(a)As a laboratory, you must use the cutoff concentrations displayed in the following table for initial and confirmation drug tests. All cutoff concentrations are expressed in nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL). The table follows:
|Type of Drug or Metabolite||Initial Test||Confirmation Test|
|(1) Marijuana metabolites
(i) Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol-9-caroxylic acid (THC)
|(2) Cocaine metabolites
|(3) Phencyclidine (PCP)||25||25|
500 (Specimen must also contain amphetamine at a concentration of greater than or equal to 200 ng/mL
(5) Opiate metabolites
Test for 6-AM in the specimen. Conduct this test only when specimen contains morphine
at a concentration greater than or equal to 2000 ng/mL.
(b) On an initial drug test, you must report a result below the cutoff concentration as negative. If the result is at or above the cutoff concentration, you must conduct a confirmation test.
(c) On a confirmation drug test, you must report a result below the cutoff concentration as negative and a result at or above the cutoff concentration as confirmed positive.
(d) You must report quantitative values for morphine or codeine at 15,000 ng/mL or above.
