ATTENTION CLIENTS:  

Effective 4/12/2021, the semi-quantitative D-Dimer will be replaced with a Quantitative D-Dimer test in our DIC Screen.  Our new panel is called DIC Screen 2 and the service code is 6376.  The CPT codes for the new panel are the same except code 85379 is replacing 85378.

 

Effective 3/26/2021, due to a nationwide shortage of reagents, we are unable to perform molecular testing for the Prothrombin Gene Variant and the MTHFR Gene Variant C677T.  This testing is discontinued until further notice.
