Copeptin Will Replace ADH Starting July 15

Beginning Monday, July 15, ADH (anti-diuretic hormone) will no longer be orderable on CS-Link™ and ADH will be replaced by Copeptin. Copeptin test code is COPEPQ.

Copeptin is a peptide derived from the pre-pro-hormone of ADH—also known as arginine vasopressin (AVP). Copeptin can be used as a near ideal surrogate marker for ADH (a.k.a AVP) because it has a much longer half-life, is easier to measure immunologically and is closely correlated to the pathways in which ADH is involved. Hence, many labs are replacing ADH testing with Copeptin.
