Default Laboratory Question

Can somebody please let me know if I am correct with the scenario listed below.

Models is hiring three employees. Before the employees can start to work they are drug tested. The lab tech draws to blood to check for the following drugs Tricylic antidepressants, Benzodiazepines, Alcohols, and Cocaine. It does not indicate if mobile phases where used or a stationary phase. With the information that I provided is it to correct this scenario with the following codes.

80100 and 80101x5

Part two of the question if the applicant shows traces of cocaine in their system would you use the following system.

80100 and 80102 If somebody can tell me if I am correct I would appreciate it.
