Sleep Medication

LC-MS/MS Confirmation and Quantification of the following drugs: Zolpidem, and Zopiclone.

Suboxone Panel

LC-MS/MS Confirmation and Quantitation of the following compounds: Buprenorphine, Norbuprenorphine, Naloxone.

Urine Drug Screen

Immunoassay identification of the following drug classes: 6-Acetylmorphine, Amphetamines, Benzodiazepines, Buprenorphine, Cocaine, Ethanol, MDMA, MDA, Methadone, Opiates, Oxycodone, THC. Positive test results should be confirmed and quantified via LC-MS/MS testing. 

These panels have been created by CTR to provide the most comprehensive testing procedures for a variety of clinical applications. Any drugs not listed can be developed and added to any panel by request within a matter of weeks. CTR is currently focused predominantly with urine specimens as metabolite detection provides the most definitive results, cutting down in false positives through cross reactivity and adulteration. Metabolite detection is the only available method to rule out sample adulteration through specimen dosing.
