**URGENT** ACETONE TESTING UPDATE

Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 3:31:09 PM

Effective immediately, the Laboratories at Wilson and Binghamton General Hospital are temporarily unable to perform serum Acetone testing, due to an indefinite national reagent backorder.

As this is a national backorder, there are no other area labs which can serve as an alternate facility for this test.

Alternate testing may be referred to our main reference lab with results available in approximately 2-3 days.

Please be aware that urine ketone testing is still available as an individual order or as part of a urinalysis.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact Angela K. Armato, MT, MBA (WMH Chemistry Supervisor) at 763-5780. Thank you.
