Lab Reagent-VITROS® XT 7600 and Vancomycin Reference Range

Good Morning,

Our lab just changed their instrumentation and started using the Ortho VITROS® XT 7600. The reference range for Vancomycin changed from 10-20 to 5-10 and we were told we can not modify it. Does anyone else's lab use this instrumentation and how have you been able to integrate this change clinically. Were you successful in changing the reference range?

Thank you!
