Part Descriptions

LP15528-0   Dehydroepiandrosterone
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), is a natural steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands, the gonads, adipose tissue and the brain. DHEA is the precursor of androstenedione, testosterone and estrogen. It is the most abundant hormone in humans. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP7565-7   Saliva
Saliva is produced primarily by the parotid, submaxillary, and sublingual glands. It is secreted at the rate of 0-3 milliliters per minute which is affected by various factors including anxiety, hydration and hunger. Oral fluid is broadly used to test for drugs of abuse in employment and forensic settings, and is especially useful since it is difficult to adulterate, is quick and is non-invasive. Oral fluid is used to test a variety of analytes, including to test alcohol, HIV and other antibodies, therapeutic drugs and steroids, but its primary use is to test for drugs of abuse including amphetamines, cocaine and metabolites, opioids, methadone, cannabis and heroin.[PMID:17268583] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
