Blood Lead Analysis

Friday, July 6, 2018

AHDC laboratory methodology for blood lead is not affected by the issue described in the 3/22/18 alert from BD Life Sciences related to BD vacutainer tubes, and the original alert from the FDA released on 5/17/2017, which can be viewed at https://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/alertsandNotices/ucm558733.htm.

Our laboratory has not used the named brand of blood lead analyzer, nor does it use an affected methodology.

Thank you for your continued confidence in our laboratory. We are always happy to address questions related to testing methodology or reliability.
