Effects of long-term storage of filter paper blood samples on neonatal thyroid stimulating hormone, thyroxin and 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone measurements.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Clinical laboratories store filter paper samples used in neonatal screening for various periods of time after performing hormonal measurements. However, due to lack of data concerning specimen stability, it is unclear for how long these samples should be stored. The objective of this study is to determine the stability and reproducibility of… (More)
