Platinum Analytical Urine Sample Collection Protocol

 

  1. A urine sample of the first morning urination should be placed in a sterile collection vial.   Sterile collection vials may be purchased at any medical supply house.
  2. A chain of custody form should be completed by the patient.   This form may be downloaded from the Internet at www.expertox.com.   Put an X by Heavy Metals and write in Platinum.  
  3. The urine sample vial, along with a similar empty vial (for blank correction), and the completed chain of custody form should be shipped in a small cardboard box containing blue ice for temperature control during overnight shipment.
  4. Please exercise caution in ensuring that the specimen vial is securely sealed (can be placed inside a zip lock bag), in order that accidental leaks do not occur during shipping and void the testing.   
  5. Complete the questionnaire to be included in the research project.
  6. Place the questionnaire and a $150.00 cashier’s check in the shipping box.
  7. The results of your testing will be mailed to you at the address you have included in the chain of custody form unless you indicate other instructions.
  8. For any further assistance with this collection protocol, do not hesitate to call ExperTox at 281/476-4600.
