Acetone – Urine


SKU: ACTU Category:


Acetone poisoning occurs when there’s more acetone in your body than your liver can break down. Acetone is a clear liquid that smells like nail polish remover. When exposed to the air, it quickly evaporates and remains highly flammable. Acetone is dangerous to use around an open flame. Hundreds of commonly used household products contain acetone, including furniture polish, rubbing alcohol, and nail polish.

This test measures the amount of acetone in the urine sample.
