This test is used to monitor exposure to mercury, primarily inorganic mercury.
Monitor exposure to mercury (primarily inorganic mercury). Some organic forms of mercury, including phenylmercury, are metabolized to inorganic mercury; however, methylmercury and ethylmercury are not metabolized to inorganic mercury and the primary route of excretion is in the bile and stool; consequently, these alkylmercury compounds are usually not detected in urine.
Mercury exposure e.g. in work environment like Power plants.
Urine collection to be done preshift i.e. 16 hours without exposure. Patient must discard first sample at 8.am. Then collect all urine for 24 hours till 8 am next morning, and lid tightly.
