Elite Medical offers more than 150 drug tests, including common drugs of abuse, central nervous system stimulants, depressants, narcotic analgesics, hallucinogens, psychotropic drugs, therapeutic drugs and over the counter medicines.
Urine drug testing (UDT) provides the following clinical values.
- Enhance patient care
- Provide clinician objective documentation of patient’s compliance with the treatment plan established
- Confirm adherence to prescribed medications
- Reduce the risk of unrecognized drug misuse, abuse, diversion and drug to drug interaction situations
- Serve as an adjunct to patient self-report of drug and or substance abuse
Oral fluid (OF) testing is advantageous for its simplicity and non-invasiveness of specimen collection. This type of testing may better reflect recent drug use.
Elite Medical Labs uses high quality model of instruments including Liquid chromatography (LC) mass spectrometry (MS) or tandem mass spectrometry (LCMSMS ABSciex 5500, 4500) for drug confirmation and quantitation. With operation at multiple reaction monitoring mode, LC/MS/MS allows detection of low level drugs and their metabolites concentrations using short chromatographic run times due to the sensitivity and selectivity of the technique.
A toxicology test, the LC/MS/MS technology and method for detection of drugs, provides specificity, sensitivity, precision and accuracy.
