Stability
Ambient: Unacceptable; Refrigerated: 5 days; Frozen: Unacceptable  
Reference Interval
14.7-25.4 U/g Hb  
Interpretive Data
One U/g Hb is equivalent to one umol/hour/gram of hemoglobin (umol/hr/g Hb).

Note:
Values for enzyme activity only may not differentiate between variant form of galactosemia or carriers. For a more accurate evaluation of patients suspected to have galactosemia, the preferred test is Galactosemia (GALT) Enzyme Activity and 9 Mutations (ARUP test code 0051175). To monitor therapy in patients with galactosemia, order Galactose-1-Phosphate in Red Blood Cells (ARUP test code 0081296).

See Compliance Statement B: www.aruplab.com/CS
Statement B: This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions.
 
Note
Enzyme activity only may not differentiate variant form of galactosemia or carriers.  For a more accurate evaluation of patients suspected to have galactosemia the preferred test is Galactosemia, Panel (0051175). To monitor therapy in patients with galactosemia, order Galactose-1-Phosphate in Red Blood Cells (0081296).
