FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I collect the urine and send in a specimen?

Collection and shipping guidelines are included in the PHT reference guide.  A copy is provided with your new account supplies.  Please read these instructions carefully.  PHT also offers telephonic training and client service support.

How long does it take for results?

PHT screens urine specimens by enzyme immunoassay (EIA).  An immunoassay is a test that used antibodies to detect the presence of drugs and other substances in urine.  The initial screening process does not measure the specific amount of drug present in urine samples.  It provides either a positive or negative result, indicating the presence or absence of detectable drug.

Urine Screening Cut-off Levels by EIA

Methamphetamine                                                  1000 ng/mL

Barbiturates                                                                  200 ng/mL

Benzodiazepines                                                          200 ng/mL

Cocaine Metabolite (Benzoylecgonine)            300 ng/mL

Ethanol                                                                         0.04 gm/dL

What Testing methodology does PHT use for confirmations?

Confirmations are available by thin layer chromatography (TLC), radioimmunossay (RIA), gas chromatography (GC), gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS).  GC/MS is used to confirm presumptive positive drug screen specimens obtained from PHT’s instant on-site screening devices.

Why are screening and confirmation cut-off levels different?

Simply stated, screening and confirmation testing are performed using different testing methodologies that require different cut-off levels.  The immunoassay tests used to perform initial drug screening are designed to detect a wide range of chemically similar compounds that react with the antibodies which are at the core of the chemistry making up the tests.  In contrast, GC/MS confirmatory testing detects specific metabolites that provide identification and quantification of a specific drug.
