Dear justfranc-ga

Thank you for allowing me an opportunity to answer your interesting
question. Having worked in a lab now for many years (in law
enforcement) I can easily explain this confusing code for you:

38855N SAP 10-50+MDMA W/NIT is a urinalysis test for the presence of
drugs commonly used for pre-employment, post-accident or random
testing purposes by employers.

The ?38855N? is merely the lab testing code that means little to you,
the test party, in terms of the test.

?SAP-10? (the most common drug screening test) is a ?Substance Abuse
Panel? or drug screening for 10 different substances including:

Benzodiazepines (ValiumŽ)
Opiates (Codeine)
Propoxyphene (DarvonŽ)

The ?50? refers to the 50ng/ml cutoff level for the drugs being tested
for. Cut-off level and detection limit are two factors influencing a
test?s sensitivity. Cut-off level refers to the concentration of a
drug necessary to indicate a positive reading on the test. The
?detection limit? of the test is the concentration below which a
particular drug is undetectable by the method used.

?W/Nit? refers to an additional nitrite test to determine if the
specimen has been potentially adulterated with chemicals, supplements
or additives in an attempt to tamper of interfere with test results.

?+MDMA? means a secondary test is requested for the presence of
methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy).

So there you have it. That?s what a ?38855N SAP 10-50+MDMA W/NIT? is.
The best way to beat this test is to refrain from using these illegal
