    Question for Canadians


    Does anyone know of labs in Canada that run ultrasensitive Estradiol (E2) assays like Quest and Rhein in the States? I haven't heard a response from Rhein yet about whether they process Canadian samples, but also am wondering what my fellow canucks do about obtaining accurate E2 readings. (I'm in Montreal, specifically, so anything near here is a bonus.)

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the responses, guys. JanSz, I was checking out Genova's Estroessence test, but I can't seem to find out: 1) if it can be ordered as a standalone test, and 2) What their costs are. Any ideas? Have you done this test with them? (Also are you in Canada?) I appreciate your help.

    Ok, for anyone else who might be wondering in the future about this, I heard back from Ingrid at Rhein Labs and she said that they do process Canadian samples. It's 25$ extra for the shipping, so including the 225$ for the regular full panel of tests the total is 250$. Could not figure out what the cost of anything from Genova is, but from some snooping around the web it seemed to be indicated that they were pricey overall. Not positive though.
