Venous Blood Gas Sample Collection

The common practice in my center for vbg sample collection is to first collect venous blood in 10cc syringe and then transfer some into 1cc syringe flushed with heparin to run vbg sample. Some staff also practice to syringe out blood from lithium heparin tube into 1cc syringe for vbg. Is this practice suitable for vbg test? How is it done in your center? Please share.

Liquid Biopsy Testing

I was wondering if anyone knows what labs can do liquid biopsy for EGFR, ALK, ROS1 without doing million of other genes. I know that EGFR can be done on Roche Cobas and there are large commercial panels available for over 50 genes including those that I listed. However, currently, only few genes that are recommended for testing by professional societies. Please share.

StanBio Beta-Hydroxybutyrate

My lab has just upgraded to Siemens Atellica CH. BHB was built on our Siemen's XPT. We are having difficulty vaildating this assay on the Atellica and cannot get support from StanBio (no update on Siemens software) or Siemens (3rd party assay). Has anyone validated this assay on the Atellica's? Would you be willing to share your parameters? Please share.
