This is a recorded version of the AACC webinar "An
Update on Clinical Applications for Vitamin D Testing" which was originally
held January 26, 2012. Vitamin D is a high-volume assay in clinical laboratories
around the world, but proper application of test results requires some caveats
for health care professionals. Laboratorians must manage the standardization
issues and analytical challenges involved in this type of testing, and must also
understand the expectations of their clinical colleagues for vitamin D testing.
Likewise, clinicians would be well advised to appreciate how assay
standardization and biological variability can affect vitamin D test results and
the implications in applying those results to patient management. Listen as our
experts provide advice on how to address the challenges involved in performing
vitamin D testing.
