In addition to our drug screening services below we now have the ability to perform on-the-spot Breathalyzer testing for your employees as well as drivers. The drug screening process is very simple as we will provide the employee with a form and they can travel to the nearest testing facility. We will in turn bill you at a later date and provide you with the results.
Urine Drug Testing (5 Panel and 10 Panel)
Urine drug tests detect the presence or absence of drug metabolites in a urine sample. Metabolites are drug residues that remain in the body for some time after the effects of a drug have worn off, meaning a person was not necessarily under the influence of drugs at the time of the urine test. Urine tests detect and measure particular drug usage within the days prior. Urine samples are the most common method of drug testing for many reasons—Urine tests are painless, noninvasive and have a far longer detection period for most substances and drugs in comparison to blood testing. This form of testing allows for flexibility in choosing which substances to screen for.
DOT-Regulated Drug Testing
We offer DOT-regulated drug testing. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is under federal regulation and requires all employees who perform specific jobs or work in certain industries to be tested for drug use. The DOT requires that all drug testing is completed using the "split sample" method, in which the initial sample is split in two—one to be tested now, and one to be tested later if the first sample returns as positive (so that a confirmation test can be performed). We also provide medical review officers (MROs) to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the DOT drug testing process.
Hair Drug Testing
Future candidates and potential hires are most commonly drug-screened via a hair sample. Most drugs and illegal substances are detectable in a hair sample for up to 90 days, making hair drug testing a reliable way to reveal long-term or repetitive drug or substance use. Hair samples are a painless drug testing method, as a small hair sample of approximately 100-120 strands is cut from the crown—no hair is pulled and no hair follicles are tested—meaning only hair that has grown above the scalp is tested.
