Test Name Titanium, Serum/Plasma 
Test Includes Titanium 
Purpose Exposure Monitoring/Investigation; This test is New York State approved.

Note: On 06/14/2013 a change in the method for measuring titanium in serum has resulted in a shift with the reported findings. To compare a previous finding to a current result, multiply the old value by 1.44 and then subtract 66 for an approximate corresponding new value. The reporting limit for the new method is 10 mcg/L; therefore, any measured value less than 10 mcg/L will be reported as 'None Detected'.
