Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 1 year ago.
Most likely, there are other factors that are unpredictable like how fast your body metabolizes the drug

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

so i see a bbunch of defernt detection times what are your thoughts of 2lines with about 105 hours since last use for a lab detection of urine?

Expert:  Chris C. replied 1 year ago.
2 lines (which depending on the line size is pretty normal) should clear out below the established legal detection levels no later than 96 hrs from ingestion. You should clear the test without any problems.

so if my test was done on friday at the lab i would recieve a call from the mro on monday if i have failed

Hello,

Thanks for using Just Answer. Do you still need help?

 

 

Expert:  Chris C. replied 1 year ago.
No. If you fail the test the sample is sent for verification using different lab test to insure the result is correct. It can take several days to hear back from them depending on their notification process. Many mail out a letter which can take a few days.
