    Help me with this

    What is the correct preposition, "on either urinary analysis and ECG test ..." OR "in either urinary analysis and ECG test..."

    I appreciate very much your help regarding this.

    On would refer to the paper report.
    In would refer to the test itself.

    I medicine, both are used.

    In your urinalysis or ECG refers to the actual test.
    On your urinalysis or ECG refers to the report or the printout.
