English term or phrase: glucose must be resulted to reflex
Cari colleghi, questa è la frase per intero: "If the AD question "Is patient fasting?" is resulted as "Yes", then a Fasting Glucose will automatically be performed. (For Retest/PSFU and Retest/PSFU/Without APO E, glucose must be resulted to reflex)."
Il contesto: istruzioni per la raccolta e l'invio di campioni di laboratorio nell'ambito di uno studio clinico. Grazie

Explanation:
Ciao Marina,

la sintassi è un po' criptica e non ho molto tempo al momento per riflettere ma mi veniva in mente una possibile associazione con il concetto di "reflex testing" (esecuzione di analisi ematologiche supplementari in base al risultato della prima analisi) intesa come di seguito descritto:
Reflex testing is an important tool in providing timely, cost-effective and quality care to patients. A reflex test is a laboratory test performed (and
charged for) subsequent to an initially ordered and resulted test. Reflex testing occurs when an initial test result meets pre-determined criteria
(e.g., positive or outside normal parameters), and indicate that a second related test is medically appropriate, and the primary test result is
inconclusive without the reflex or follow-up test. It is performed automatically without the intervention of the ordering physician. Reflex testing
may prevent the need for additional specimen procurement from the patient.
Certain confirmatory reflex tests are required by law; but generally each laboratory establishes its own criteria for medically appropriate reflex
tests. A laboratory must disclose to the ordering physician its protocol for performing reflex testing and provide the physician with the
opportunity to decline the follow-up tests

L'idea potrebbe essere quindi che i risultati della glicemia devono essere tali da rendere necessaria la seconda analisi supplementare... (?) ma non posso esserne certa magari qualche ricerca in più o l'analisi del contesto generale potrebbe aiutarti. Facci sapere.

Grazie Monica, in effetti eri sulla strada giusta. Però più che altro era il testo a essere criptico. Ho chiesto spiegazioni all'agenzia che mi ha girato la risposta del cliente ""glucose must be resulted to reflex" is some shorthand for: "a glucose result must be present (e.g., on the lab sheet) in order to elicit reflex testing".
Alla faccia dello "shorthand"!
