Drug Panel 9A, 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, GC/FID, 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.

For medical purposes only; not valid for forensic use.

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.

If the specimen screens positive, then Confirmation/Quantitation by GC/MS, GC/FID, 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).
