Collection Details:

Collection Instructions:

Royal blue-top (EDTA) tube and plastic urine container.

As β2-microglobulin can degrade under acidic conditions in the bladder, workers should empty their bladder and then drink a large glass of water at the start of the visit. Urine should then be collected within one hour. The pH of the urine should be measured and adjusted to 6-8, if necessary, using 0.1 N NaOH.

Maintain specimen at room temperature. Refrigerated storage is recommended if the specimen is not submitted to the laboratory for testing within 2 days of collection.
