Can someone recommend a cheap medical lab for blood work somewhere near Jersey City, Hoboken, Newark, etc...?

Back home before I moved here, there were walk in clinics where they would do blood testing for things like cholesterol for around 20-30 bucks.

Is there anything like this sort here?

I'm trying to get blood work done for a food allergy test, and I currently don't have any health insurance (since I'm young and healthy). Thus I am just trying to find an affordable place to get the blood work done.

the biggest lab is Lab Corp in all areas of NJ, however I think you would best find this service thru a private doctor and can arrange a price or call health department sometimes they have free cholesterol screenings if you live in that town. Or call a private clinic? Just some ideas.

There'sa big difference between cholesterol screening, which most places can do cheaply, and testing for a food allergy, which is a specialized test. You're likely to have to go to LabCorp, Quest, or one of the other big labs, and the cost will be dependent on the particular test you need. I'd just pick up the phone and call a few places.
