Quantitative testing conducted with the use of an LC-MS/MS spectrometer machine allows the clinician to trend using actual concentrations over a course of time. This is to ensure that either a consistent level of medication is within the individual’s system as required, or if testing a substance of abuse that the concentrations are decreasing over a period of time. Each metabolite has a varying degree to which it is broken down or excreted from the human body. This technology allows the individual levels to be followed for progress.
Qualitative testing is conducted using chemistry analyzers and Point of Care testing. Testing conducted within reference labs like Trilab are done using chemistry analyzers in either 1, 2, 3, or 5-point calibration, giving the lab semi-quantitative results that are generally reported only as Positive and Negative Values.
Trilab also offers clinicians the option to use Medication Adherence Panels (MAPs) and Treatment Adherence Panels (TAPs) as more comprehensive and customized tools to provide optimized care to their clients.
Trilab is always on the cutting edge of research and continuously looking to add metabolites.
Customizable panels are available.
