The major sources of amylase are the pancreas and the salivary glands. The most common cause of elevation of serum amylase is inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). In acute pancreatitis, serum amylase begins to rise within 6-24 hours, remains elevated for a few days and returns to normal in 3-7 days. Other causes of elevated serum amylase are inflammation of salivary glands (mumps), biliary tract disease and bowel obstruction. Elevated serum amylase can also be seen with drugs (e.g., morphine) which constrict the pancreatic duct sphincter preventing excretion of amylase into the intestine.

Apolipoprotein B (APO B) has been reported to be a powerful indicator of CAD. In some patients with CAD, APO B is elevated even in the presence of normal LDL cholesterol.

Measurement of the levels of bilirubin is used in the diagnosis and treatment of liver, hemolytic, hematologic, and metabolic disorders, including hepatitis and gall bladder obstruction. The assessment of direct bilirubin is helpful in the differentiation of hepatic disorders. The increase in total bilirubin associated with obstructive jaundice is primarily due to the direct (conjugated) fraction. Both direct and indirect bilirubin are increased in the serum with hepatitis.

Measurement of the levels of bilirubin is used in the diagnosis and treatment of liver, hemolytic, hematologic, and metabolic disorders, including hepatitis and gall bladder obstructive disease

C-Peptide is useful in the evaluation of pancreatic beta cell function and for determining the source of insulin in patients with hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia.

Increased CRP levels are found in inflammatory conditions including: bacterial infection, rheumatic fever, active arthritis, myocardial infarction, malignancies and in the post-operative state. This test cannot detect the relatively small elevations of CRP that are associated with increased cardiovascular risk.

C-Reactive Protein Cardiac (hs CRP) Useful in predicting risk for cardiovascular disease.


Apolipoprotein A1 is the primary protein associated with HDL cholesterol. Like HDL cholesterol, increased concentrations are associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

There are two major forms of Apolipoprotein B, B-100 and B-48. B-100, synthesized in the liver, is the major protein in VLDL, IDL, and LDL cholesterol. B-48, synthesized in the intestines, is essential for the assembly and secretion of chylomicrons. Patients with increased concentrations of Apolipoprotein B are at increased risk of atherosclerosis.

A Complete Blood Count (CBC) Panel is used as a screening test for various disease states including anemia, leukemia, and inflammatory processes.

A CBC blood test includes the following biomarkers: WBC, RBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW, Platelet count, Neutrophils, Lymphs, Monocytes, Eos, Basos, Neutrophils (Absolute), Lymphs (Absolute), Monocytes(Absolute), Eos (Absolute), Basos (Absolute), Immature Granulocytes, Immature Grans (Abs)

NOTE: Only measurable biomarkers will be reported.

CBC Reflex Pathway

Step 1 - The slide review is performed by qualified Laboratory staff and includes:

  • Confirmation of differential percentages
  • WBC and platelet estimates, when needed
  • Full review of RBC morphology
  • Comments for toxic changes, RBC inclusions, abnormal lymphs, and other
  • significant findings
  • If the differential percentages agree with the automated counts and no abnormal cells are seen, the automated differential is reported with appropriate comments

Step 2 - The slide review is performed by qualified Laboratory staff and includes: If any of the following are seen on the slide review, Laboratory staff will perform a manual differential:

  • Immature, abnormal, or toxic cells
  • nRBC’s
  • Disagreement with automated differential
  • Atypical/abnormal RBC morphology
  • Any RBC inclusions

Step 3 If any of the following are seen on the manual differential, a Pathologist will review the slide:

  • WBC<1,500 with abnormal cells noted
  • Blasts/immature cells, hairy cell lymphs, or megakaryocytes
  • New abnormal lymphocytes or monocytes
  • Variant or atypical lymphs >15%
  • Blood parasites
  • RBC morphology with 3+ spherocytes, RBC inclusions, suspect Hgb-C,
  • crystals, Pappenheimer bodies or bizarre morphology
  • nRBC’s

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel



Did your physician or healthcare provider recommend an ODX functional blood chemistry analysis test to you, but you're unsure what it is?

Do you have a family history of an inheritable condition that has you concerned about your health status?

Or, are you feeling healthy but interested in monitoring your general wellbeing?

If any of these questions apply to you, we can help you better understand ODX functional blood chemistry analysis testing. You will be much more prepared and relaxed as you prepare for your test. 

