Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

Testing begins with immunoassay screen. If cocaine and metabolites, phencyclidine, or tetrahydrocannabinol metabolite screen is positive, then the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) confirmation with quantification will be performed 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.
