EP Blood Test - More Information

The EP test, also known as an erythrocyte protoporphyrin test and an EP lab test, measures the EP blood level.

The EP blood test is sometimes used clinically to help evaluate lead poisoning. In the setting of these conditions, EP blood levels are typically elevated and it is often ordered in conjunction with the lead test and the ZPP blood test. EP lab testing can also help in identifying iron deficiency and anemia of chronic disease.
