Specimen Stability Information
Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the performing laboratory, alternate acceptable temperatures are also included
Discusses physiology, pathophysiology, and general clinical aspects, as they relate to a laboratory test
Isavuconazole is for the treatment of life threatening fungal infections, specifically invasive aspergillosis and invasive mucormycosis. There is a significant need for alternative antifungal therapies that address some of the limitations of voriconazole, such as reduced potential for nephrotoxicity for the intravenous formulation, in addition to other dose-related toxicities. Given the difficulty in diagnosis and similarity with which infections may present, having an antifungal that is effective for both indications would be particularly useful to physicians treating immunocompromised patients.
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Isavuconazole is extracted by protein precipitation with methanol followed by centrifugation. Chromatographic separation and quantitative analysis of the supernatant are performed using reversed-phase UPLC-MS/MS.
