Electrolytes and Glucose Panel (Vitreous), Fluid (Forensic) Test (1919FL)

Electrolytes and Glucose Panel (Vitreous), Fluid (Forensic) Test (1919FL)

Analysis Code 1919FL 
Test Name Electrolytes and Glucose Panel (Vitreous), Fluid (Forensic) 
Test Includes Chloride (Vitreous Fluid); Creatinine (Vitreous Fluid); Glucose (Vitreous Fluid); Potassium (Vitreous Fluid); Sodium (Vitreous Fluid); Urea Nitrogen (Vitreous Fluid) 
Purpose Forensic Analysis; This test is New York State approved. 
Category Sugar, Metal/Element, Electrolyte 
Method(s) Colorimetry (C)
Chemistry Analyzer 
Specimen Requirements 2 mL Fluid 
Transport Temperature Refrigerated 
Specimen Container Red top tube (no additive) OR Plastic container (preservative-free) 
Special Handling Quantitative results for sodium and for potassium in vitreous specimens will be affected if performed on Gray Top Tubes since these collection tubes contain sodium fluoride and potassium oxalate. 
Light Protection Required Not Required 
Stability Room Temperature: Undetermined
Refrigerated: Undetermined
Frozen (-20 °C): Undetermined

Vitreous glucose levels decrease rapidly after death in vivo. This decrease is time and temperature-dependent, with a delay in loss facilitated by cold temperatures. The in vivo loss of glucose is reported to stop at approximately 18 hours post-death. Additionally, NMS studies have demonstrated a continued in vitro loss of glucose in vitreous when specimens are maintained at room temperature or refrigerated. No in vitro loss occurs when specimens are maintained frozen (-20°C) for up to 30 days.
