New white paper - Vitamin D Harmonization

Healthcare News | 2012-07-24



Understanding the Challenges of Vitamin D Harmonization

Vitamin D test volumes continue to grow rapidly. Historically, there have been variations in vitamin D values among different manufacturers and methodologies, due to the lack of an official vitamin D standard. A new white paper brings experts from around the world together to address questions regarding the impact of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) on the present and future of vitamin D harmonization.

Experts from the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany, and the United States weigh in on key vitamin D testing issues facing today's clinicians:

- How can we improve the harmonization of LC-MS/MS?

- What is likely to be the consensus standard in the future?

- How can labs feel confident in their vitamin D results?

Laboratories can now meet the demands of increased vitamin D testing by consolidating their testing on the fully automated, high-throughput ADVIA Centaur® XP immunoassay system. The Siemens' Vitamin D Total assy provides accurate total 25(OH) vitamin D (D2 and D3) results in as little as 18 minutes.
