Approved for Federally Mandated Drug Testing
Urine testing is the only drug test approved for federally mandated testing. To follow standardized procedures established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), urine test results are evaluated by a Medical Review Officer (MRO), five substances (amphetamines, cannabinoids, cocaine, opiates, and phencyclidine) are tested for in a required SAMHSA-certified lab. The Department of Transportation’s (DOT) rule, 49 CFR Part 40, describes required procedures for conducting workplace drug and alcohol testing for the federally regulated transportation industry. Our dependable turnaround times drive timely business decisions. Specimens go through a two-tiered testing process. The initial screening is performed on one portion of the specimen and is designed to rapidly isolate negative specimens from those that need additional testing to confirm the outcome. Negative results are often released within 24 hours, whereas nonnegative screens are typically released within an additional 24-72 hours.
