but in some cases at least, you would presumably agree that the panel
analytes taken together provide a useful picture. E.g. docs tend to read
a lipids panel as a panel, not just (say) the total cholesterol, but the
HDL / LDL / ratio (or whatever the current science says matters!); same
for a blood panel...
So, having that panel which was performed from the same sample, taken at
a certain time is what ties them together, not just the order.
