This panel includes the following tests: pH, Calcium, Chloride, Citric Acid, Sulfate, Creatinine, Magnesium, Oxalate, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, and Uric Acid.

Please contact Client Services to obtain the specimen collection kit (supply #46007) prior to beginning the collection of the 24 hour urine.

24-hour urine. Specimens should be refrigerated during collection. Provide total volume.

Transport Container
Process ASAP after collection and within 24 hours after collection is complete as follows:
Use ARUP Kidney Stone/Supersaturation Urine Collection Kit. Contact Client Services for kit supply #46007.
Prepare four separate 4 mL aliquots from a well-mixed 24-hour urine collection according to the following specifications:
1st aliquot (pH 2): Dispense 4 mL of specimen into the Sulfamic Acid Tube. Mix well, then freeze.
2nd aliquot (pH 2): Dispense 4 mL of specimen into the Sulfamic Acid Tube. Mix well, then freeze.
3rd aliquot (pH 9): Dispense 4 mL of specimen into the Sodium Carbonate Tube. Mix well, then freeze.
4th aliquot: Dispense 4 mL of specimen into an Unpreserved Tube. Then freeze.
Freeze specimens immediately after aliquoting. Do not exceed 4 mL in tubes.

If the collection kit is unavailable, transport ASAP four 4 mL unadjusted aliquots of urine and send refrigerated within 24 hours of collection. If longer than 24 hours send aliquots frozen.

The urine must be processed using the collection kit within 24 hours of the end of collection.
