CBH laboratory is specialized in sweat chloride testing of patients suspected of having cystic fibrosis. This test is designed to measure the amount of chloride in a child’s sweat by stimulating the skin to produce enough sweat, which is then absorbed into a special collector and analyzed. The result will in turn determine whether the patient suffers from cystic fibrosis – a high level of chloride - or not.
