Description:

Ronald Swerdloff, MD, and our own Nigel J. Clarke, PhD, present a balanced look at both the laboratory and clinical requirements of the new JCEM editorial regarding sex hormone testing and the new mass spectrometry-based assays for measurement.


At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:



  • Understand the thinking behind the JCEM editorial regarding sex hormone testing
    Comprehend the reason why mass spectrometry was chosen over immunoassays

  • Be aware of the other bodies/groups and their work in the area of sex hormone/steroid assay harmonization
