Ethos Laboratories is a high complexity reference toxicology laboratory. Ethos’ wide range of testing options allow medical providers to choose the best test for their practice and patients. All qualitative testing is run using Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) or Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS). The addition of GC/MS to the qualitative section of testing increases the size of the qualitative menu to include analytes such as Gabapentin and Carisoprodol, while controlling cost. All confirmatory tests are run using Triple Quadrupole Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). Ethos is committed to providing the highest quality testing at a competitive cost.
Urinalysis Compliance Testing
Ethos Laboratories offers a wide range of urine compliance testing. Urine is the most common compliance specimen type and offers unique advantages over serum testing. Some of the advantages include ease of collection, typically higher drug concentrations, and an increased detection window.

Blood Compliance Testing
Ethos Laboratories also offers blood compliance testing to allow a medical practitioner a perspective that is not available from urine compliance testing. Urine compliance testing does have limitations and in select clinical cases steady-state blood levels are the only way to obtain the information. These levels will help document over- or under-medication, tolerance, and be relevant in medical legal issues in the event of a patients unexpected death.

Many providers send patients out for basic chemistry panels to measure the current status of the kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as blood sugar and blood proteins. Ethos offers comprehensive metabolic panels so a patient doesn’t need multiple blood draws for compliance and chemistry.
