About Us

ISU's Bengal Laboratory specializes in low-cost clinical laboratory diagnostic and drug testing services to:  ISU Health Center patients; ISU students, faculty, and staff; local community; ISU Health Fair participants; and non-clinical testing and monitoring for veterinary, environmental and food safety applications.

Diagnostic Services

Services requested by a Physician or an authorized healthcare provider accompanied by a prescription or electronic/phone physician order.

Non-Diagnostic Health Maintenance Services

Non-Diagnostic health services are available during scheduled Health Fairs and other related health care events in the Pocatello and surrounding areas.

Self-Referral Services

Health maintenance services that are not ordered by a physician but requested by the patient.  Patients with diabetes, cardiac, and chronic disease comprise of the majority of self-referral testing. These tests are performed in conjunction with ISU’s health fairs.  These services are not covered by insurance.

Employment Drug Screening

Pre-employment drug screening for ISU health profession students that require screening prior to clinical rotations.

Veterinary and Public Health Diagnostic and Monitoring Services

Some veterinary tests are completed on the same equipment as humans.  This service would be available to local Veterinary Clinics that do not have the ability to perform these tests.  Coggins testing would be available as this test has to be performed by personnel trained by the Federal APHIS.

Billing

Payment
