Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: FMMM    
Mephedrone, MDPV and Methylone, Urine

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

If the Mephedrone, MDPV, Methylone is positive, then the Mephedrone and MDPV Confirm (FMMCF) and Methylone Confirm (FMEYL) will be performed at an additional charge.


Positive results will reflex additional testing at an additional charge.


If Mephedrone and/or MDPV are positive it will reflex the Mephedrone and MDPV Confirm (FMMCF). If the Methylone is positive it will reflex the Methylone Confirm (FMEYL).

Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing


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.

Container: Preservative-free plastic urine container

Specimen volume: 10 mL


Collection instructions

  1. collect a random urine specimen
  2. No preservative

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.

1 mL
