The Essence: The Best of September 2022
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.
Amylase, Lipase, or Both?
Arterians gave a new AACC member a warm welcome with valuable answers to her first question on the Open Forum. Is an amylase assay necessary if a lab already has a lipase assay? Say hello to our new member and offer your advice surrounding this question.
Utilizing Cystatin C
@David Alter, MD DABCC
How does your lab handle cystatin C utilization? Does your lab perform tests in house, or do you send them out? Laboratorians weigh in with helpful answers.
