Laboratory Services

Health Services can collect and prepare specimens for most common laboratory tests. Students may be referred to a local drawing station for laboratory test(s) requiring special collection and handling. The LabCorp drawing station is walking distance from the campus.

For students with the Caltech UHC insurance plan, please refer to the Caltech UHC plan summary or the detailed policy brochure for covered services and coinsurance responsibilities.

Students with alternative insurance plans should ensure that LabCorp is an in-network laboratory for their plan. Students with Kaiser insurance will be referred to the nearest Kaiser facility for lab tests, or may choose to have discounted lab fees billed to their Bursar's account.

Laboratory services are available from 8:15 to 3:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Most test results are available within 24-48 hours. Students will be notified via secure message about normal results, or asked to come in for a brief appointment to review any results requiring further follow-up. Students may request a copy of their lab results from the ordering provider.

Simple office procedures like the rapid strep and urine pregnancy tests are available at the student health center for a nominal fee of $10.00 each. The cost of the test is charged to the Bursar's account.

Please contact a provider at 626-395-6393 if you have any questions regarding laboratory services.
