Interpretation

Plasma zinc interpretation

Additional Information

Plasma must be separated from cells within 2- 4 hours of collection. For accurate zinc levels we require blood to be taken off into a Becton Dickson K2EDTA Plus  6 mL Royal Blue Trace Metal Tube. Plasma Copper and plasma Selenium can also be done on this sample. Lithium heparin sample may also be used. 

SST tube are NOT suitable due to increased amounts of zinc in the gel.
