Drug & Alcohol Testing Process

Drug & Alcohol Testing Process

We provide Drug & Alcohol Testing for a wide range of employers across various workplace industries.
Our testing procedure ensures all aspects of your business requirements are met and enhance workplace safety.

Below outlines the process of the testing.

Urine Specimen can be collected on-site at your designated location or via our collection site.
It can be screened onsite instantly using instant, immunoassay based test cups or sent to a laboratory for screening.

Specimen with non-negative results will be handled by the laboratory for confirmation testing. 
In case a urine specimen was used for screening, the same specimen will be used for confirmatory testing.

A non-negative specimen is not the same as a positive drug test and must not be used to the detriment of the donor.

The specimen will be immediately sealed, bar-coded, and dispatched to the SAMHSA UKAS ISO:17025 or similar accredited laboratory facility for confirmation testing. 

The accredited laboratory uses state of the art and fully accredited LCMS or/and GC/MS techniques to screen samples for the presence of the particular drug that was found to be present in the above screening test.

Positive results will include a brief conclusion/statement of findings, from the reporting MRO.

For example, if a positive test concerns a drug type that can be legally used within the country for medicinal purposes, the report will state whether a related medication was declared by the specimen donor at the time of the sample collection and whether the quantity of the substance found is consistent with a therapeutic dose of this medication – or not.
For example, if a positive test concerns a drug type that can be legally used.
