Special Instructions

The account must submit the patient's Social Security number to monitor. In order to receive more clinically-useful serial results, submit the same specimen type each time this procedure is ordered. Values obtained with different assay methods should not be used interchangeably in serial testing. It is recommended that only one assay method be used consistently to monitor each patient's course of therapy. To order this test without the serial monitor service, order test 100313.
