Catecholamines, free Metanephrines and Serotonin

CATECHOLAMINES, FREE METANEPHRINES AND SEROTONİN IN URINE LC-MS/MS KIT

The major metabolites of catecholamines secreted by the adrenal glands in case of stress are metanephrine, epinephrine, normetanephrine and norepinephrine. These biomarkers are evaluated to determine urinary concentration of them in people with suspected pheochromocytoma. This disease is a very rare tumour and causes hypertension in nonfollowed cases. It is very important to accurately diagnose before surgical intervention and by looking at the catecholamine derivatives, it is possible to diagnose pheochromocytoma.

Jasem presents this analysis reliably on LC-MS/MS with free metanephrine, catecholamine and serotonin kit in urine.

Sample Preparation


  • Step 1

    50 µL of calibrator/QC/urine specimen is transferred to a vial and 25 µL of internal standard is added to the vial, then vortex for 5 sec.

  • Step 2

    175 µL of Reagent-1 is pipetted to the vial and vortex for 5 sec. prior to injection to LC-MS/MS system.
