BACKGROUND: Evaluate the level of interference of biochemists dosages in the 24-hour urine using or not the 6mol/l HCl acid in different concentrations and conditions and its implications in the most demanded analytes in clinical laboratory. METHODS: Twenty-two volunteers collected three 24-hour urine in 3 conditions: with 5ml/l and 20ml/l of 6mol/l HCl in the container, and without acid preservative. The samples collected without preservative were separated in aliquots and added 5ml/l of 6mol/l HCl after 24h. Analytes, uric acid creatinine, urea, chlorides, glucose, magnesium, sodium, potassium, microalbumin, proteins, amylase, aldosterone, calcium, cortisol, phosphorus, citric acid, oxalate, and metanephrines, were determined. RESULTS: Uric acid, glucose, microalbumin, protein, amylase and aldosterone showed that %CV ranging from 16 to 57% in the presence of acid preservative. Analytes that need acid preservative cortisol, citric acid and oxalate showed %CV ranging from 6 to 27% with r=0.66, r=0.77, r=0.70 respectively provided 5ml/l after delivery and r=0.31, r=0.70 and r=0.48 without preservative acid when compared with the gold standard (with 20ml/l of 6mol/l HCl). CONCLUSIONS: Glucose, microalbumin, protein, amylase and aldosterone urinary did not show good performance in the presence of acid preservative. Analytes that need acid preservative showed variation acceptable in condition 5ml/l of 6mol/l HCl added after 24h.
