Re: Testing


Hi, Heather - You are correct: ACTH, insulin, leptin and glucose.  ACTH pulled into a purple-topped tube; others into serum separator tubes. All spun within 4 hours, separated, frozen overnight then sent to Cornell.  You are also correct in that it is non-fasting; have hay in front of them up until the blood test; and test 4 hours after the first meal of the day.  If they have free-choice hay all night, then no need to wait the 4 hours. 

Let us know how it turns out :)
