Vitamin D Deficiency

You believe what you see.

Until you see it differently.

Dr Lal PathLabs Introduces Gold Standard Technology for Diagnosing Vitamin D Levels: Vitamin D Epi-Gold test (Vitamin D by LCMS/MS) by Tandem Mass Spectrometry.


Why it is Gold standard?
  • Correct identification of 25(OH)D3 & 25(OH)D2 for proper treatment
  • Capability to overcome problems associated with protein binding assays
  • Internal standard usually compensates for any matrix related and instrumental defects


Advantages:

Dr Lal PathLabs offers Vitamin D Epi-Gold test (Vitamin D by LCMS/MS) with advantages over other leading laboratories-


DR LAL PATHLABS

LC-MS/MS test can:

  • Accurately identify and quantitate 25(OH)D3 & D2
  • Chromatographically separate Epi 25(OH)D3 & Epi 25(OH)D2
  • No Missed Deficiency Diagnosis

OTHER LEADING TESTING LABORATORY
  • Epimers are not quantified
  • Total vitamin 25(OH)D may be inflated to appear as normal
  • Diagnosis of deficiency can be missed

FACT FILE
  • Proper measurement of total Vitamin 25(OH)D:
  • Technique should detect both 25(OH)D2 & D3
  • Total should represent the total circulating amount of both Vitamin D2 & D3
  • Sub-standard Immunoassay Technology:

Present commonly used technology has 3 drawbacks:
  • Total circulating Vitamin 25(OH)D and equivalent detection of both 25(OH)D2 & D3 not possible
  • Binding protein shows a higher affinity for 25(OH)D3 than 25(OH)D2 hence these assays can measure only D3
  • Immunoassay for 25(OH)D have been reported to cross-react with 24, 25(OH)2 D3-an intermediate product during the formation of 1,25(OH)2D3 in the kidney
