Due to the significant variation in the rate of secretion over the course of a day, a 24-hour collection is preferred. Collect urine in a clean, plastic container with no metal cap or glued insert and no preservative. Collection must take place prior to or 48 hours after administering gadolinium-containing contrast media. Refrigerate.
