Drug Testing Products
Urine Testing – Non-DOT and DOT
Urine testing, one of the most common screening methods, is an accurate and reliable way to detect casual drug use that occurred within the past 72 hours. We offer both non-regulated (non-DOT) and regulated (DOT) drug tests. Although widely used for pre-employment screening, since detection in a urine test is relatively short, it is also a perfect solution for post-accident, random or reasonable suspicion drug tests.
Our default drug screen is a 12 panel test, but other types of panels are also available, including healthcare panels. In addition to screening the urine for drugs, Quest Diagnostics also screens for any adulterants present in the specimen due to donor contamination.
If the initial drug screen detects the possible presence of one of the relevant drugs, a GC/MS confirmation test is automatically performed at no charge to the client. Negative drug results are typically returned within 24 hours. Positive confirmations may take an additional 24 hours.
Hair testing is becoming more and more popular for the purposes of pre-employment testing. The detection window for this type of test is approximately 90 days, which allows the employer to determine if the candidate has a recent history of drug use without providing the applicant time to abstain before a job search. Another crucial benefit of hair testing is that there is no known way for a subject to intentionally falsify hair test results.
Breath Alcohol Testing
The purpose of breath alcohol testing is to determine current impairment. Therefore, timeliness is extremely important, even more so when you are aware of how quickly alcohol is absorbed into the system. Breath alcohol testing is typically used for post-accident or reasonable suspicion purposes. It is also required as a random test for DOT employees, such as truck drivers or pilots.
