Our NHS Laboratory

We are a large NHS Pathology Department in Birmingham, UK. We analyse around 100,000 vitamin D tests a year using LC- MS/MS techniques. We measure both Vitamin D3 and D2 giving a ‘Total Vitamin D’ level. Our Vitamin D test service to the public has been operating since 2011 and carries a CE mark. Results are closely aligned to serum results produced by LC- MS/MS. Ranges for serum and blood spot are comparable.
