Workplace drug testing helps employers ensure their employees’ safety and avoid problems down the road. Drug testing is a great way to prevent the use of illegal drugs on the job and during employee time off. The cost of testing employees is outweighed by the production increase from a drug free environment. In some cases, drug testing employees is a requirement.

Urine Drug Testing – Laboratory-based urine testing is time-tested, scientifically-proven, widely used and applicable for all drug testing reasons. Our dependable turnaround times drive timely business decisions. Specimens go through a two-tiered testing process. The initial screening is performed on one portion of the specimen and is designed to rapidly isolate negative specimens from those that need additional testing to confirm the outcome. Negative results are often released within 24 hours where non-negative screens are typically released within an additional 24-72 hours. Our standard drug screening checks for amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine, marijuana, methadone, methaqualone, opiates, phencyclidine, propoxyphene, and alcohol.
DOT (SAMSHA) Testing – Urine testing is the only drug test type approved for federally mandated testing. To follow standardized procedures established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), urine test results are evaluated by a Medical Review Officer (MRO), five substances (amphetamines, cannabinoids, cocaine, opiates and phencyclidine) are tested for in a required SAMHSA-certified lab.
Hair Drug Tests – In side-by-side comparison studies with urinalysis, hair drug testing has uncovered significantly more drug use. In two independent studies hair drug testing uncovered 4 to 8 times as many drug users as urinalysis.
