Specimen(s):
Calculi specimen (air dried)
Collection Medium:
Miscellaneous container; contact laboratory
Rejection Criteria:
Any collection or shipping container with a needle attached.
Turn Around Time:
1-4 days upon receipt at reference laboratory
Reference Range:
By Report
Interpretive Data:
Calculi are the products of physiological processes that yield crystalline compounds in a matrix of biological compounds and blood. Matrix components are not reported. The clinically significant crystalline components identified in calculi specimens are reported. Gross description may not be consistant with the composition determined by FTIR analysis.
Comments:
Calculi specimens transported in liquid or contaminated with blood require special handling which will delay analysis. Samples that are wrapped in tape or embedded in wax will delay or prevent analysis and should not be submitted.
Methodology:
Quantitative Reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy/Quantitative Polarizing Microscopy
