Drug Abuse Survey with Confirmation, Panel 9, Urine
Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
Testing begins with screening tests for alcohol and drugs of abuse. Positives are confirmed and quantitated by definitive methods (gas chromatography-flame ionization detector for ethanol; gas chromatography-mass spectrometry for barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine and metabolites, methadone, phencyclidine, and tetrahydrocannabinol metabolite) at an additional charge. Amphetamines and opiates that screen positive will be quantified with liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry at an additional charge.
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.
Collection Container/Tube: Plastic urine container
Submission Container/Tube: Plastic, 60-mL urine bottle
Specimen Volume: 30 mL
1. Collect a random urine specimen.
2. Submit 30 mL in 1 plastic bottle.
3. No preservative.
1. No specimen substitutions.
2. No STATS are accepted for this procedure.
3. For situations where chain-of-custody is required, a Chain-of-Custody Kit (T282) is available. For chain-of-custody testing, order CDA7X / Drug Abuse Survey with Confirmation, Panel 9, Chain of Custody, Urine.
4. Additional drug panels and specific requests are available. Call Mayo Medical Laboratories at 800-533-1710 or 507-266-5700.
5. If urine creatinine is required or adulteration of the sample is suspected, the following test should be requested, ADULT / Adulterants Survey, Urine. For additional information, please refer to ADULT / Adulterants Survey, Urine.
6. Submitting less than 30 mL will compromise our ability to perform all necessary testing.
Forms: Chain-of-Custody Request Form is included in the Chain-of-Custody Kit (T282). A copy of this form is also available at http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/chain-of-custody-request-form.pdf.
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.
Specimen Stability Information Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the laboratory. Alternate acceptable temperature(s) are also included.
