Tox Testing

About 30% of a lab’s positive drugs of abuse screening results are turning out to be false for amphetamines, as well as for MDMA/ecstasy and opiates—is this high percentage of false positives reason for concern? One respondent pointed out that the predictive value of a positive drug screen result is always dependent on the pre-test probability that the patient has used the drug in question. Therefore, you can’t assign a universal positive predictive value to any particular drug screen, because it will depend on the patient population to which the test is applied.
