Phosphorus (Inorganic), Serum
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
The method is based on the reaction of phosphate with ammonium molybdate to form ammonium phosphomolybdate (without reduction). The addition of an accelerator gives rise to a more rapid rate of reaction. Sample blanking yields more precise results.(Package insert, Roche Phosphorus reagent, Roche Diagnostics Corp, Indianapolis, IN, 1999)
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.
