Detection and identification of prescription or over the counter drugs frequently found in drug overdose or used with a suicidal intent

             

This test is designed to qualitatively identify drugs present in the specimen; quantification of identified drugs, when available, may be performed upon client request.

 

Chain of custody is required whenever the results of testing could be used in a court of law. Its purpose is to protect the rights of the individual contributing the specimen by demonstrating that it was under the control of personnel involved with testing the specimen at all times; this control implies that the opportunity for specimen tampering would be limited.
