Coproporphyrin, porphobilinogen, urobilinogen, and other porphyrins.
To assess for porphyrins in the urine to assist with diagnosis of genetic disorders associated with porphyrin synthesis as well as heavy metal toxicity.
Urine from a random or timed specimen collected in a clean, amber-colored plastic collection container with sodium carbonate as a preservative.
(Method: High-performance liquid chromatography for porphyrins; spectrophotometry for δ-aminolevulinic acid and porphobilinogen)
