Methodology: Quantitative Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry

Drugs covered:
codeine, morphine, 6-acetylmorphine, hydrocodone, norhydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone, noroxycodone , oxymorphone and noroxymorphone. All drugs covered are the non-glucuronidated (free) form.

Positive cutoff:
20 ng/mL

For medical purposes only; not valid for forensic use.

The absence of expected drug(s) and/or drug metabolite(s) may indicate non-compliance, inappropriate timing of specimen collection relative to drug administration, poor drug absorption, diluted/adulterated urine, or limitations of testing. The concentration value must be greater than or equal to the cutoff to be reported as positive. A very small amount of an unexpected drug analyte in the presence of a large amount of an expected drug analyte may reflect pharmaceutical impurity. Interpretive questions should be directed to the laboratory.
