At Aspirar Medial Lab, we closely monitor each patient specimen throughout the testing life cycle until results are reviewed and reported to the physician. Results are available with our secure, HIPAA-compliant website, or other method requested.
Semi-Quantitative Screening & Full Confirmation
We use Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) to screen for the presence of a drug or metabolite. When positive on the EIA screen, the sample is sent to conﬁrmation for more speciﬁc analytical methods, if ordered by the physician. When this semi-quantitative test is positive, full confirmation is available.
We are committed to our role in educating physicians on the requirement by OIG/HHS that all testing ordered must be deemed medically necessary. As part of our compliance plan, we offer full disclosure of the CPT codes we will bill with, along with the corresponding Medicare fees so that providers may consider those facts as they make their selections.
We offer cutting-edge resources for understanding the specific needs of patients based on their unique biochemistry. In addition, we have pharmacists on staff to answer any medication questions.
As a convenience for the physicians and patients, we will pick up the samples at physician's medical office for test analysis. Results will be available online or integrated into practices EMR. Furthermore, testing supplies can be ordered through the lab.

TESTING PROCESS & INTERPRETATION
Our CLIA certified laboratory provides drug testing services to medical practices nationwide. Below is an overview of some of the most common panel we offer:
Screening & Comprehensive Drug Monitoring – Urine Includes:
Confirmations (THC, Cocaine, PCP, MDMA, Heroin, Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, Alprazolam, Diazepam, Triazolam, Lorazepam, Temazepam, Buprenorphine, Carisoprodol, Fentanyl, Meperidine, Methadone, Morphine, Codeine, Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, Tramadol, Tapentadol, Alcohol in EIA orders for a comprehensive drug monitoring – urine include validity testing (creatinine, pH, specific gravity, oxidant)
1. Specimen Validity Testing
Once a urine specimen is received in one of our labs, it is scanned into the system and receives a lab accession number for the most reliable identification and tracking. Afterwards, the sample undergoes validity testing using pH values, specific gravity and creatinine to ensure it is a human sample and that it has not been diluted or adulterated.
2. Initial Screening
An initial Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) test screens for the presence of opiates, benzodiazepines, illicits and other prescribed or non-prescribed medications.
3. Confirmation Testing
If the EIA test result is positive, the sample undergoes confirmation testing through liquid chromatography: a tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) is used when optimal specificity and sensitivity are required to determine the absence or presence of your patients’ prescribed medications as well as the presence of non-prescribed medications or illicits. The methodology to obtain confirmation depends on the type of drug being tested.
4. Results Report
Results are delivered in a comprehensive report, which includes your patient’s normalized value and compares it to a reference database.
