There are three types of regular workplace drug tests.
The first, a point of collection urine test offers instant results. We use five- to 10-panel instant tests, depending on the nature and number of substances being tested for.
The second is a lab-based drug test. The urine sample is divided into two containers and sent to a lab for testing. Results are generally available within 24 – 48 hours.
The third is an oral drug test using a saliva sample. This oral test can be administered as either a Point of Site test or at a lab. It is a practical drug test option for workplaces where there are no securable washroom facilities available.
All non-negative test results are reviewed and confirmed by a Medical Review Officer.
All US Department of Transport (DOT) urine tests are sent to a lab for testing in accordance with 49 CFR Part 40 procedures.
