Oral Fluid Fentanyl Drug Testing

Fentanyl Drug Testing

Fentanyl and its analogs are extremely fast-acting synthetic narcotic analgesics, of high potency and short duration of action. These drugs have similar dependency properties to that of morphine.

Fentanyl use, originally for chronic pain, has increased in illicit street-use and among healthcare workers due to the drug's euphoric effects and easy availability.


Our oral fluid screen and confirmation service detects the presense of fentanyl, acetylfentanyl, acrylfentanyl, butyrylfentanyl, and furanyl- fentanyl. Screening is conducted via enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and confirmation analysis is performed via liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).

Features & Benefits

  • Laboratory analysis provides confirmative evidence of use
  • Detects therapeutic and illicitly synthesized forms of fentanyl, acetylfentanyl, acrylfentanyl, butyrylfentanyl, and furanylfentanyl
  • Useful in many situations: pain management, dependency/ rehabilitation, methadone clinics, and drug courts
  • Screened via EIA and confirmed on LC-MS/MS equipment
  • Certified toxicologists and support representatives available to assist you
  • Wide range of customizable reporting and data management solutions to fit your needs
