Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

Inhibin B Gen II ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is an enzymatically amplified 3-step "sandwich'' assay. Sample is incubated in wells that have been coated with antiactivin B antibody. After incubation and washing, the wells are incubated with biotinylated anti-inhibin detection antibody. After a second incubation and washing step, the wells are incubated with streptavidin labeled with the enzyme horseradish peroxidase. Antibody-analyte complex is detected by dual wavelength absorbance measurement after addition of the tetramethylbenzidine substrate. The absorbance measured is directly proportional to the concentration of inhibin B in the samples.(Package insert: Inhibin B Gen II ELISA kit, Beckman Coulter, Inc. Brea, CA)

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.

Tuesday, Thursday; 9:00 a.m.

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.

1 day/same day

Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result

6 days

Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

3 months

Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test

Rochester
