Drug Immunoassay Panel, 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 drugs of abuse including amphetamines, barbiturates, cocaine, phencyclidine, and tetrahydrocannabinol. Positives are confirmed and quantitated by definitive methods (gas chromatography-mass spectrometry for barbiturates, cocaine and metabolites, phencyclidine, and tetrahydrocannabinol metabolite) at an additional charge. Amphetamines that screen positive will be quantified with liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry at an additional charge.
