Inhibin A, Tumor Marker, Serum
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
The instrument used is a Beckman Coulter Unicel DXI 800. The Access Inhibin A assay is a sequential 2-step immunoenzymatic ("sandwich'') assay. Sample is added to a reaction vessel and incubated with paramagnetic particles coupled with anti-inhibin A monoclonal antibody. Excess sample and reagents are removed and anti-inhibin A monoclonal antibody-alkaline phosphatase conjugate is then added to a reaction mixture. After incubation, unbound materials are washed away. Antibody-analyte complex is detected by addition of the chemiluminescent substrate Lumi-Phos* 530. The light production is directly proportional to the concentration of inhibin A in the sample.(Package insert: Beckman Coulter Inc, Fullerton, CA, 2010)

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.
Monday through Friday; 5 a.m.-12 a.m.
Saturday; 6 a.m.-6 p.m
