GBI tox screen: Gbi tests for drugs in biological fluids and tissues, for carbon monoxide in blood, for poisons in biological fluids, tissues and source materials, for volatiles (gases and vapors) in biological materials, and for alcohol content in biological fluids. Whether or not they test specifically for Amoxicillin could be determined with a quick phone call, but suspect this must be specifically requested.
