Useful for general screening in contexts of compliance and/or abuse. For follow-up testing of a presumptive result, confirmatory testing by mass spectrometry is recommended. For automatic reflex testing on all presumptive positives, Drug Panel 9, Urine - Screen with Reflex to Confirmation/Quantitation (0092186) is recommended.
- Patient Preparation
- Random urine.
- Specimen Preparation
- Transfer 4 mL urine with no additives or preservatives to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 2 mL)
- Storage/Transport Temperature
- Unacceptable Conditions
- Specimens exposed to repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
- Ambient: 1 week; Refrigerated: 1 month; Frozen: 3 years
|Drugs Covered and Cutoff Concentrations|
|THC (Cannabinoids)||20 ng/mL|
|MDMA (Ecstasy)||500 ng/mL|
The absence of expected drug(s) and/or drug metabolite(s) may indicate noncompliance, inappropriate timing of specimen collection relative to drug administration, poor drug absorption, diluted/adulterated urine, or limitations of testing. The concentration at which the screening test can detect a drug or metabolite varies within a drug class. The concentration value must be greater than or equal to the cutoff to be reported as positive. Interpretive questions should be directed to the laboratory.
The following opioids are not detected in this test: fentanyl, buprenorphine, meperidine, tramadol, and tapentadol. A comprehensive panel that includes these opioids is available or individual opioid testing can be ordered. Refer to aruplab.com for test information.
