North Carolina General Statute §130A-131.8 (section about Laboratory Reports, Lead Poisoning in Children) was amended during the 2009 legislative session. The statute requires ALL blood lead test results for children under 6 to be reported electronically to NC DHHS within five working days. This requirement includes results from samples analyzed on Portable Blood Lead analyzers (e.g. Leadcare machines). You must notify the NC CEHB office if you are using a Portable Analyzer for blood lead analysis if you have not done so already!
Note: To make arrangements for reporting blood lead test results for children from your portable analyzer, please contact Kim Gaetz at (919) 707-5953 or by email.
