LifeLabs removing arthritis test JOINTstat™ from its test menu

July 9 2019
Effective August 6th, 2019, the JOINTstat™ test for arthritis will be removed from the LifeLabs test menu.

Effective August 6th, 2019, we will be removing the JOINTstat™ test for arthritis from the LifeLabs test menu. This decision follows a recent review of our testing menu, which is done periodically to ensure it reflects the clinical needs of patients and health care practitioners. 

At this time, no other test will be added to replace JOINTstat™.

Those looking to access the test are asked to contact Augurex, the parent company of JOINTstat™, through one of the following methods:

Until August 6th, patients and physicians can continue to obtain JOINTstat™ through LifeLabs locations as usual.
