Specimen Requirement

Serum is preferred, EDTA or heparinized plasma are also acceptable. Gel tubes are acceptable.

Additional Specimen Collection Information

Collect blood in a serum or plasma gel tube (EDTA or heparin).

  • Minimum volume: 500 mcL
  • Hemolysis: > 2+ not acceptable
  • Lipemia: > 3+ must be ultracentrifuged
  • Icterus: no significant interference noted
  • Storage: specimen is stable for up to 7 days refrigerated; freeze at -20oC for long term storage.
    Thoroughly mix thawed specimens; it is also recommended to centrifuge thawed specimens to remove gross particulate matter. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles (up to 3 cycles are acceptable).
