Measurement Uncertainty (MU)
Every laboratory value is an estimate of the true concentration of substance. MU is the 95% confidence interval around that estimate. 95% of the time, the true concentration will be within the range of the reported value ±MU. This value is based on analytical variability (precision) and does not reflect other factors such as sample collection and handling which may also affect the result.


Reported sodium = 140 mmol/L
Sodium MU = 1%
Expanded uncertainty = 140 mmol/L ± 1% or 140mmol/L ± 1.4 mmol/L
Interpretation - the true value of sodium in the sample is in the range 138.6-141.4 mmol/L, with 95% confidence.


Measurement Uncertainty

Tests for methadone metabolite EDDP. Results are for medical reasons only. Cross reacting substances from food, supplements or medication may cause false positives. Confirmatory testing by mass spectroscopy available upon request and subject to approval.

As a guide, but not exclusive list, the assay manufacturer has reported that the compounds below yield the following cross-reactivities with the methadone metabolite drug screen:
