Special instructions

Ensure this is the first sample taken (yellow top vacutainer).
Copper is an essential mineral in the body involved in the regulation of iron metabolism, formation of connective tissue, energy production and the function of the nervous system and brain. Copper is found in many foods including nuts, chocolate, mushrooms, whole grains, dried fruits and liver. Both excesses and deficiencies of copper are rare.

Wilson’s disease is an inherited copper metabolism disorder that leads to copper being deposited in tissues and organs, particularly the liver and brain. It is also known as copper storage disease and inherited copper toxicity. Copper testing is primarily used to help diagnose Wilson’s disease.
