Antimullerian Hormone (AMH), Serum

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

This test is performed by enzymatically amplified 2-site immunoassay using the Beckman Coulter Generation II kit. Samples, controls, and calibrators are incubated in microtiter wells coated with anti-antimullerian hormone (anti-AMH) antibody. After incubation and washing, biotin-labeled anti-AMH antibody is added. Streptavidin-horseradish peroxidase is added after a second incubation and wash. After a third incubation and wash, the substrate tetramethylbenzidine is added. Dual wavelength absorbance measurement at 450 nm and between 600 and 630 nm is directly proportional to the concentration of AMH in the sample.(Package insert: Beckman Coulter, Inc., Fullerton, CA, 2009)

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; Varies

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.

One day/same day

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

4 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
