Succinylacetone is very labile. Succinylacetone samples must be frozen immediately after collection. If the minimum of 10 mLs of urine is not possible from one sample, it is acceptable to pool samples. All samples including pooled samples must be frozen immediately after collection and must be kept frozen until the sample is tested. Please include completed testing requisition along with the sample submissions. It is attached to this entry.
