Cost: (in-app purchase for $4.99 to pro version)

With twelve different categories of lab tests spanning hematology, endocrinology, and immunology (among others), the Medical Lab Tests app is a wonderful resource for medical professionals. (Note that users can choose to upgrade to the pro version to unlock five additional areas of content: cancer markers, cerebrospinal fluid, drugs, toxicology, and urine.) The entry corresponding to each lab test includes background information on the test, the reference range, detailed clinical information, and the overall interpretation of the test. Users can readily access tests via the category menu, or they can browse the tests by their alphabetical listing. The app also allows users to search for specific tests by name. Specific tests can be saved to a favorites list for easy access later.
