ALERT: NEW CLINICAL CHEMISTRY TESTING PLATFORM

TriCore is transitioning to a new state-of-the-art clinical chemistry testing platform. As a result of this complex transition:
  • Turnaround time for routing testing from our Woodward Laboratory is approximately 36-48 hours.
  • Reference intervals (normal ranges) are changing. Changes are described  here.

Alert

We are currently unable to result urine tricyclic due to a reagent backorder. Stand-alone UTRICS orders will be canceled and the urine tricyclic component of our UDSCN and UDSCNR panels will be reported as "Test not performed due to reagent backorder." We anticipate resolution mid-July.

Important Info: Conversion to high-sensitivity Cardiac Troponin test
