Test ID: FDS9R    
Drug Screen 9 Panel, Serum or Plasma-Immunoassay Screen with Reflex to Mass Spectrometry Confirmation/Quantitation

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If screen is positive, specimens are automatically confirmed by GC/MS and/or LC/MS/MS at an additional charge.

Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.

Drugs/Drug classes reported as "Positive" are automatically reflexed to mass spectrometry confirmation/quantitation testing.  An immunoassay unconfirmed positive screen result may be useful for medical purposes but does not meet forensic standards.


For medical purposes only; not valid for forensic use.


Interpretation Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

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, or limitations of testing. 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.
