Test Name NMR LipoProfile Test
Test Code LP-600
Preferred Requirement(s) 4mL (2mL) – LipoTube
Transport Temperature R=7days
Special Instructions ***Acceptable results may be obtained using serum from plain red top tube/no gel. Gently invert collection tube to mix contents and allow the specimen to clot at room temperature for 30 minutes before centrifugation. Serum specimen must be kept refrigerated and centrifuged within 6 hrs. Centrifuge specimens for 15 minutes at 3,000 rpm. Transfer 2-4 ml of serum into a transport tube for shipment. Indicate specimen type by marking “serum” on the transport tube.***EDTA plasma specimens must be collected in a non gel barrier purple top tube. Plasma specimens must be kept refrigerated and centrifuged within 6 hrs. Centrifuge specimens for 15 minutes at 3,000 rpm. Transfer 2-4 ml of plasma into a transport tube for shipment.
