This test is used to look for Fentanyl in a urine sample. Testing will include a screen and, if results warrant, confirmatory testing. Confirmation will be performed at no additional cost if anything is detected in the initial screening. A positive result will provide a numerical value for the level detected.
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid which is sometimes prescribed to treat severe pain, such as in cancer patients. There has been an increase recently in reports of Fentanyl abuse. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that between 2013 and 2014 there was an 80% increase in overdose deaths attributed to synthetic opioids such as Fentanyl. Fentanyl is produced and sold illegally due to the euphoric high it produces which is similar to Heroin. However, Fentanyl is significantly more potent that Heroin and carries a high risk of overdose. Fentanyl is sometimes combined with other drugs such as Heroin or Cocaine which can increase the health risk due to a person not knowing what or how much they are actually taking. Most standard drug testing panels do not include testing for Fentanyl so a test which looks for Fentanyl specifically is required. Fentanyl is typically detectable in urine for 1-2 days after use but detection times may vary based on a number of factors such as a person's metabolism and how much they took.
Turnaround for this test is typically 3-6 business days but may take longer if confirmatory testing is required.
At this time, Request A Test does not offer DOT (Department of Transportation) certified testing.
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Please note that not all lab locations are able to perform the collections for urine drug testing. When placing a testing order online you will only be able to select from lab locations which are able to perform this type of testing.
This Fentanyl Drug Test is intended to screen for drugs of abuse and is not appropriate for pain management or therapeutic monitoring. Customers who require pain management testing should consult their prescribing physician.
