Specialized Drug Testing (Hair, Urine, Nail, Blood, Saliva)
The purpose of drug testing is to determine accurately the presence of drugs of abuse in urine, hair, nail, saliva or blood. The price is affordable and it will depend on the drug testing panel required, the source of the sample and the purpose of the testing.
We offer a variety of drug testing including Instant Drug Screens using as samples urine or saliva. If necessary the specimen is sent for laboratory confirmation. In addition, hair testing can also be collected on site.
A brief consultation could be provided to determine the most accurate and effective method for drug collection, many factors will be taken into consideration. All collections will require the consent of the patient or participant or the present and consent of the guardian if a minor.
Results are typically reported in 24 hours for negatives, 48-72 hours for positives. All presumptive positive results go through a confirmation process to ensure accurate results. Screening and confirmation testing are performed using different methodologies that require separate cut-off levels.
Hair Drug Testing
Hair Drug Testing provides significant advantages over traditional drug testing. The advantages include a wider window of detection, less invasive and easier collection, and virtual elimination of tampering with the test. The standard hair-5 panel includes cocaine, opiates, amphetamines (including ecstasy), PCP, and marijuana. There are other hair panels available depending on the substances of use or in need of detection. Other opioids could be detected with an extended opioid panel.
Urine Drug Testing
The panel could include Amphetamines, Cocaine, Opiates, THC (Marijuana), Phencyclidine (PCP), Alcohol (Ethanol), Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Methadone, Propoxyphene, Steroids, Diuretics, GHB, Synthetic Cannabinoids, Synthetic Stimulants, and others.
Fingernail Drug Testing
Highly stable, simple to collect, fingernails provide a test sample that is at the cutting edge of drug and alcohol testing.
Substances as Amphetamines, Cannabinoids, Cocaine, Opiates, Phencyclidine, Benzodiazepines, Barbiturates, Methadone, Propoxyphene, Oxycodone, Meperidine, Tramadol, Fentanyl, Buprenorphine, and others can be detected in a nail sample.
EtG testing is typically used to evaluate and monitor whether an individual is abstaining from the consumption of alcohol. EtG is a direct metabolite of alcohol(ethanol). Its presence in urine may be used to detect recent ethanol ingestion, even after ethanol is no longer measurable. The presence of EtG in urine is an indicator that ethanol was ingested and can be detected in urine for up to 80 hours after ingestion.
Ethyl Glucuronide or ethanol (EtG) is found in beer, wine, and liquor produced by the fermentation of yeast, sugars, and starches.
Phosphatidylethanol (PEth) is a group of phospholipids formed only in the presence of ethanol. Levels of phosphatidylethanol in blood are used as markers of previous alcohol consumption.
Since the formation of PEth is specifically dependent on ethanol, the diagnostic specificity of PEth as an alcohol biomarker is theoretically 100%
PEth is a mid to long-term alcohol biomarker, and a positive result (measuring phosphatidylethanol species 16:0/18:1) is an indication of alcohol exposure during the previous weeks prior to sample collection.
Synthetic cannabinoids (“K2/Spice”)
Synthetic stimulants (“Bath Salts”)
