Test ID: INHB    
Inhibin B, Serum

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

Inhibin B Gen II ELISA is an enzymatically amplified 3-step "sandwich'' assay. Sample is incubated in wells that have been coated with anti-activin B antibody. After incubation and washing, the wells are incubated with biotinylated anti-inhibin detection antibody. After a second incubation and washing step, the wells are incubated with streptavidin labeled with the enzyme horseradish peroxidase. Antibody-analyte complex is detected by dual wavelength absorbance measurement after addition of the tetramethylbenzidine substrate. The absorbance measured is directly proportional to the concentration of inhibin B in the samples.(Package insert: Inhibin B Gen II ELISA kit, Beckman Coulter, Inc. 03/2018)

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, Wednesday, Friday

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 day to 6 days

Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

3 months

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