The cost is $93.00 each. He must submit 2ml of blood serum or plasma in a
grey or purple tube. Re: Urine, 20ml that is frozen & light protected,
with 5drops of concentrated HCL. Anyone having these tests should have
their lab or physician contact client services at Nat. Med., Pa. for exact

through another lab. If the specimens are sent direct to Nat. Med., they

urine test specifies "pos. findings may indicate a"Disintegrated Breast
Implant". Also, most private physicians have accounts with the Lab Corp.

women has been ex-planted she might want to have the URINE test first as
it may not alwaysshow in the blood. (also it may not show in the urine
