Specimen Type
Blood
Requested Volume
3 mL
Minimum Volume
1.3 mL
Special Handling
Submit with Chain of Custody.
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.
Specimen Container
Gray top tube (Sodium Fluoride / Potassium Oxalate), Lavender top tube (EDTA)
