(bī'ō-kem'i-kăl prō'fīl)
A combination of biochemical tests usually performed with automated instrumentation.


a simple outline, as of the side view of the body or head; by extension, a graph representing quantitatively a set of characteristics determined by tests. In animals the same purpose may be served by photographing it against a grid background. Profiles are used to determine an animal's conformational similarity to a standard set by a breed society and, especially in ruminants, as an aid to the diagnosis of diseases of the abdomen.

biochemical profile
a panel of tests, usually selected for their ability in the particular species to evaluate the functional capacity of several critical organ systems and general health. The 'profile' may literally be the results plotted on individual, parallel numerical scales, producing a pattern similar to a bar graph.
cost-benefit profile
a written or graphic description of the costs and production returns of an animal enterprise, set out according to a set of standard indices and parameters so that inter-herd comparisons are facilitated. A standard feature in modern animal health and production programs.
