Comments

The reference range is undefined.

Barbituates may be detected in the urine 1-21 days after ingestion. The urine barbiturate screening test detects the presence of the barbiturate secobarbital at a concentration of 200 ng/mL or greater. Other barbiturates are detected: call laboratory for information regarding a specific barbiturate.

This method is unable to distinguish between specific barbituates and should be used for screening purposes only. Confirmation testing should be considered for positive screens. Barbiturate Confirmation Urine
