Test ID: PDSOX    
Pain Clinic Drug Screen, Chain of Custody, 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; liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry for amphetamines and opiates) at an additional charge. If only oxycodone screens positive, only confirmation of oxycodone with metabolite will be performed. Any other opiate positive screen will result in the full opiate confirmation being performed.

 

The drug screen, prescription/OTC will be performed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Qualitative results will be reported.

 

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