Helping Doctors Provide Better Treatments
There are two common methods used for drug testing:
ZoeScripts Labs Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry goes further.
Instead of “Opiates” that a screen would have told you, your LC-MS report might tell you “Hydrocodone & Norhydrocodone”, which are both indicative of your patient’s prescription of hydrocodone; or it might tell you “6-acetyl morphine and codeine,” which means that your patient is using heroin rather than their prescription. Only confirmation testing can make this distinction definitively.
Benefits of LC-MS/MS
- Precise Results: Tests are far less susceptible to false positive and false negative results.
- Specificity: LC-MS/MS is able to identify individual drugs & drug metabolites as opposed to only drug classes.
- Sensitivity: Detection is greatly enhanced due to the ability to test at lower cutoff levels.
