Our Free-T4 (by equilibrium dialysis) testing is delayed due to the USA supplier experiencing issues with shipping radioactive materials to New Zealand.
We have been advised that the kit will be dispatched this week and we can expect to receive the kit within 2 weeks of dispatch (pending quick clearance through customs). If required, we can subcontract testing in the interim to another lab in NZ who use an immunological assay.
Unfortunately due to the short shelf life of the radioactive materials in the test kit, we are unable to carry back up kits, so we will store samples frozen until the new test kits have been received.
We apologise for any inconvenience this delay may cause. If you have any questions, please contact your local Gribbles laboratory.
