test.

The urine is collected in disposable sterile containers available at any pharmacy. Thorough hygiene of the external genital organs must be carried out before urinating.

There are several types of urine tests:

  • Nechiporenko urine test;
  • clinical urine test;
  • bacteriological urine test.

For the Nechiporenko urine test, an average portion of morning urine is collected immediately after sleep. The urine is collected in a special container that can be bought at the pharmacy.

Before collecting urine, wash the external genitalia. Women do it from front to back with a mild soapy solution. The test is not performed during the period.

After hygiene procedures, you should start urinating into the toilet, then hold it back and excrete urine into a special container in an amount of 10-20 ml. After this, urination is completed in the toilet. Collected urine is sent to a laboratory for analysis.

For the clinical urine test, it is necessary to collect all the morning urine, mix it thoroughly, and pour about 50-100 ml into a sterile container. The container should be delivered to the laboratory as soon as possible, since the analysis must be performed within 2 hours after urine collection.

For the bacteriological urine test, an average morning portion of urine (in a volume of 10-20 ml) is used being collected in a special container in compliance with sterility conditions and delivered to a medical laboratory. Urine must be taken before starting antibiotic therapy or 3 days after it.

Before collecting urine, thorough washing of the external genital organs and the anus area is carried out with warm boiled water. Men need to pay special attention to the washing of the urethral opening, and women - the vaginal vestibule. Disinfectants should not be used during washing, as they can inhibit the growth of microorganisms if they enter the sample.

Stool test

3-4 days before the stool test, you should stop taking laxatives, castor oil and liquid paraffin, refuse introducing rectal suppositories. Feces obtained after an enema or taking barium (with X-ray examination) is not good for the test. Feces for intestinal dismicrobism are collected before starting treatment with chemotherapeutic and antibacterial drugs. It is advisable to collect material for test before prescribing antibiotics (if this is not possible, then only 12 hours after drug discontinuation).

A sterile bedpan and a disposable screw-top container with a spoon are used to collect stool. The bedpan is pretreated with a disinfectant, thoroughly rinsed with running water and rinsed with boiling water.

Before collecting the test material, you should urinate in the toilet, then, by natural defecation, collect the feces in a bedpan (it is important to ensure that there is no urine in them). After that, the feces are collected in a disposable container, which must be tightly closed, and delivered to the medical center within 3 hours from the moment of test material collection. During this time, the material should be stored at temperatures from + 2 ° C to + 8 ° C, avoiding freezing.
