Dear colleagues and collaborators,

Due to persistent problems with the supply of reagent for the determination of PROTEIN S (ANTIGEN), PLASMA, we are obliged to temporarily discontinue this test as of tomorrow 21st September.

We are sorry for the haste in this communication, as soon as we have a planned date of reactivation we will inform you.

As for the samples already received at our facilities, we will start releasing results from the beginning of next week, releasing first those from samples that may be compromised by stability in order to ensure their quality.

We remain at your disposal for any further clarification.
