A number of general diagnostic tests are performed by the SHS lab and a full range of lab tests are available, for a fee, through our reference lab. Lab tests are ordered by an SHS clinician. Patients requesting lab tests ordered by a non-ISU clinician can be accommodated by calling Appointments (309) 438-2778 or Nurse Consult (309) 438-7676.
The SHS laboratory is a federally-certified (CLIA) facility offering a range of services. The lab is staffed by registered laboratory technologists and technicians and participates in annual proficiency testing through the College of American Pathologists.
