Sequential Multiple Analysis-Twelve (or SMA 12) is the biochemical examination of various substances in the blood, such as albumin, alkaline phosphatase, glucose, bilirubin, calcium, cholesterol, and sodium. This is done with the help of a computerized laboratory analyzer that produces a printout which shows the measured values of the various substances in the blood.
This test is routinely ordered as part of a blood work-up for a medical exam or yearly physical. It used as a broad screening tool to evaluate function of different organs, to check for conditions and to monitor known conditions such as hypertension.
