Nicotine Metabolite Urine Test

Cotinine, Urine
Sample Report
Specimen Type: Urine


Nicotine Metabolite Urine Test

This test is used to detect the primary metabolite of nicotine in urine.  There are many reasons for nicotine testing. For parents, smoking can be a tough issue. Nicotine urine testing is a fast and low cost way to help keep your teens honest about smoking and provide a gateway for conversation about the addictive substance. Additionally, employers are using nicotine urine testing as a part of pre-employment drug screening in order to reduce healthcare costs and support cessation in employees who smoke.

This nicotine urine test (metabolite or Cotinine test) is used to determine active tobacco use. The cutoff is set high to rule out passive inhalation (second-hand smoke).  A Nictoine Blood Test can be ordered by people who require a test with higher sensitivity for detecting passive exposure. 

Please note: A negative result will report as "negative" and will not have a quantitative (numerical) value. 

Turnaround time for the Nicotine test (cotinine test) is typically 1-2 business days.

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.

Incubation Period:

The Nicotine Metabolite test (cotinine test) can detect up to 7 days past exposure.


This nicotine test (cotinine test) has no requirements.
