Nicotine (Cotinine) Urine Test
Specimen Type: Urine
Nicotine (Cotinine) Urine Test (Labcorp)
This test is used to detect Cotinine, the primary metabolite of Nicotine in the urine. This test includes an initial screening with an automatic confirmatory test performed in the event that something is detected. Positive test results will include a numerical value for the level detected. Negative results will simply say "negative." A Nicotine Urine Screen that only provides qualitative (positive or negative) results is also available.
Nicotine is highly addictive and has been linked to a variety of health complications. Nicotine urine testing can be ordered by companies who are testing their employees or potential hires as part of a requirement for medical coverage or workplace health initiatives. This test is also useful for individuals who are testing for insurance requirements or parents who are concerned their child may be smoking or vaping. Cotinine is typically detectable in urine for 2-4 days after nicotine use.
Turnaround time for this test is typically 1-3 business days for negative results. Results can take up to 7-8 business days if confirmation testing is necessary.
