Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
The instrument used is a Vitros 350. Lactate in the specimen is oxidized by lactate oxidase to pyruvate and hydrogen peroxide. The generated hydrogen peroxide oxidizes the 4-aminoantipyrine, 1,7-dihydroxynaphthlaene dye system in a horseradish peroxidase-catalyzed reaction and results in a dye complex. Each mole of lactate oxidized results in 0.5 mole of the dye complex. The specimen is incubated at 37 degrees C for 5 minutes and the intensity of the dye complex is measured spectrophotometrically at 540 nm.( Package insert: Vitros Chemistry Products Instructions for Use - LAC, Version 7.0 Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Inc.

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.
