eGFR New Recommendations
SEP.24.2021

Today, the National Kidney Foundation and American Society of Nephrology joint task force on "Reassessing the Inclusion of Race in Diagnosing Kidney Diseases" has officially completed its final recommendations and report. The final report was published online today in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN) and the American Journal of Kidney Diseases (AJKD). The Task Force recommends for U.S. adults (>85% of whom have normal kidney function) that the CKD-EPIcr_R equation that was developed without the use of the race variable be implemented immediately, including all laboratories. This new formula is: eGFR = 142 X min(Scr/k,1)α X max(Scr/k,1)-1.200 0.9938age X 1.012 [if female]

Migrating from Vitros to Atellica?
SEP.24.2021

I wanted to reach out to the group and see if there are any chemists out there that have successfully migrated from Vitros to Atellica? We're also simultaneously launching an hs-troponin assay at the same time. I also curious about your approach how you socialized the new reference ranges with your medical staff. I appreciate any insights or survivor stories!