What Is ODX Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis Testing?

ODX functional blood chemistry analysis testing is one of the most critical entry-level assessments that your doctor can order for you. Dr. Weatherby from Optimal DX first developed it to standardize the functional interpretation of blood chemistry tests. 

As a preventive diagnosis tool, ODX functional blood chemistry analysis testing allows your doctor to reduce the time spent analyzing multiple blood tests. The tests can be used as a prognostic marker for dysfunction if the test identifies abnormal blood chemistry.

Through ODX functional blood chemistry analysis testing, your blood biomarkers can be monitored over time to detect changes in your health before they develop into a condition that can negatively impact your health. Your results can be monitored over time to detect if there are any concerning changes. 

ODX functional blood chemistry analysis testing goes beyond routine testing. It is more comprehensive, and it includes a cross-section of tests to evaluates your body systems and the state of your health to help identify conditions you may not yet be experience symptoms. It looks at underlying health issues and evaluates the state of your health and any conditions you may have. Results from this test can help you catch critical changes in your body before they manifest into a more serious condition.

What are the Benefits of General Wellness Lab Testing?

General wellness lab testing is performed to evaluate your overall health and screen for health conditions. Like an annual physical or a biennial dental cleaning, general wellness lab testing is a great tool to check up on your body and make sure there are no underlying issues. 

Through these tests, a variety of biomarkers are reviewed and analyzed for any concerning trends. By conducting these tests, you can receive an early warning of any potential issues with your health. 

General wellness lab testing helps you react to any risk factors and proactively target lifestyle changes. Some diseases or conditions develop over time without any symptoms, so lab testing enables you to identify these conditions earlier. 

These tests can also help confirm or rule out inherited conditions. Knowing that tested levels are "normal" might help relieve stress about your general wellbeing. 

ODX Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis Testing Lab Panels

There are five blood chemistry panel options typically available for ODX functional blood chemistry analysis testing:

The ODX Vital panel is the smallest option. It contains 19 tests with 80 biomarkers. This panel includes a CBC (complete blood count) and CMP (comprehensive metabolic panel), as well as a number of screening tests to evaluate your liver and kidney functions. This panel also includes some hormonal tests to monitor your thyroid and pituitary glands. This panel serves as a great starting point to determine if all of your vital biomarkers are within normal ranges.

ODX Max contains slightly more tests, with 33 tests in total and analyzing 100 biomarkers. Some of these additional tests help to evaluate your cardiovascular, skeletal, and muscular health. This panel also tests sex hormones and biomarkers, such as DHEA sulfate, estradiol, testosterone, and SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin). Last but not least, this panel adds a test for insulin, which is vital for regulating blood glucose levels. Abnormalities in any of these tests can provide an early warning sign for a serious condition. 

The ODX Ultimate has two versions - male and female. These two versions contain 41 and 42 tests and evaluate 110 and 111 biomarkers, respectively. Additional tests for sex hormones are included in this panel. The Ultimate panel takes a more granular look at VLDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein A (which is carried in HDL cholesterol). Monitoring these levels early on can help you to make lifestyle changes to prevent and/or manage medical conditions.

Last but not least, the ODX Comprehensive panel contains the most tests of any of the options. This panel has 52 tests with 123 biomarkers. It contains all the tests mentioned in previous panels and tests for the prostate, parathyroid, and thyroid. This panel is the best option if you feel poorly and are unsure of the cause or if you have any concerning trends from your family health history.

Understanding which tests you want to review will help you narrow down your selection for which panel you should choose.

Frequently Asked Questions About ODX Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis Testing

You may still have some questions about this test and how it applies to you. Here are some frequently asked questions about ODX functional blood chemistry analysis testing:

  • Q: If I order multiple blood tests, will I need to have more than one needle stick?
    A: No; in fact, it's fairly common to order multiple lab tests off of a single blood draw where there is just one needle stick
  • Q: What do I need to do to prepare for my test?
    A: Each test has different requirements for preparation, but typically overnight fasting (or fasting up to 12 hours) is preferred
  • Q: Should I continue to take medication before getting my test?
    A: Yes; you should always take any medication that has been prescribed to you by a physician 
  • Q: What should I do if I receive an abnormal result?
    A: Abnormalities should be considered early warnings; they don't necessarily mean that you have an illness or disease. If you receive an abnormal result, reach out to your physician or healthcare provider for evaluation, further testing, and diagnosis
