Italian translation:esami ematochimici
Explanation:
Chem. 13 credo sia riferito al cosiddetto Chemistry-screen, più o meno corrispondente ai nostri esami ematochimici, in cui vengono analizzate una serie di sostanza nel sangue (elettroliti, glucosio, ecc). Il numero è relativo al numero di sostanze la cui analisi è richiesta:

A chemistry screen is a test that measures the levels of several substances (such as electrolytes) in the blood. A chemistry screen provides information about your general state of health and helps your health professional detect certain abnormalities or determine whether treatment for a specific problem is effective. A chemistry screen is done on a blood sample taken from a vein.

There are several variations of a chemistry screen test. The most complete form of a chemistry screen (called a chem-20, SMA-20, or SMAC-20) measures 20 substances in the blood. Other types of chemistry screens (such as an SMA-6, SMA-7, or SMA-12) measure fewer substances. The type of chemistry screen you have done depends on which substances your health professional wants to evaluate.
