Urine Analysis Issues
There has been an unexpected delay in the analysis of routine urine samples. This has led to us having to reject a number of samples for analysis.
We have been working to determine exact stability of each analyte and have found urine albumin to be less than had previously been established which has contributed to the increased the number of samples we have had to reject. We would like to apologise for this delay and any inconvenience it may cause for you and your patients.
Please be assured that this incident has been fully investigated and processes have been put in place to stop such an incident occurring in the future.
