Laboratory Services

Health Services provides an on-site medical laboratory to provide timely, accurate laboratory procedures in support of clinical evaluation and diagnosis. The lab is a moderate complexity CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act) approved lab.

The Health Services Medical Laboratory is currently managed by Rhonda Castro MT (ASCP); please refer to the Meet the Staff section on this website. Ms. Castro and her staff are able to provide timely and convenient care.

Procedures performed by the Health Services:

  • Medical Laboratory including Hematology (CBC, Diff, Sed Rate)
  • Chemistry (glucose)
  • Influenza, Mono and Strep
  • Urinalysis (UA-dipstick, UA-microscopic, Pregnancy)
  • Microbiology (KOH, Saline)
  • Venipuncture specimen collection

Health Service utilizes Labcorp as its reference medical laboratory for certain tests that cannot be performed by our Medical Lab.

Lab tests that are ordered by Health Services that are sent to Labcorp will incur an additional fee.  In addition, some labs may require an order to be done at another outside lab facility.

Beginning January 1, 2015, Georgia Southern University Health Services will no longer draw/perform/send out laboratory tests ordered by outside medical providers not associated with Georgia Southern University Student Health Services.  Any persons requiring lab tests ordered by an outside medical provider will need to have those drawn/performed/sent by an outside lab facility.
