Comprehensive Analysis: Industry-Leading Interpretation
Healthcare practitioners and researchers alike can take full advantage of the most advanced, comprehensive steroid hormone level testing available today. Experts understand the importance of the delicate balance inherent in steroid hormone production and metabolism. Complex, ever-changing hormonal interactivity demands that sampling techniques yield results which are accurate, relevant and reproducible.
Professionals appreciate the superiority of the 24-hour USHP over the narrow, scientifically dubious results derived from saliva and blood-spot sampling techniques. These tests are promoted by many hormone-imbalance supplement sellers and their affiliated lab facilities (a common but questionable business arrangement that can easily create conflict of interest). Not only are saliva sampling and blood sampling methods prone to technical problems; they also cannot provide an integrated measure of daily hormone production. A blood or saliva sample represents only a moment in time, rather than the full picture of multiple hormones’ production, interactions, and level over time, as revealed by Rhein Labs’ 24-hour USHP.
Why Urine Sampling?
Rhein Labs utilizes the scientifically superior assay matrix of a 24-hour urine sample. Why? Because only a urine sample provides the information needed to assess the full range of hormone levels and interactions throughout the full 24-hour cycle. When you combine this advantage with Rhein Labs’ industry-leading analytical and interpretive expertise, you benefit from the most in-depth, cost-effective hormone profiling available today.
Combining this advantage of comprehensive, accurate measurement with Rhein Labs’ industry-leading analysis and interpretation expertise gives healthcare providers and researchers alike a new team member. Only Rhein Labs can offer a research or provider team the most in-depth, cost-effective hormone profiling anywhere.
Rhein expert staff is certified in Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) disciplines. You benefit from procedural efficiencies and the scientific consistency of the profiling results they produce. Rhein Labs is federally regulated and certified under CLIA 88 and fully compliant with all requirements thereof. Rhein Labs participates in proficiency testing as provided by the American Proficiency Institute (API) and American Association of Bioanalysts (AAB). Never patronize a lab not certified by CLIA 88.
Cients consistently praise the ease of interface with Rhein Labs staff for all transactions. Consultation surrounding individual patients’ results is fully available and invaluable in maximizing the understanding and benefits of hormone profiling.
