November 2019 Test Bulletin

November 13, 2019

Alverno Laboratories introduces in-house Anti-Mullerian Hormone testing, providing a faster turnaround time for assessing reproductive health in women. This hormone's levels diminish with age, reflecting the decline in ovarian reserve, and can aid in fertility evaluations and predicting menopause onset. Additionally, starting December 1, 2019, ARUP, the reference laboratory, mandates trace element specimens like aluminum and zinc be transported in certified metals-free tubes to maintain accuracy, emphasizing meticulous handling and processing protocols to prevent contamination.
