All amino acids detected in the urine control were also quantified in urine samples from patients to establish adequate reference intervals, regardless of the fact that some of them either were not useful for diagnosis or required special sampling for clinical management (1methylhistidine, carnosine, tryptophan, phosphoethanolamine, ethanolamine).
The CVs for most free amino acids of the four sample types (n = 172) were between 12% and 42%, except for the following amino acids: phosphoethanolamine (PTEN), aspartic acid (Asp), hydroxyproline (Hyp), citrulline (Cit), [beta]-alanine, ethanolamine, and Trp.
