Therapeutic Drug Monitoring

Clinical measurement of drug levels in blood to maintain a constant concentration of medication, or therapeutic drug monitoring,1 is needed now, more than ever, as adverse reactions to prescriptions drugs are taking the lives of hundreds of thousands of people each year.2

Costly. Deadly. Global.

Lack of therapeutic drug monitoring can lead to higher death rates, more adverse drug reactions and has proven costly to employers.
And the numbers are staggering.

How is Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Done? Testing is done using a clinical laboratory measurement of a chemical parameter which analyzes a blood sample collected into a test tube or vial. Effective testing can be completed on Beckman Coulter chemical analyzers AU480, AU680, AU5800 and DxC 700 AU with our comprehensive therapeutic drug monitoring menu to enhance your clinical laboratory.
