Galactitol, Quantitative, Urine
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
A total of 200 mcL of urine are spiked with a mixture of labeled internal standards, allowed to equilibrate, and evaporated. The dry residue is derivatized to form trimethylsilyl (TMS) esters, then extracted with hexane. Specimens are analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, selected ion monitoring using ammonia chemical ionization and a stable isotope dilution method.(Jansen G, Muskiet F, Schierbeek H, et al: Capillary gas chromatography profiling of urinary, plasma, and erythrocyte sugars and polyols as their trimethylsilyl derivatives, preceded by a simple and rapid prepurification method.

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.
