Precision Analytical's Qualifications and Licenses
Precision Analytical's Founder
Mark Newman founded Precision Analytical in 2012. Mark is an internationally recognised hormone testing expert. Mark spent 25 years of his career developing and leading urine and salivary testing labs (including at the respected international lab, ZRT for over six years), gaining a thorough insight into blood, urine, and saliva hormone testing. His unique experience led to the creation of the DUTCH test, widely regarded as one of the most comprehensive hormone tests available.
Mark has co-authored many peer-reviewed studies on the effectiveness of dried urine testing to measure hormones.
Precision Analytical has consistently been involved in clinical research and produced multiple peer-reviewed studies proving the effectiveness of dried urine testing as an alternative to serum (blood) or saliva for monitoring various hormone therapy applications. Below are some examples:
In 2021, Precision Analytical presented peer-reviewed research on dried urine testing to the North American Menopause Society. This validated that dried urine testing is an effective alternative to serum or saliva for monitoring hormone therapy applications.
A 2020 journal featured DUTCH in a study to determine the utility of dried urine sampling in obtaining measures of cortisol and cortisol metabolites. Additional aims were to evaluate if a 4-spot urine collection represents a 24-hour urine collection and if expected diurnal cortisol patterns can be observed in samples from both urine and saliva.
In 2019, in collaboration with the University of Southern California Reproductive Endocrine Clinical Laboratory, Precision Analytic published a peer-review paper BMC Chemistry that proved that dried urine samples on filter paper provided results that correlated with serum results.
Accuracy, reliability and consistency
Precision Analytical use liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS/MS) to identify different analytes within a test sample.
These are widely regarded in the laboratory testing community as highly accurate testing processes. Precision Analytical's research also has proven that these methods show increased accuracy over immunoassays.
