Comments

The reference range is undefined.

The urine opiate screening test detects the presence of morphine and codeine at concentration of 300 ng/mL or greater. Other opiates, oxycodone, hydromorphone, and hydrocodone may be detected if present at sufficient concentrations. The opiate screen does not detect fentanyl or buprenorphine. Confirmation testing should be considered for positive screens. See Opiate, confirmation.
