8-Methoxypsoralen (8-MOP), Serum
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
8-Methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) is extracted into a solvent mixture from serum that has been alkalinized by the addition of a borate buffer. The solvent layer is transferred to a clean, conical-tip tube and dried with heat under air flow. The residue is reconstituted in mobile phase and an aliquot is analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).

Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
