Coenzyme Q10, Reduced and Total, Plasma
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is extracted from plasma with cold 1-propanol containing coenzyme Q9 as an internal standard. An aliquot of the lipid extract is fractionated by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The separated coenzyme Q10 reduced and coenzyme Q10 oxidized are quantified by measurement of selective coulometric response emerging from the chromatographic column.(Tang PH, Miles MV, DeGrauw A, et al: HPLC analysis of reduced and oxidized coenzyme Q in human plasma. Clin Chem 2001 February;47:256-265)

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.
