Test ID: VANRA    
Vancomycin, Random, Serum

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

The assay is based on the kinetic interaction of microparticles in solution (KIMS). Vancomycin antibody is covalently coupled to microparticles and the derivative is linked to a macromolecule. The kinetic interaction of microparticles in solutions is induced by binding of drug-conjugate to the antibody on the microparticles and is inhibited by the presence of vancomycin in the sample. A competitive reaction takes place between the drug conjugate and vancomycin in the sample. A competitive reaction takes place between the drug conjugate and vancomycin in the serum sample for binding to the vancomycin antibody on the microparticles. The resulting kinetic interaction of microparticles is indirectly proportional to the amount of drug present in the sample.(Package insert: Roche Vancomycin reagent, Roche Diagnostic Corp, Indianapolis, IN.  2016-09 Ver. 1)

Day(s) Performed Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Monday through Sunday

Report Available The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

Same day/1 to 2 days

Performing Laboratory Location Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test
