Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing

Serum Red

Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.

Draw blood in a plain, red-top tube(s). Allow blood to clot and separate with one hour. Send 1 mL of serum frozen in plastic vial.

 

Complete and submit with specimen:

1.     National Jewish ADxImmunology request form.

 

NOTE:  1. Serum gel tube is acceptable, but must pour off into a plastic screw cap vial and freeze.

            2. Patients date of birth is required on request form for processing.

Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.

0.5 mL
