Consumption of most daily multivitamins (30-60mcg biotin) poses NO risk to lab results.  However, daily consumption of 5mg Biotin or more (greater than 160 fold of the 30 mcg daily recommended intake) may cause inaccurate results in many immunoassays.  These include, but are not limited to, thyroid function tests, cardiac and tumor markers, serology tests and serum allergy IgE tests.
Although high doses of biotin may interfere with laboratory tests, biotin is quickly cleared from the body in most cases.  For patients taking 5mg of biotin daily, blood level of biotin will return to within normal limits for laboratory testing within 3.5 hours of intake.  
Biotin (Vitamin B7) is commonly found in over-the-counter multi-vitamins and supplements for hair, nails and skin improvement.
Laboratories recommend that supplements containing more than 5mg biotin should not be taken 8 hours prior to any lab tests.  Click here to see the list of lab tests that can potentially be affected by Biotin consumption.
