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.
Qualitative Enzyme Multiplied Immunoassay Technique/ Quantitative Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry/Quantitative Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry
New York DOH Approval Status
Transfer 8 mL urine with no additives or preservative to ARUP Standard Transport Tubes. (Min: 4 mL)
Specimens exposed to repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Ambient: 1 week; Refrigerated: 1 month; Frozen: 1 month
Effective August 17, 2015
|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 non-compliance, 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.
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.
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.
