Copper Plasma and RBC Blood Test

Cu

Test Code: 081162
Specimen Type: Blood
Copper RBC Test Online

Description:

Copper Plasma and RBC Blood Test

The Copper Plasma and RBC test measures Copper levels in both the plasma and Red Blood Cells (RBC).  Copper is a naturally occurring element which is essential for good health.  The benefit of an RBC test is that it shows intracellular copper levels which can show a deficiency earlier than a regular Copper blood test.  

Healthy copper levels contribute to the development of red blood cells, nerves, the immune system and bones.  Copper deficiency can result from conditions such as Celiac Disease which cause malabsorption.  High levels of copper can be dangerous and may cause health problems affecting the liver and kidneys.  Copper exposure typically comes from contaminated food or water and workplace exposure in industries such as mining and metal working.  Copper toxicity can also be caused by Wilson's Disease which causes copper to be stored in tissues throughout the body. 

Turnaround for this test is typically 4-7 business days.
