Reference Range Information
Performing LocationReference Range
​Marshfield

​Males < = 49 years:  0.0 - 2.5 ng/mL

Males 50-59 years:  0.0 - 3.5 ng/mL

Males > = 60 years:  0.0 - 4.0 ng/mL

Interpretation

​Marshfield campus PSA assay shows improved sensitivity with a lower limit of detection of <0.03 ng/mL.  Results in the range of 0-2 will be reported to two decimal places enabling improved monitoring of post-prostectomy patients.
