This test includes serial monitoring.
5 - 12 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
For more information, please view the literature below.
Serum or plasma (EDTA)
Serum-gel tube, red-top tube, or lavender top (EDTA) tube
Serum/plasma must be separated from cells within 45 minutes of venipuncture. Send serum/plasma in a plastic transport tube. To avoid delays in turnaround time when requesting multiple test on frozen samples, please submit seperate frozen specimens for each test requested.
Gross hemolysis, gross lipemia
Failure of golimumab therapy may not always be due to the presence of anti-golimumab antibodies. Conversely, the absence of anti-golimumab antibodies does not guarantee response to treatment.
Golimumab drug level: <0.5 μg/mL
• Result ≥0.5 μg/mL indicates detection of golimumab
• In the presence of serum anti-golimumab antibodies, the golimumab drug level reflects the antibody-unbound (free) fraction of golimumab in serum.
Anti-golimumab antibody: <20 ng/mL
• Result ≥20ng/mL indicates detection of anti-golimumab antibodies.
