General Testing Questions

It is important to recognize the difference associated with testing for drugs-of-abuse using oral fluid verses urine. Oral fluid as a specimen type can detect drug use within minutes of consumption, whereas urine requires the ingested substances to be metabolized by the liver before detection. This is a process that can take hours. The ability to detect recent use means employers can determine fit-for-duty much more quickly and easily.

Oral fluid sample collection can be witnessed, which decreases the chances of adulteration. Sample collection is non-invasive and does not cause dignity or issues with collectors/donors of opposing gender.

  • Screens for recent use, does not address lifestyle/historical use
  • No known adulterates
  • Witness collection
  • Results within minutes
  • Less invasive: no dignity or gender issues
  • Laboratory and MRO supported
