This panel is restricted to Males Only. It utilizes the Males Only Testosterone test which is not designed to be performed on females. The Males Only Testosterone test will result out faster than the LC/MS/MS Testosterone test included in many other panels, and will provide actual results for levels up to 3,000.
FEMALES needing to order these specific tests from Quest will need to order the 'Hormone Panel with Testosterone LC/MS-MS'.
Use of synthetic steroids, various supplements and/or high doses of biotin may interfere with the accuracy of the standard immunoassay Testosterone Total serum test included in this panel. If you are taking any of these it is recommended that you order a panel that includes the Testosterone LC/MS-MS methodology for testing.
This testosterone test will provide actual results for levels up to 3,000.
This is a Male Only test, it cannot be ordered by females. If a female orders this panel, the testosterone test will not be included on the requisition or performed at the lab.
Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.

Patient should fast for 12 hours preceding collection of specimen. Fasting is defined as no consumption of food or beverage other than water for at least 12 hours before testing. If using a testosterone cream please be sure you have not rubbed any into the antecubital area of your arm for the last 24 hours as it can give elevated results. Some tests in this panel may exhibit interference when sample is collected from a person who is consuming a supplement with a high dose of biotin (also termed as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H or coenzyme R). Patient should be cautioned to stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.
