Sex Hormone Measurement: How Evolving Technology Has Improved Test Accuracy, Precision and Reproducibility
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 theÂ thinking behindÂ 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
