Lab Tests Online (now Testing.com) is a peer-reviewed non-profit web resource about clinical laboratory testing.[1][2] The site provides information on clinical lab tests as well as conditions that are managed or diagnosed by lab tests.[3] Lab Tests Online also provides summaries of recommendations by age, feature articles on lab-related topics, and news items of patient interest.[4] All contents are reviewed and approved by an Editorial Review Board composed of laboratory professionals before being posted to the site.[1]

The site was launched in 2001 by the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, the scientific society for clinical laboratory science and is a collaboration with other professional societies representing the laboratory medicine community.[2][5] The website is mirrored on other sites in other countries and is available via mobile apps in several countries.[6]

In January 2021, AACC’s Lab Tests Online (labtestsonline.org) was acquired by OneCare Media.[7] In November of 2021, LabTestsOnline.org was rebranded to Testing.com.[8]
