Per 24h calculations are provided to aid interpretation for collections with a duration of 24 hours and an average daily urine volume. For specimens with notable deviations in collection time or volume, ratios of analytes to a corresponding urine creatinine concentration may assist in result interpretation.
This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. This test was performed in a CLIA certified laboratory and is intended for clinical purposes.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) quickly degrades to oxalate in non-acidified urine. Patients should discontinue use of vitamin C supplements at least 48 hours prior to the start of urine collection and abstain until collection is complete.
Preservation with Sulfamic Acid before transporting is highly recommended.
