Availability: Public Implement Date: 3 June 2008

Refer AS/NZS 4308:2008; procedures - Substance Testing – Probation and Parole, Substance Testing – Corrective Service Facilities and Substance Testing Random – Corrective Service Facilities


1. Presumptive test cut-off levels (on-the-spot test kits and laboratory presumptive tests)
NOTE: When immunoassay test kits used to test a sample for a particular drug exceed the relevant cut-off level (that is, produce a “positive result”), the officer must be aware that cross-reacting compounds may increase the concentration of the drug class. Due caution needs to be taken to determine what portion may be a cross-reacting compound and what portion (if any) may represent illicit drug use.
Immunoassay test kits used in initial presumptive testing are designed to detect the relevant class of drug whose presence is of a quantity higher than the following cut-off levels—

2. CONFIRMATORY TEST CUT-OFF LEVELS
The officer must carefully read the laboratory notes. If confirmatory test results are less than the cut-off level, then results must be taken as negative.
