A name given by W. O. Moor to a yellow, slightly bitter, fatty liquid obtained by evaporating urine, treating the residue with silver nitrate, cooling, and filtering; supposed by him to be the "most characteristic component part of urine." It is probably a concentrated solution of normal urinary constituents and of the reagent used in its supposed isolation.
