Commentary on Unexpected Fentanyl Detection during a Liver Transplant Evaluation
This case highlights the potential consequences that false-positive (FP) urine drug screen (UDS) results can have on patient care and reinforces the need to confirm preliminary screen results with a direct method, such as liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Rather than act on the unexpected results, the transplant team appropriately consulted the laboratory and confirmatory…
The Regulatory Landscape of Laboratory Developed Tests
The clinical laboratory is a vital component of the healthcare system, providing a wide range of services to help diagnose, treat, and manage patients.
Beyond Test Results:
Laboratories serve as valuable clinical partners in patient care, employing lab data and domain knowledge to identify risks and care gaps within a population. By evaluating trends and developing guideline-derived algorithms to identify and manage health conditions, laboratories create models to support clinical decisions.
