Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing

Serum
Urine

Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.

Serum and urine are required.

 

Specimen Type: Serum

Collection Container/Tube: Red top or serum gel

Submission Container/Tube: Plastic vial

Specimen Volume: 0.5 mL

Collection Instructions:

1. Fasting.

2. Label specimen as serum.

 

Specimen Type: Urine

Container/Tube: Plastic, 6-mL tube (Supply T465)

Specimen Volume: 5 mL

Collection Instructions:

1. Collect a random urine specimen.

2. No preservative.

3. Label specimen as urine.

Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.

Urine: 1 mL/Serum: 0.25 mL
