7. "Forensic" means relating to the use of science or technology in the investigation and establishment of facts or evidence intended for use in a court of law.

8. "Guardian" means an individual appointed as a legal guardian by a court of competent jurisdiction.

9. "Health screening laboratory services" means health screening services that determine the need for medical services, as defined in A.R.S. § 36-401, through the performance of laboratory analyses.

10. "Health screening services" means the same as in A.R.S. § 36-401.

11. "Home health aide" means an individual who receives monetary compensation from a home health agency, as defined in A.R.S. § 36-151, or a hospice service agency, as defined in A.R.S. § 36-401, to provide assistance to another individual who is not physically or mentally able to perform one or more of the activities of daily living.

12. "In vitro diagnostic device" means a piece of equipment or tool:

a. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for home use,

b. Used for the measurement of specific chemicals in materials derived from the human body,

c. Sold without a prescription, and

d. Specified in a list available at http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfIVD/Search.cfm.

13. "Laboratory analysis" means a test performed by a laboratory on body fluid, tissue, or excretion for the purpose of determining the presence, absence, or concentration of various substances in the human body.

14. "Research" means a systematic investigation to establish facts that may contribute to knowledge from which an individual may draw inferences or a general conclusion.

B. Except as specified in subsection (C), only a certified laboratory shall perform health screening laboratory services.

C. This Section does not apply when:

1. A test is performed by an individual, a family member or guardian of the individual, or another individual under A.R.S. § 32-1471:

a. Using an in vitro diagnostic device, and

b. On materials derived from the individual's body;
