About Our Nicotine Metabolite Screen, Blood
This blood test measures nicotine and its metabolites to help monitor success of tobacco smoking cessation programs, detect passive exposure, and evaluate non-tobacco nicotine exposure. This test is used for the detection of nicotine and two primary nicotine metabolites-- 3-OH cotinine and cotinine-- to determine the tobacco exposure status of an individual. Nicotine has a short half-life of approximately 60 minutes. The half-life of the primary metabolites is longer and provides a larger window of detection for tobacco exposure.
Nicotine is a stimulant drug from the nightshade family of plants. Nicotine is commonly found in cigarettes and other tobacco products and is addictive.
Nicotine can be detected for up to 2 days after initially taken in.
