Cobalt is part of our diet. Approximately 85% of absorbed cobalt is excreted in the urine and the remainder eliminated in stool. Toxicity may occur in select industrial environments. Cobalt is not mined in the United States so primary supplies are imported.

Avoid worksite collection. To avoid contamination, use powderless
gloves. Do not aliquot specimens. Patient should refrain from taking
mineral supplements, vitamin B12, or vitamin B complex three days
before specimen collection.
