Interpretive Data

This assay has been cleared by the FDA for use on serum samples.  ARUP has validated it for use on I.V. fluid specimens.  This test is intended to provide an estimate of the insulin concentration in I.V. fluid samples for medical purposes.  Accuracy of the result may be decreased in the presence of high insulin concentrations and/or other substances present in the I.V. fluid.  Please note that the result is in units of µIU/mL.  To convert an Insulin I.V. fluid result to IU/mL, divide the results in µIU/mL by 1,000,000.

This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. This test was performed in a CLIA certified laboratory and is intended for clinical purposes.
