Qualitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay
Within 24 hours
Serum separator tube.
Separate serum from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer 1 mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.5 mL) Also acceptable: K2EDTA plasma.
Specimens collected in citrate-based anticoagulant. Specimens containing particulate material. Heat-inactivated, severely hemolyzed, or lipemic specimens.
After separation from cells: Ambient: Unacceptable; Refrigerated: 1 week; Frozen: Indefinitely (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)
