Comprehensive Metabolic Panel and Common Hematological Tests

The comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) is a series of 14 tests done by a medical laboratory using a fasting blood draw from the patient. The CMP is also called the Chem 12 Panel. It is often ordered by the physician in order to assess the patient’s kidney and liver statuses, electrolytes, proteins, and blood sugar. When the CMP shows any abnormality, the physician then typically orders specific tests to further evaluate the identified disease state.

THE COMPREHENSIVE METABOLIC PANEL COMPONENTS

The CMP includes glucose, calcium, albumin, total protein, sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, chloride, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, alkaline phosphatase (ALP), alanine amino transferase (ALT/SGPT), aspartate amino transferase (AST/SGOT), and bilirubin.
