Delay in Renin Analysis

on Thursday, 02 November 2017. Posted in Blood Sciences, Biochemistry

Dear Colleague,

Ref: Notification of delay in measurement of Renin mass

We have been experiencing supply and quality issues with the kits we use for the determination of Renin Mass. This has led to a back log of samples. Therefore, there will be a delay in reporting of results.

After working with our supplier, we have kits on order that should allow us to work through this backlog and we should be able to start reporting results by the end of next week (10th Of November)

We have samples stored safely and if any are required urgently we can prioritise analysis or send on to another laboratory.

Please accept our apologies and If you would like any further information please contact Craig Webster or Joanne Duffy

 

Best Wishes
