Test Code: LIVER
Synonyms/Keywords
​Hepatic Function Panel
Test Components
​Albumin, Alkaline Phosphatase, Alanine Amino Transferase, Aspartate Amino Transferase, Conjugated Bilirubin, Total Bilirubin, and Total Protein
Useful For
​Provides a quick check of liver function.
Specimen Requirements
 
 
Fasting Required Specimen Type Preferred Container/Tube Acceptable Container/Tube Specimen Volume Specimen Minimum Volume
(allows for 1 repeat)
Pediatric Minimum Volume
(no repeat)
No​ Plasma/Serum​Lithium-heparin Plasma Separator (PST)​, Serum Separator Tube (SST)Lithium or Sodium-heparin Green Top (GTT), Red Top Tube (RTT)
2 mL​0.5 mL​0.8 mL whole blood​
Collection Processing Instructions

​Test panel includes bilirubin which is light sensitive, minimize light exposure during storage/transport.

Samples collected in a RTT or GTT must be removed from cells within one hour for storage or transport. Samples collected in gel barrier tubes must be removed from the primary tube prior to transporting to Marshfield. Do not send the primary collection tube.
Specimen Stability Information
Specimen Type Temperature Time
Plasma​/Serum ​ ​ Ambient​ 24 hours​
Refrigerate​ 2 days​
Frozen​ 3 months​
Rejection Criteria
Grossly hemolyzed samples
Drug Eltrombopag: interferes with the total bilirubin assays.
Interference
​Hemolyzed samples will falsely increase AST
Exposure to light will falsely decrease TBIL
