Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 3 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
45105n is the lab coding on the GC/MS panel run. SAP is "Substance Abuse Panel" which is defined to be a standard employee drug test. This is much different from figuring out what killed a person than what an employee is doing.
5-50: 5 is the panel standard and 50 is the ng/ml threshold confirm on the GC/MS (This means they confirm with intense accuracy only. That is good.)
6AM: opiate panel for morphine/codeine/heroin metabolites requested additionally (stay away from prescription pain killers for the most part and heroin.)
MDMA: this is an MDA-panel. (Any type of molly/ecstasy will generally have something in the MDA panel metabolites)
T: (please see below)
So basically your employer has a 5 panel with a standard low threshold confirm and added a few other drugs with the panel. I hope that helps!!
Source: Me. I did a lot of drug testing research after I got bit in the ass nearly by one which could have ruined my high paying job. I spent time sleuthing their drug testing policy, making calls, and sneaking around inside DISA's employer extranet to find out what is going on.
I am willing to wager, without EXACTLY knowing for sure, that the T may or may not mean Tryptamines. God I would hope not. I would just tell that employer to go stick it up their ass and leave. That means they are paying well over $300 per test since tryptamine confirms are so intensive and difficult that it takes man hours to do! Dude, I would seriously ask for our sake if you can. If this comes back as tryptamines, I would re-evaluate the place of employment as they are crazy to be pissing (no pun intended) their money away. This means that you can't effectively do LSD, Shrooms, DMT, and anything under "Tryptamines" family.
Follow up update:
This is definitely a test panel for GC/MS. I have the lists of the testing types. So with what Micklemouse said, I will go back and redact my statement above. Yet I will leave it to serve as an example of "jumping to conclusions."

Thanks... I really appreciate that. It very well might be just that. I work for an airline, and I don't think they spare any expense on that side of the house.... Do you think it could be tramadol? Slim chance, since ultram is the original name.... Just thinking. Thanks again.
It stands for "Test". It would be useful to know the manufacturer of the test as on some kits it indicates an invalid result (Sanitoets for example), & on some it indicates a negative result, meaning the target drug is not present. An invalid result could be due to degradation of the reagents in the kit, a diluted sample or a sample that has been left for too long before being read Tramadol is abbreviated to TRA & Ultram is a brand name not the "original" name, tricyclics to TCA & tryptamines are not tested for on a standard urinalysis kit.
Thank you Mickle for coming in and giving the information that my dumb-self, at the time, should have been able to give. I have the testing lists too. D:
I wasn't thinking and I was in haste. I will back up Micklemouse and say that this is fully correct. I have updated my previous post and put the wrong information in quotes for future readers. All the correct info is outside that.
