    Abstract

    The initiation of a mass drug abuse screening program of military personnel as part of the nation's effort to stem the use of illegal or otherwise abused drugs placed an extreme demand on normal laboratory tests and personnel. Although several methods existed for the detection of opiates, barbiturates, and amphetamines in urine [1–4], none had been employed for a testing program in which 3000 to 4000 urine specimens were to be analyzed daily for each of the three classes of drugs.
