Intraoperative PTH Volume?

How many IO-PTHs do others run at their hospitals, and at what volume does it make sense to have a stat lab for this test? Other institutes run anywhere from 1-2 per week to 1-2 per day. Labs in the 1-2 per week range run their IO-PTHs in the main lab, while labs close to the 1-2 per day range tend to run their IO-PTHs either on a mobile lab cart (with the main lab serving as the backup) or in a stat lab near the OR.
