New Chemistry And Immunochemistry Analyzers – An Update

As part of the continued integration of the LifeLabs and CML laboratories and standardization of lab methods and reporting, LifeLabs has introduced new instrumentation for routine Chemistry and Immunochemistry testing.

  • Transition to the new line of instruments began in mid-August, 2016 and is occurring in phases across the province. Standardization of immunochemistry testing will be completed by the end of December 2016. Standardization of routine chemistry testing will be completed by the end of December 2016 at our two Toronto labs and, by summer 2017,
    for the remainder of the labs in Sudbury, Thunder Bay and Belleville.
  • At the appropriate time, a message will appear on lab reports to indicate that the change has taken place.
  • Please refer to the reference intervals accompanying the patient report for result interpretation. A complete list of tests being converted is posted on our website.
