Upcoming Changes In Chemistry

Policy Change: Add-on Testing for HCG and PCT

Due to the sensitivity of our Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and Procalcitonin (PCT) assays performed in the CompuNet Chemistry lab, testing can no longer be added on to specimens that have been previously tested. When submitting a new order in Epic, it will require a new specimen collection. This policy change went into effect on July 26, 2023.

Methodology Change: Tumor Markers

CompuNet will be switching chemistry instrumentation and methodology for tumor marker testing later this fall. In general, tumor marker values from different assay methods and instruments are not interchangeable due to differences in calibration, antibody specificity, and assay design. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that clinicians re-establish baseline tumor marker levels on the new method for AFP, CEA, CA 125, CA 15-3 and CA 19-9. Prior to the methodology change, the laboratory will have a re-baseline period during which we will automatically perform and report results from both instrument platforms to help clinicians evaluate the differences between the methods. The re-baseline will be at no additional charge to the patient.
