Test Code: T56
An analyte specific screen and LC-MS/MS quantitative test for select drugs of abuse.
Ultra-High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) coupled to Triple Quadrupole tandem Mass Spectrometry (QqQ MS/MS).
Screening for this assay is setup Mon., Wed., and Fri. while quantitative confirmations are run Mon-Fri.
Typically, ≤ 4 business days from receipt for negative reports. For positive, quantitative reports ≤ 8 business days TAT from receipt.
Vitreous Fluid; 1 x 5 mL no-additive tube (red top). Any non-retrievable specimen will be considered.
Stored at 4oC until testing is completed. Long term storage of samples (1 year) is stored at -20oC.
Specimen quality is compromised at or beyond ability to complete testing and provide accurate results (i.e., quality not sufficient [QNS]).
