Special Instructions

Chain-of-custody documentation is required for samples submitted for preëmployment, random employee testing, and forensic purposes. For other applications, use the standard test request form. Please mark chain-of-custody test number on the request form.


Expected Turnaround Time

1 - 4 days


Specimen Requirements


Specimen

Urine


Volume

20 mL


Container

Use plastic urine drug bottle and tamper-evident seal for forensic specimen. Collection kits are available by request from the laboratory.


Collection

Urine temperature monitoring is recommended for samples to be tested for medicolegal purposes.


Storage Instructions

Maintain specimen at room temperature. If arrival extends beyond seven days, then refrigerate.


Causes for Rejection

Quantity not sufficient for analysis; improper specimen (serum, plasma, blood); incomplete chain-of-custody documentation; incomplete specimen identification; improper or missing tamper-evident seals


Test Details


Use

Confirm the presence of barbiturates


Limitations

Short- and intermediate-acting barbiturates can be detected in urine for at least 24 to 72 hours following ingestion, longer-acting drugs for at least seven days.


Methodology

Initial testing by immunoassay (IA); confirmation of positives by mass spectrometry (MS)


Additional Information

The presence of barbiturates in urine is presumptively positive at a level >300 ng/mL using secobarbital as a standard and can indicate prescribed or abused intake of this class of drugs.
