What is Alkaline Phosphatase (Serum) (ALP) test?
Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme found in several tissues throughout the body. The highest concentrations of ALP are present in the cells that comprise bone and the liver. The raised activity of ALP is seen in liver and bone diseases. ALP blood levels can be greatly increased, for example, in cases where one or more bile ducts are blocked. This can occur as a result of inflammation of the gallbladder (cholecystitis) or gallstones
Why get the Alkaline Phosphatase (Serum) (ALP) test?
An ALP test may be ordered as part of routine laboratory testing, often with a group of other tests called a liver panel. It is also usually ordered when a person has symptoms of a liver or bone disorder. ALP levels are increased in obstructive liver diseases like cholestasis and in several bone disorders like Paget's disease, rickets, osteomalacia, and hyperparathyroidism. It can also be indicative of malignant disorders.

What our customers say about us
I normally have an issue with my veins as they are very thin but the technician was experienced and the sample came out in one shot at the first attempt, which really reassured me.
The pickup was done extremely nicely. Got a message when the person started , no calls for directions and most of all extremely polite representative.
Got my one year old tested. Very professional and safe. Using sealed sample kits with needles, tubes and gloves pre-packed.
