    I’m looking for LOINC terms with component S-Phenylmercapturic-acid in urine, and also with the mass ratio  S-Phenylmercapturic-acid/creatinine in urine.

    This substance is described here with its chemical formula and a fair number of synonyms : https://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/compound/S-Phenylmercapturic-acid.

    I can’t find any LOINC term for it, maybe because LOINC is using another synonym?

    Thanks for pointing me to it if it exists. Otherwise I’ll make a request for its addition.

    It is a marker of benzene intoxication, mostly in urine, but can also be measured on serum

    Hello Francois,

    I could not locate the compound in LOINC either. A submission will be the best solution.

    Kind regards,
