Serum folate (folic acid) is a test that is commonly used to monitor folic acid status. Although it is frequently used, the results can be variable. When trying to uncover the cause of an anemia, an RBC folate assay should be performed instead as it more accurately reflects folate levels at the time the RBC was produced.
