Lab Memo - Estradiol Testing in Patients Receiving Fulvestrant

An urgent product notification was recently issued by Ortho Clinical Diagnostics. For UNC Medical Center and UNC Physicians Network patients NOT receiving fulvestrant therapy, estradiol testing will continue to be performed in UNC Hospitals Core Laboratory. For patients receiving fulvestrant therapy, estradiol testing by mass spectrometry (send-out test) is recommended to minimize any analytical interference.
