On November 11th, 2008, the Wilson Hospital Chemistry Laboratory will be going live with new Chemistry equipment, the Siemens Vista. This equipment will represent a consolidation of four existing instruments currently in use for chemistry testing. However, slight variations in methodology may result in small alterations of existing reference, or normal ranges, for a small number of clinical chemistry tests. As a result, patient reports for testing performed at the Wilson Lab may show slight differences in existing reference ranges, but these differences have been determined by the lab to not be clinically significant.
Should there be any questions, please contact the Chemistry Supervisor, Angela K. Armato, MT, MBA, at 763-5780.
