報告題目：False positive, negative, and unexpected Drug Testing Results in the Urine Toxicology Laboratory |
In 1995 I co-authored a short article entitled “False-positive Immunoassay Results for Urine Benzodiazepine in Patients Receiving Oxaprozin (Daypro)”. This was published when rapid urine drug screening test methods were first becoming available. The laboratory community was starting to realize that not all assays can be tested for all of the thousands of drugs, substances or endogenous compounds that may potentially cause result errors.
There are false positive, false negative and unexpected patient urine drug test results that occur in the Urine Toxicology laboratory.
How does one research these results and assist the clinician in helping to assess these results to treat their patient?
Unexpected urine drug test results can occur during any phase of the testing process; however, the most common usual results occur during the pre- analytical or patient collection phase. During this phase patients can provide “fake” urine, take substances that can affect the testing method, or they can adulterate/dilute their urine specimen.
Depending on the screening test method used, the test method can be impacted by a variety of substances that can produce either false negative, false positive or usual results. Screening results can also be different than the confirmation results making interpretation of patient results even more confusing.
During this presentation we will review a basic screening test method and confirmation method. And discuss some of these unexpected urine drug test results.
