Reference Range

Females age 12-45 yrs: 0.8 - 9.5 ng/mL, age >45 yrs: <1.0 ng/mL.
AMH performed in the Chemical Pathology Laboratory is measured by the Roche e411 chemiluminescent immunoassay. AMH concentrations in females peak at 25 years and decline with age until menopause. In patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome, AMH concentrations may be 2 to 5 fold higher than age appropriate reference levels. If results are inconsistent with the clinical picture, the Chemical Pathology laboratory at 936-6702.
