Brief Summary:
This study is being done to see if the Nova Creatinine Meter can give a correct measure of creatinine (a blood test used to measure kidney function) when the blood is taken from a capillary (smallest type of blood vessels). The Nova Creatinine Meter is a hand held device that can be used in a clinic to measure creatinine in about 50 seconds. Current laboratory creatinine testing can take up to an hour. Since chemotherapy patients need to have their creatinine measured prior to treatment, this meter could make testing easier and faster.

1
Patients having a creatinine drawn
Other: hand-held POC creatinine analyzer-blood test
This study will require the collection of a finger-puncture capillary blood specimen in addition to one green stoppered heparin containing collection tube. This is taken pre-therapy. The capillary whole blood specimen will be used to perform a creatinine determination on the "investigational" hand-held creatinine analyzer using special test strips for the analysis.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The primary outcomes would be, reduced wait time and increased patient satisfaction. [ Time Frame: conclusion of the study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. reduced blood loss [ Time Frame: conclusion of the study ]
