New Synthetic Opiate Panel for Sweat Patch
Pharmchem has just announced a new expanded opiate panel for the sweat patch that will detect Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Oxycodone, and Oxymorphone. The new panel adds these synthetic opiates to the existing panel for Cocaine, Opiates (6-MAM, Codeine, and Morphine), Amphetamine/Methamphetamine, PCP, and Marijuana.
The new expanded opiate panel will be screened with LC/MS/MS and confirmed with LG/MS/MS, producing a very accurate and reliable test result. Cutoff level for the four drugs is 10 ng.
Note that the expanded opiate panel is an optional add-on panel to the existing five panel tests. Customers may order either the traditional five panel testing, or may order the five panel plus the extended opiate panel. The expanded opiate panel will not be available as a stand-alone panel.
A silver “Expanded Opiate Panel” sticker is placed on the Chain of Custody Form to notify the lab to test for the synthetic opiates. The additional charge for the extended opiate panel is $37.
Sweat patch customers who wish to implement the expanded opiate panel with their existing Chain of Custody forms should contact AlcoPro at 800 227-9890 to discuss arrangements for adding this new panel to their testing. AlcoPro will supply the Expanded Opiate Panel stickers for re-orders and new customers.
