Test Information
This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by Marshfield Labs.  It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.  This test is used for clinical purposes.  It should not be regarded as investigational or for research.
 
This test is a GCMS confirmation only for the barbiturates drug class. It is intended for use only in patients where an initial drug screening test has already been performed at the time of specimen collection (i.e. Point-of-Care drug screening cup, dipstick, etc.). The specimen will not be screened by immunoassay in the laboratory; it will only be tested by GCMS. If an initial drug screen has not been performed at the specimen collection site, it is more appropriate to order the "Barbiturates, Urine" (BAR) test code which includes an initial screen. The test will detect the presence of butalbital, amobarbital, pentobarbital, secobarbital and phenobarbital.
