Fluorescence Polarization Immunoassay (FPIA)
Monitoring of drug therapy
Therapeutic: Peak: 20 - 40 mcg/mL, Trough: 5 - 20 mcg/mL; Critical: Peak/Random values: >60 mcg/mL; Trough values: >20.1 mcg/mL.
STAT requests for this test will be performed on a STAT basis (supervisory staff approval is not required).
Collect blood in an SST tube. Centrifuge, aliquot serum into a plastic vial and refrigerate. For maximum clinical significance, usual sampling times are Peak: approximately 30 minutes after the end of a 1 hour I.V. infusion or Trough: immediately before next dose is given. Indicate whether specimen is Peak, Trough, or Random level.
