NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.
Direct Radioimmunoassay (RIA)
Reporting Name A shorter/abbreviated version of the Published Name for a test; an abbreviated test name
Cholechstokinin (CCK) FORWARD
Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing
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.
Container/Tube: Special tube containing G.I. preservative (MML Supply T125)
Specimen Volume: 3 mL
1. Patient should fast for 10 to 12 hours prior to collection.
2. Collect 10 mL of blood in special tube.
3. Specimen should be separated immediately and plasma frozen as soon as possible.
Additional Information: Antacid medications and medications that affect intestinal motility should be discontinued, if possible, for at least 48 hours prior to collection.
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.
Warm reject; Cold reject
Specimen Stability Information Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the laboratory. Alternate acceptable temperature(s) are also included.

Clinical Information Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test
Cholecystokinin is a 33 amino acid peptide having a very similar structure to Gastrin. Cholecystokinin is present in several different sized forms including a 58 peptide Pro-CCK and 22, 12, and 8 peptide metabolites. The octapeptide retains full activity of the 33 peptide molecule. Cholecystokinin has an important hysiological role in the regulation of pancreatic secretion, gallbladder contraction and intestinal motility. Cholecystokinin levels are elevated by dietary fat especially in diabetics. Elevated levels are seen in hepatic cirrhosis patients. Cholecystokinin is found in high levels in the gut, in the brain and throughout the central nervous system.
Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
Varies, Monday through Friday
Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.
5 - 7 days
Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result
7 - 11 days
Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test
Inter Science Institute
Test Classification Provides information regarding the medical device classification for laboratory test kits and reagents. Tests may be classified as cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used per manufacturer's instructions, or as products that do not undergo full FDA review and approval, and are then labeled as an Analyte Specific Reagent (ASR), Investigation Use Only (IUO) product, or a Research Use Only (RUO) product.
