Separate acidifed samples are provided for Calcium, Phosphate and Magnesium analysis. Fresh human urine is used as the matrix, with endogenous panel of samples distributed twice a year. This programme includes Albumin/Creatinine ratio and Protein/Creatinine ratio in analyte profile.

Frequency: Monthly

Samples per set: 3 x 2.5mL samples + 3 x 0.5mL acidified
