Oxycodone Opiate Drug Test


About Our Test.
The OXYCODONE One Step Oxycodone Test Strip yields a positive result when the oxycodone level in urine exceeds 100 ng/mL. At present, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) does not have a recommended screening cutoff for oxycodone positive specimens. This assay is intended for use in clinical toxicology laboratories, physicians' offices, drug of abuse clinics and law enforcement agencies.Urine based screening tests for drugs of abuse range from complex analytical procedures to simple immunoassay tests. The sensitivity and rapidity of immunoassay have made them the 
most accepted method of preliminary screening for drugs of abuse in urine. This allows the laboratory to eliminate the large number of negative specimens and focus on the smaller number of initially positive samples. Also see the hair follicle drug test for oxycodone.
