Test Details

Synonyms

  • Cd, Urine

Test Includes

Cadmium, urine; creatinine, urine; cadmium:creatinine ratio; cadmium, urine (24-hour)

Use

Monitor exposure to cadmium

Methodology

Inductively-coupled plasma/mass spectrometry (ICP/MS)

Reference Interval

Environmental exposure: <2.0 μg/g creatinine, <3.0 μg/24 hours

Occupational exposure: OSHA Cadmium Standard: 3.0 μg/g creatinine, BEI®: 5.0 μg/g creatinine1

Specimen Requirements

Specimen

Urine (random or 24-hour)

Volume

5 mL

Minimum Volume

2.5 mL

Container

Plastic urine container, no preservative

Collection

Sampling time is not critical for industrial exposure monitoring. Metals with timing “not critical” have very long elimination half-lives and accumulate in the body over years, some for a lifetime. After a couple of weeks of exposure, specimens can be collected at any time.

Storage Instructions

Maintain specimen at room temperature.

Stability Requirements

Temperature

Period

Room temperature

14 days

Refrigerated

14 days

Frozen

14 days

Freeze/thaw cycles

Stable x3

Clinical Information

Special Instructions

Do not use preservative. Preservatives used for routine analysis may contain mercuric oxide (ie, Stabilur), which interferes with all metal testing. If both urinalysis and metal testing are ordered, please submit a separate urine specimen (containing no additive) for the metal testing.

Footnotes

1. BEI® (Biological Exposure Indices) based on 2010 Recommendations of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).
