    I am seeing that companies have cut off levels and confirmation levels.

    There is the 50 something cut off level and 15 something cut off level.

    Which one do you need to pass? They called INITIAL vs CONFIRMED.

    I wonder for how many days you have to stay clean to get that level? Way more than for 50 cut off level?

    Yeah and I wonder for how many days you have to stay clean to get that level? Way more than for 50 cut off level?

    Wrong. The most widely used cutoff is 50 with 15 on confirmation. This is more controlled by recommendations from SAMSHA and several other federal departments not by state recommendations. Sometimes a 20 ng/ml cutoff with a 10 ng/ml confirmation is used. Companies (or court systems) do get to choose which set to use but 50 and 15 are probably used over 90% of the time. To find out more of what this means, do an advanced search by posts from me and use the terms "31 metabolites" in quotes and check those posts. Look at the one from October of 2006 first.

    OK, so its really the same thing eh? If you pass 50 then you pass the 15 thing as well (or most likely) right?

    Screw not smoking for weeks and then holding your breath for the results. Substitute your urine. Use a fake penis, best one I've seen yet is from, it has no loud switches and looks like a real penis. Apparently all you do to start the flow is to pull on the head, then release when your done. You could do this right in front of someone and no one would be the wiser.

    50 ng for the sum of all 31 metabolites, 15 ng for the one specific metabolite that is most prevalent.

    So its not like the 15ng confirm is ~3 times as sensitive a test, per se. just narrows the search down..
