New Tests


May 2015


New tests are continually developed by the clinical and research laboratories of Mayo Clinic. These tests are subjected to an intense laboratory and clinical correlative process to ensure their diagnostic utility prior to their release.

Significant new test announcements are included with each Communiqué issue to provide both clinical and technical information in a single document.

The following tests are described in this month's Communiqué:
