We are starting to do the test kit “ROM PLUS” which looks for both Placenta Protein 12 (PP12) and Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) but with a single result.
This is replacing the Amnisure test which measure for PLACENTAL ALPHA MICROGLOBULIN1 (LOINC # 50385-4).
Any idea about this new test’s LOINC number?
I personally haven’t seen many manufacturers submit for new LOINC codes upon kit development. I suggest you make a submission for the next release, using RELMA. Include the package insert from Clinical Innovations, as well as deidentified normal and abnormal example reports. Full details of making a submission are included in the RELM documentation.
They are very helpful staff!
