Laboratorians Play a Vital Role in Vitamin D Testing

Healthcare News | 2012-02-13

Vitamin D testing volumes continue to grow, making it one of the most commonly requested tests, with laboratorians playing a critical role in patient management. With automated assays typically being the best choice for many laboratories, when implementing a new methodology it is important to include clinical concordance to LC/MS/MS as an evaluation criteria to ensure correct assessment of vitamin D status.


Highly accurate, reproducible results in 18 minutes

Two independent method comparison studies demonstrated concordance between the Siemens ADVIA Centaur® Vitamin D Total assay and LC/MS/MS. The Siemens Vitamin D Total assay provides accurate total 25(OH) vitamin D (D2 and D3) results in 18 minutes, allowing laboratories to meet the growing demands of vitamin D testing by consolidating their testing on the fully automated, high-throughput ADVIA Centaur immunoassay system.

Results you can trust

By providing total measurement of vitamin D2 and D3, labs can deliver accurate results to physicians, without sacrificing accuracy or efficiency. At a time when test demand is increasing and labs are under pressure to cut costs, consolidating vitamin D testing on your primary analyzer can help save time and money while improving diagnostic capabilities.
