Abstract

A rapid cocaine screening test, the Abuscreen OnTrak assay, was compared with the EMIT (enzyme-multiplied immunoassay technique) screening test to determine relative accuracy in 450 newborn infants sequentially tested for urinary cocaine during a 6-week period at a large urban hospital. The Abuscreen Ontrak screen had a sensitivity of 96% and a specificity of 100%.
