The Iron TIBC ferritin blood measures your total iron, iron-binding capacity, percent saturation (calculated), and ferritin levels in the blood. The Iron test checks the iron levels in the blood. The total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) test examines if you have too much or too little iron in your blood. Iron moves through the blood attached to a protein called transferrin and the TIBC test is a good indirect measurement of transferrin availability. Ferritin testing measures the iron storage capacity in the body and if it happens to be on the lower side,...

The Iron TIBC ferritin blood measures your total iron, iron-binding capacity, percent saturation (calculated), and ferritin levels in the blood. The Iron test checks the iron levels in the blood. The total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) test examines if you have too much or too little iron in your blood. Iron moves through the blood attached to a protein called transferrin and the TIBC test is a good indirect measurement of transferrin availability. Ferritin testing measures the iron storage capacity in the body and if it happens to be on the lower side, it is an indicator of iron deficiency. Overall, the test is used to assess how the body transports iron in the blood, and to investigate iron-deficiency anemia or iron overload.

  • Test Code: 5616
  • CPT Code: 83540, 83550, 82728
  • Alternate Name: Iron, TIBC & Ferritin Panel Blood Test
  • Test Instructions : Samples should be taken in the morning from patients in a fasting state, since iron values decrease by 30% during the course of the day and there can be significant interference from lipemia.

    Please do not exercise prior to testing. It is best that your blood is taken in a rested state.

  • Fasting: Yes
  • Methodology: Immunoassay (IA) • Spectrophotometry (SP)
  • Results In: 1-3

    Note: Turn around times on results are an estimate and are not guaranteed. The lab may need additional time due to holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, etc. You can contact us to discuss when your results should be ready and we will contact the lab on your behalf immediately.
