Diuretic Screen, Urine
NY State Approved Indicates the status of NY State approval and if the test is orderable for NY State clients.
High Performance Liquid Chromatography with Ultraviolet Detection; (HPLC-UV)
Reporting Name A shorter/abbreviated version of the Published Name for a test; an abbreviated test name
Diuretic Screen, Urine
Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing
Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.
10 mL aliquot of random or spot urine collected without preservative in a plastic container. Send specimen refrigerated.
Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.
Cold OK; Warm OK
Specimen Stability Information Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the laboratory. Alternate acceptable temperature(s) are also included.
|Urine||Refrigerated (preferred)||14 days|
Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
Qualitative diuretic screen includes: benzthiazide, bumetanide, chlorothiazide, chlorthalidone, furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide, hydroflumethiazide, and metolazone.

Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.
Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result
7 - 9 days
Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test
