The Artery is your community for finding solutions to your day-to-day clinical chemistry questions. Last month, several answers were found to questions ranging from "Is an amylase assay necessary if a lab already has a lipase assay?" to “How does your lab handle cystatin C utilization?".  Read on for the most discussed on the Artery in September.
