Lab-based Urine Drug Testing
This drug screening method is the only approved methodology for DOT mandated testing. It is used to detect recent use, making it ideal for all testing scenarios including pre-employment, random testing and post-accident. Laboratory-based urine testing is cost-effective and allows organizations to conduct screening for a wide range of illicit and prescription drugs. It also provides a strong case should there be any legal challenges as testing is forensically defensible and has become the standard for evidence of current use.
With presumptive positive (non-negative) specimens, the laboratory will perform a GC/MS confirmation to definitively detect the drugs and/or drug metabolites present in the sample. This is the only way to provide a distinction between illicit, prescription or over the counter medications.
Oral Fluid Laboratory Testing Services
Oral fluid testing is recognized as a reliable and innovative test format, ideal for detecting recent drug use. The non-invasive method does not require special collection facilities necessitated by the privacy requirements of a urine collection. Additionally, because each collection can be directly observed, donor tampering with the specimen is virtually eliminated.
As the point of contact for employers, employees and drug testing facilities, the MRO (Medical Review Officer) protects the integrity and confidentiality of the drug testing results and other personal health-related information. An MRO is a licensed physician who is responsible for receiving and reviewing laboratory results generated by an employer’s drug testing program and evaluating medical explanations for certain drug test results. Per DOT regulations all DOT drug screens must be reviewed by an MRO.
