MMP; 6 Methylmercaptopurine
Turn Around Time
- 6-Methylmercatopurine levels are reflex tested in all specimens where 6-Thioguanine Nucleotides (6-TGN) levels are < 200 pmol/8x10e8 RBCs as an indicator of potential toxicity.
- Where 6-TGN and 6-MMP are being measured concurrently a single EDTA sample is sufficient.
- DO NOT centrifuge; whole blood required
- DO NOT freeze
- Sample greater than 4 days old on receipt in CHL will be rejected
