Upon receipt at our national laboratory near Denver, Colorado, patient specimens are submitted to our quality control department. While under review for informational and specimen integrity, specimens are accessioned, and follow-up calls to clinics are made as necessary.

Upon successful quality control review, patient specimens are batched, and released to the laboratory for analysis. Patient specimens are analyzed via state-of-the-art inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) laboratory instrumentation. Once in the laboratory, turnaround time for specimen analysis is typically one to two business days after receipt.

Following successful analysis, blood lead test results are reported to the submitting facility by either secure web portal or automated fax (or both).

Tamarac® Medical can report to state childhood lead poisoning prevention programs (CLPPPs) or surveillance agencies in a variety of different state-specified formats: HL7, .csv, fixed width .txt, and excel are the most common format alternatives.
