Over the years, we have found that many of our customers and clients, requesting tests, did not know what they were, their purpose or what the information could or would do for them. With that in mind, starting in Jan 2010, we will be publishing a “newsletter” here covering the issues listed below and more. If you have a question concerning a test or procedure you would like to know more about, just email us and we can include your topic.
