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.
Information must include weeks of gestation. If the AFP (amniotic fluid) is elevated, then Acetylcholinesterase will be added. Additional charges apply. Acetylcholinesterase testing requires an additional 3-11 days to be reported.
