Has anyone seen spikes of lipase values with patients/QC that repeat lower? We run the lipase method on Architect c16000s. What are your values?

Do you review "Miscellaneous Tests"?

For send-out tests that do not have an orderable in your HIS/LIS, how do you audit them (prospective or retrospective)? Do you have a process for reviewing or rejecting unnecessary miscellaneous tests?. Share your experience

DFS 70 ANA Patterns

Our laboratory has using the ICAP ANA classification, and has been reporting the ICAP AC-2 DFS70 ANA pattern for nearly 3 years.  We recommend follow up testing withan ENA profile that includes  specific anti-DFS70 and dsDNA testing-not DFS70 testing alone. We would like to know what other labs are doing with this new and important ANA pattern classification and DFS70-specific ANA testing. Grateful for your help
