Due to kit supply issues, there will be a delay in processing samples for anti-Double stranded-DNA antibodies in the Infection & Immunity Laboratory at Charing Cross.
We have been in contact with the supplier to chase up pending orders and have just been informed that there appears to be a pan-European shortage of kits. Delivery is not expected until mid December 2016.
If you have concerns about testing for specific patients, please contact the Infection & Immunity laboratory on 0203 311 0130 to discuss what can be arranged.
We would appreciate it if you could inform any of your colleagues who may need to be made aware of this issue.
