Measurement and control of the cystine levels in patients, through the administration of Cystagon, is key to their health and blood samples are taken regularly to monitor the level. These have to be analysed at one of the 5 laboratories that are certified to do this, namely Birmingham, Great Ormond Street, Leeds, Manchester Hospital and St Thomas’s/ Evelina.
