Drug Panel 9, Urine - Screen with Reflex to Confirmation/Quantitation
Ordering Recommendation

Useful for general screening in contexts of compliance and/or abuse. A screen with reflex testing is the preferred method for ruling out drug exposure.

Interpretive Data
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. Specimens for which drugs or drug classes are detected by the screen are reflexed to a second, more specific technology (GC/MS and/or LC-MS/MS). 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.

Oxycodone results are reported with the opiates results. MDMA results are reported with the amphetamines results. 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 for test information.

For medical purposes only; not valid for forensic use.

If the specimen screens positive, then Confirmation/Quantitation by GC/MS and/or LC-MS/MS will be added to confirm result. Additional charges apply.

To order testing for individual opioids, refer to Fentanyl and Metabolite - Confirmation/Quantitation - Urine (ARUP test code 0092570), Buprenorphine and Metabolites - Confirmation/Quantitation - Urine (ARUP test code 2010092), Meperidine and Metabolite Quantitative, Urine (ARUP test code 3000248), Tramadol and Metabolites - Confirmation/Quantitation - Urine (ARUP test code 2002736). For the comprehensive panel, refer to Pain Management Drug Panel by High-Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry and Enzyme Immunoassay, Urine (ARUP test code 2007479).
