Hi, I'm doing a 24hr urine collection test for catecholamine. I am almost at the top of the bottle (hospital provided) and there's no way I'm getting whatever comes out between now and 7am in there!

I did try the clinic reception for over an hour but no answer.

I can collect the urine in other containers but the hospital provided one has some sort of preservative acid in it and I can only return the hospital provided one for the tests to be done.

Shall I just call again tomorrow and ask for 2 new bottles and do the test again from scratch?

I feel an idiot. The bottle looked huge when empty, but it certainly doesn't take much to fill it!!!!

The rest requires all urine in 24 hours in the appropriate bottles. So yes I'm afraid you will need to request 2 bottles and start the collection again.
