An opiates screening test is a locally determined panel of 5-15 urine drug tests for commonly used/administered opioids along with other legal or illegal substances often used by patients. The Table below provides two example of common UDT Panels. If a screening test is positive an additional confirmatory test is sometimes indicated.
Standard Drugs of Abuse
Expanded Drugs of Abuse
|1||Ethyl Alcohol||Ethyl Alcohol|
|8||Phencyclidine (PCP)||Phencyclidine (PCP)|
Note: These are suggested/typical Urine Drug Test (UDT) Screening Panels. Your Lab’s actual UDT Screening Panel may vary.
There is no evidence for the most effective UDT Screening Panel. These are only suggested screening panels.
