Preferred test to follow-up presumptive results. For general screening, Opiates, Urine Screen with Reflex to Quantitation (2005093) is preferred.
Quantitative Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry
Transfer 0.5 mL with no additives or preservatives urine to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.3 mL)
Specimens exposed to repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Ambient: 1 week; Refrigerated: 1 month; Frozen: 3 years
Effective August 17, 2015
|Drugs Covered||Cutoff Concentrations|
Methodology: Quantitative Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry
Positive cutoff: 20 ng/mL except as specified below:
For medical purposes only; not valid for forensic use.
Identification of specific drug(s) taken by specimen donor is problematic due to common metabolites, some of which are prescription drugs themselves. 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. All drug analytes covered are in the non-glucuronidated (free) forms. 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.
