When you order the TC90881, you should get 2 results.( 1 with the new method and 1 with the old method.)

The purpose for the TC90881 is to so you can establish a new Baseline for the patients that you are monitoring with the Old method vs the new method. I will warn you that this is a temporary test code(If I remember correctly, Jan 5, 2012 is the last day they are supposed to offer it.) The Ultrasensitive test can be used for all ages if needed.

My new APN ordered the 4021 today, is there some other e2 besides this 4021? I asked for 4021x but they said that was in another region.
