Detecting drug abuse involving amphetamines, cocaine, marijuana, opiates, and phencyclidine
This test is intended to be used in a setting where the test results can be used definitively to make a diagnosis.
Some drug treatment programs do not require confirmatory testing of screen-positive specimens. In those settings, UDOA / Drug Abuse Survey, Urine is a less costly option.
Testing begins with immunoassay screen. Positives are confirmed and quantitated by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry or liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry at an additional charge.
This assay was designed to screen for and confirm by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) or liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) for the following drugs:
This assay represents the coupling of UDOA / Drug Abuse Survey, Urine with an automatic confirmation of all positive results by the definitive assay available and described elsewhere (eg, AMPHU / Amphetamines Confirmation, Urine). All positive screening results are confirmed by GC-MS or LC-MS/MS, and quantitated, before a positive result is reported.
Screening cutoff concentrations
Amphetamines: 500 ng/mL
Cocaine (benzoylecgonine-cocaine metabolite): 150 ng/mL
Opiates: 300 ng/mL
Phencyclidine: 25 ng/mL
Tetrahydrocannabinol carboxylic acid: 50 ng/mL
This report is intended for use in clinical monitoring or management of patients. It is not intended for use in employment-related testing.
A positive result indicates that the patient has used the drugs detected in the recent past. See individual tests (eg, AMPHU / Amphetamines Confirmation, Urine) for more information.
For information about drug testing, including estimated detection times, see Drugs of Abuse Testing at http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/articles/drug-book/index.html
Not intended for use in employment-related testing.
The test does not screen for drug classes other than those listed above. More comprehensive screening is available using DSS / Drug Screen, Prescription/OTC, Serum or PDSU / Drug Screen, Prescription/OTC, Urine.
For situations where chain of custody is required, a Chain-of-Custody Kit (T282) is available. See CDA5X / Drug Abuse Survey with Confirmation, Panel 5, Chain of Custody, Urine.
