Effective immediately, the Chemistry Laboratory at WMH will be discontinuing all body fluid Chemistry testing performed in-house.
This change will NOT affect the current chemistry testing performed in-house on Urines or CSF.
This change is being made in response to manufacturer recommendations for testing.
The following tests (16 in all) will now be performed at our reference laboratory. The reference laboratory requires that all fluid specimens be collected in sterile container(s)/cup(s) or no additive tube(s):
Fluid Lactic Acid
Fluid Total Bilirubin
Fluid Total Protein
Fluid Uric Acid
Fluid Urea Nitrogen
Questions should be directed to WMH Chemistry Supervisor, Angela K. Armato, at 763-5780, or Laboratory Medical Director, Dr. Jagmohan Sidhu, MD, at 763-5780. Thank you.
