Revised Hemoglobin A1c Assay
Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Laboratory Alliance of Central New York is pleased to announce that effective 10/22/2019, hemoglobin A1c will be measured using an update to our current assay. This meets the latest certification criteria for the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP) issued earlier this year.
The reference range is the same; however, the analytical measurement range will change to 3.8 - 14.0% from the current 3.5 - 16%. There are no changes to the collection, sample type, volume, handling, stability or methodology.
