Test ID: CDA7X    
Drug Abuse Survey with Confirmation, Panel 9, Chain of Custody, Random, Urine

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations 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 (LC-MS/MS) at an additional charge.

 

Adulterants testing will be performed on all chain-of-custody urine samples as per regulatory requirements.

Specimen Type Describes the specimen type validated for testing

Urine

Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing
