The Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) Chemiluminescence ImmunoAssay (CLIA) Test is a chemiluminescence-based immunoassay for the quantitative detection of AMH in human serum or plasma (lithium heparin) using the ALTA CLIAlyzer.

Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) or Müllerian inhibiting substance (MIS) is a glycoprotein consisting of two 70-kDa subunits and a member of the transforming growth factor-β super family. In females, AMH is at a detectable range throughout the reproductive period, slowly diminishes during the reproductive senescence and becomes undetectable during post-menopause.

Measurement of AMH has been observed as a reliable assessment of the ovarian reserve. Unlike FSH, the variability of the AMH measurement within the mensural cycle is small, hence it has clinical significance in determining ovarian reserve especially in sub-fertile women prior to ovulation induction, estimation of time of menopause, and diagnosis and follow-up of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Women with PCOS show 2- or 3-fold higher serum AMH levels than normally ovulating women.

Recently, AMH levels have become a primary marker for female fertility and an important indicator in the treatment and management in female infertility. A fertile woman has AMH levels ranging from 1.0-4.0 ng/mL, while a woman with an AMH level <1.0 ng/mL is considered to have a low ovarian reserve.

 HAMA Interference  

Patient specimens containing human anti-mouse antibodies (HAMA) may give falsely elevated or decreased values.  Although HAMA-neutralizing agents are added, extremely high HAMA serum concentrations may occasionally affect the results.

Hook effect

There is no hook effect at AMH concentration of 1400 ng/mL.
