In brief: Same as others

The 3d generation TSH assays are best at the lowest ranges - the upper range is debatable as tsh, unlike most products in the blood is not distributed in populations in a bell curve.
The upper limits of the "normal" range of 4 to 5 in assays of all generations is probably wrong.
