Note: Sample rejection criteria for this test is based on refrigerated conditions. While 6-MAM stability is best if frozen, positive findings are routinely found in non-frozen samples. If optimal stability is required for this analyte, freeze the specimen and order test 2276SP, 2276B or 2276U which includes Heroin Metabolites.
Promptly centrifuge and separate Serum or Plasma into a plastic screw capped vial using approved guidelines.
