Ethyl Glucuronide Screen, Umbilical Cord Tissue

Useful For
Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Perinatal Drug Testing; Drug of Abuse Monitoring; Exclusion Screen; The presence of EtG in umbilical cord tissue suggests maternal exposure to ethanol, but the route of exposure (e.g., transdermal vs. oral) cannot be determined.

Reflex Tests
Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests.

Specimen Type
Describes the specimen type validated for testing

Tissue

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

Specimen Type: Umbilical Cord Tissue

Container/Tube: Plastic, preservative-free container

Specimen Volume: 10 grams

Collection Instructions: Ensure sample is not exposed to ethanol-containing vapors or liquids during collection and storage. Collect at least 6 inches of umbilical cord (approximately the length of an adult hand). Drain and discard any blood. Rinse the exterior of the cord segment with normal saline or sterile water. Pat the cord dry and place in container for transport. Ship refrigerated in a preservative-free, plastic container.

Unacceptable Specimens: Cords soaking in blood or other fluid. Formalin fixed. Tissue that is obviously decomposed. Samples received without cold pack.

Specimen Minimum Volume
Defines the amount of sample necessary to provide a clinically relevant result as determined by the Testing Laboratory

Day(s) Performed
Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Monday - Sunday

Report Available
The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

2 to 7 days

Performing Laboratory Location
Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test

Test Classification
Provides information regarding the medical device classification for laboratory test kits and reagents. Tests may be classified as cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and used per manufacturer instructions, or as products that do not undergo full FDA review and approval, and are then labeled as an Analyte Specific Reagent (ASR) product.

This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by NMS Labs. It has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

CPT Code Information
Provides guidance in determining the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code(s) information for each test or profile. The listed CPT codes reflect Mayo Clinic Laboratories interpretation of CPT coding requirements. It is the responsibility of each laboratory to determine correct CPT codes to use for billing.

CPT codes are provided by the performing laboratory.
