tests. SWIM was wondering the same thing, will methadone trigger a positive result on the standard immunoassay test for opiates
SWIM drug tests EACH and EVERYTIME methadone is ingested. SWIM has never ever seen a positive result on the six panel for the OPI strip.
HOWEVER, further investigation revealed that the OPI test (immunoassay) tested for 1) codeine
Based on this information, SWIM was lead to believe that if one wanted to test for the presence of methadone, than they would need a separate test; one that specifically tests for methadone as methadone does not metabolize in the same fashion that other opiates do.
SWIM uses drug tests every time methadone is involved, different ones at that. Sometimes SWIM uses the OPI test, sometimes the MORP test, and sometimes the plain old NIDA-6 test.
SWIM has NEVER tested + for OPI *ON THE IMMUNOASSAY *, SWIM has never sent the urine sample for GCMS to ID what the urine would test positive for.
If anybody has information on methadone and drug tests, please feed SWIM's brain!
