ARUP’s clients include more than half of the nation’s university teaching hospitals and children’s hospitals, as well as regional hospital networks, multihospital groups, major commercial laboratories, group purchasing organizations, military and government facilities, and major clinics.

ARUP Lab is home to more than 60 individual labs specializing in all aspects of clinical and anatomic pathology. The test menu encompasses more than 3,000 tests, including highly specialized and esoteric tests. Comprehensive testing is offered in the areas of pathology, allergy and immunology, chemistry, cytogenetics, endocrinology, fetal risk assessment, genetics, hematology, hepatitis and HIV, infectious diseases, neurology, oncology, genetics, molecular oncology, anatomic pathology, pediatrics, and pain management, among others.
