When you need to screen your employees for drugs, you don’t need any additional hassle. There are three ways that Slaton, working with the NCF, can help you with lab-based drug testing. These drug test kits are perfect for testing on demand for employees in trouble and as needed for potential hires.
Three Types of Drug Test Kits Provide Flexibility
There are three types of testing possibilities. Urine drug testing can be done with lab-based results or onsite results with negatives confirmed by MRO review. The third method is called oral fluids testing, and it has been gaining in popularity. The best part is that these drug test kits aren’t very expensive.
1. Lab Testing
Your employee or potential employee goes to a collection site near your worksite. There are two kinds of tests, as you may know. The 5 panel test checks for Amphetamines, Cocaine, Marijuana, PCP and Opiates. The 10 panel test adds the capability to test for Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Methadone, Propoxyphene, and Methaqualone.
The results are fast. Lab testing services can report negatives in around 24 hours and positives in 48 to 72 hours. You can specify DOT or non-DOT lab testing.
2. Onsite Screening
Sometimes you need to act fast. For that, you can have onsite or clinic testing that gives you results in as little as ten minutes. If a positive is determined, a SAMSHA/NIDA approved laboratory will do a backup test using gas chromatography and mass spectrometry.
To prevent cheating, this test includes the LabCorp Split Cup. A chain of custody form goes with each test. To confirm the positives, there’s overnight air delivery of all samples. A typical 6 panel test looks for amphetamines, cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines, opiates, and PCP.
3. Oral Fluid Testing
Using a Quantisal collection device, a gender-neutral specimen is collected. Overnight air delivery ensures fast testing for all samples. Positives are first confirmed by GC/MS testing. If a positive is found, there is an MRO review. This six panel test kits show the same six drug types as the onsite urine screening 6-panel test. Results come in as little as 24 hours and generally no later than 48 hours.
