I believe this question is "tested most frequently when collected from the patient?" ?? If that is the case then I would say the Answer is Pregnancy and Drugs, almost equally.

How is potassium collected?

A sample is collected through the urine. The specimen collection is called a '24 hour' collection, according to this website.

In refrigeration, or room temperature?

What patient need to do before the urinarysis?

For a basic urinalysis, there is no preparation needed. For a "clean catch" specimen, the patient urinates for a few seconds, and then collects the sample. For females, the area should be cleaned first with a provided wipe and for uncircumcised men, the foreskin should be retracted with the same cleaning done to the glans of the penis (the head). Certain STD tests can be run off the urine sample, but for this, the patient should not have urinated in at least 1 hour and the urine collected is the first urine out of the urethra (not a clean catch as described above). Other tests off the urine such as glucose tests require drinking certain fluids prior to the test, but those are outside the realm of the basic urinalysis.
