TMAU urine test conducted in other laboratories

Thank you for your time Dr Manning.

I am about to hand in a urine sample to a local biochemistry lab in Glasgow.

Do you know if there are labs other than yours, in the UK, successfully diagnosing TMAU (and differentiating between types 1 and 2)?

Do other labs know to refer to you for advice on testing or is there a standard protocol they would automatically know to access?

Would it be possible for there to be a problem with the collection / handling / processing of the sample, which resulted in a false negative? And would this be obvious from the result?

Thank you again.
