- Cd, Urine
Cadmium, urine; creatinine, urine; cadmium:creatinine ratio; cadmium, urine (24-hour)
Monitor exposure to cadmium
This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by LabCorp. It has not been cleared or approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
Inductively-coupled plasma/mass spectrometry (ICP/MS)
• 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
Urine (random or 24-hour)
Plastic urine container, no preservative
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.
Maintain specimen at room temperature.
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.
