Metanephrine Plasma

Other

A healthy result should fall into the range 0 - 62 pg/mL.

Metanephrine is a metabolite of epinephrine. Normally, the levels of Metanephrine are low in the plasma. However, when there are tumors in the body that originate from neural crest cells called paragangliomas or neuroblastomas, or from pheochromocytomas (an adrenal gland tumor), the levels of Metanephrine rise significantly. When Metanephrine levels are normal, then it’s extremely unlikely that someone has pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma. 

If this test is positive, another type of test should be done, called the fractionated 24-hour urinary metanephrines. 

Normal Ranges for Metanephrine in nmol/L:
