Please ensure all required information, including patient's clinical history/indication, is provided on the requisition.
Order Restrictions:None
Indications:This dipstick screening test is for the investigation of patients suspected of having isolated sulfite oxidase or molybdenum co-factor deficiencies based on clinical presentation.
