Synthetic Cannabinoid Metabolites Screen - Expanded, Urine

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

Confirmation will be performed, if appropriate, at no additional charge.

Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing

Urine

Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.

Collect 10 mL random urine. Send urine refrigerated in a preservative-free plastic urine container.

Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.
