(a) When the laboratory reports that a specimen is dilute, you must, as the MRO, report to the DER that the specimen, in addition to being negative or positive, is dilute.
(b) You must check the “dilute” box (Step 6) on Copy 2 of the CCF.
(c) When you report a dilute specimen to the DER, you must explain to the DER the employer’s obligations and choices under §40.197, to include the requirement for an immediate recollection under direct observation if the creatinine concentration of a negative-dilute specimen was greater than or equal to 2mg/dL but less than or equal to 5mg/dL.
