About Us

ARUP Consult®

ARUP Consult is a web-based laboratory test selection tool that provides point-of-care diagnostic and interpretive information to clinicians and physicians. A free educational resource, it is funded entirely by ARUP Laboratories, a national clinical and anatomic pathology reference laboratory and nonprofit enterprise of the University of Utah Department of Pathology.

ARUP Consult is organized into disease-related categories and provides clinical background and diagnostic information, pharmacogenetics content, screening and monitoring suggestions, laboratory test recommendations, and relevant references. Expert-authored content is congruent with the latest medical guidelines and literature, and more than 70 algorithms supplement disease topics and support clinical decision-making. ARUP Consult is free of cost and requires no obligation for use.

Access ARUP Consult on the web or on your mobile device. The website is platform independent. ARUP Consult is as easy to view and navigate on a laptop, tablet, or mobile phone as it is on a desktop computer, and its functionality is unaffected by the device’s operating system.
