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.
Supplies: Plastic, 60-mL urine bottle (T313)
Container/Tube: Plastic, 60-mL urine bottle
Specimen Volume: 30 mL
1. Collect a random urine specimen.
2. No preservative.
1. See Prescription and Over-the-Counter (OTC) Drug Screens in Special Instructions.
2. For chain-of-custody testing, order PDSUX / Drug Screen, Prescription/OTC, Chain of Custody, Urine. For situations where chain of custody is required, a Chain-of-Custody Kit (T282) is available.
3. Not intended for use in employment-related testing.
4. 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.
