[MCOH-EH] RBC cholinesterase Testing, National Reagent Shortage

Hello everyone,
I came across a message on a patients lab results for Plasma and RBC
cholinesterase Testing reading:
"Effective March 21st, 2022,  Cholinesterase RBC will be made non-orderable
due to reagent availability issues".

My staff reached out to our clinical lab confirming a national shortage of
reagent for performing this test.

I am curious if anyone else performing baseline and periodic cholinesterase
testing have come across this issue. If so, how have they handled this for
monitoring populations exposed to pesticides?

Thanks in advance
