Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Plasma is extracted with butanol after the addition of the internal standard (17:0 lysophosphatidylcholine [LPC]). After vortexing, centrifugation, and evaporation, the samples are reconstituted in methanol. Quantification is performed by selective reaction monitoring and positive mode electrospray liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).(Lacey JM, Magera MJ, Matern D, et al: Rapid quantitative determination of lysophosphatidylcholine by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry [LC-MS/MS].

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.
