These are tests that require the use of a biotin-based reagent such as some immunoassays (see list of parameters below) and tissue pathology examinations. Depending on the method used, results can be falsely low / negative (e.g. sandwich immunoassays) or falsely high / positive (e.g. competitive immunoassays).

Sandwich Immunoassays Competitive Immunoassays
You prescribe/take/analyze a sample for a laboratory test OR you interpret a lab test result:
Check with the laboratory if biotin interferes with the assay method used.
If no technical option can be found, treatment can be interrupted so as to obtain circulating biotin level compatible with the tests to be performed.

This is for Prostate Specific Antigen.
An annoying test in that a positive result can mean more than one thing. An enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, or both. It is known that the test can be skewed by a UTI. i am in the middle of an investigation in this area and the next step but one may well involve a blood test for PSA (depends on a dip for UTI) so I shall have to to quit Biotin a couple of days before.
