MOR: The opiates such as heroin, morphine, and codeine are derived from the resin of the opium poppy. Morphine and morphine glucuronide might both be found in the urine sample of a person who has taken morphine. Heroin and Codeine are quickly metabolized to morphine in the body. Therefore, the presence of morphine or the metabolite, morphine glucuronide, in urine, is an indication of heroin, morphine and/or codeine use.
AMP, MET: Methamphetamines are central nervous system stimulants that produce alertness, wakefulness, increased energy, reduced hunger, and an overall feeling of well being. Large doses of methamphetamine could develop tolerances and physiological dependency and lead to its abuse. Both D and L forms of the isomers are controlled substances, and the legally allowable level for methamphetamine is set at 1000ng/ml in urine by the confirmatory GC/MS method as specified by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
COC: Cocaine is an alkaloid present in leaves of coca plant. It has been used medicinally as an anesthetic agent, but its addictive properties have minimized its modern daily use. As a potent central nervous system stimulant, cocaine has been defined as a controlled substance by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Cocaine is excreted in urine primarily as benzoylecgnonine in a short period of time. Benzoylecgnonine has a biological half-life of 5 to 8 hours, which is much greater than that of cocaine, and can generally be detected within 24-60 hours after cocaine use.
