Community referred laboratory services update
The transition of community referred laboratory services in the Auckland area is progressing.
Albumin Method Change
LabPLUS is changing to the Bromcrescol Purple (BCP) assay in our measurement of albumin in plasma, serum and pleural or ascitic fluids. Results will be on average lower by 4-5g/L and a new reference interval for serum albumin and globulin will apply. A new formula will be applied for calculation of corrected calcium. Urine albumin will NOT be affected. Further details are available on our TestGuide or by contacting our chemical pathologist.
