Methods for Ambulatory Monitoring of Blood and Urine

Most laboratory chemistries are obtained at the doctor’s office or at the hospital. Such settings are efficient because of the presence of trained personnel and proximity to the medical laboratory. Furthermore, such studies are appropriate because most clinical chemistries focus on the overall level of a compound in blood or urine and are less oriented toward sampling a compound that fluctuates substantially over the day.
