Pediatric Test Reference Values 5% Based on Tanner Stage

Slide 11

May 2008

And finally, there is a fast growing area of endocrinology testing where it is really not a chronological age that matters but rather the tanner staging of the patient. And you can see here an example for DHEA in serum and you can see that there are actually two different types that have the reference ranges based on age but the one really applicable to clinical practice are listed below in this case the slide only shows the reference values for males based on tanner stages from 1-5. And 5% of our tests are actually now based or rely on pediatric reference values based on tanner staging. This is likely to grow as we develop more tests and improve our current portfolio reference values.
