Court Ordered Urine Testing

Urine Testing

Urine analysis is primarily used because of its low cost. Urine drug testing is one of the most common testing methods used. The enzyme-multiplied immune test is the most frequently used urinalysis. Complaints have been made about the relatively high rates of false positives using this test.

Urine drug tests screen the urine for the presence of a parent drug or its metabolites. The level of drug or its metabolites is not predictive of when the drug was taken or how much the patient used.

Rather, it is simply a confirmatory report indicating the presence of the parent drug or its metabolites.

5 Panel Urine Test

A 5-panel test is the most common workplace drug test. It is used by local, state and federal companies and government agencies including the DOT. It tests for marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, opiates(Heroine) and phencyclidine (PCP).

Common pain medications such as codeine, morphine and oxycodone are also tested in the opiate category.

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamines
  • Meth-Amphetamines
  • Opiates
  • Heroine

10 Panel Urine Test

The 10 panel drug test is used by private employers. Non-union companies can require their employees to take this type of test, while union based companies must work the unions to show grounds for reasonable suspicion.

 This test screens a total of 10 drugs. It allows an employer to determine the health status of new and existing employees.

  • Same 5 in 5 Panel Tests plus . . .
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Methadone
  • Methaqualone
  • Propoxyphene

Oral Fluid/Saliva Testing

Saliva / oral fluid-based drug tests can generally detect use during the previous few days. Is better at detecting very recent use of a substance. THC may only be detectable for 2–24 hours in most cases. On site drug tests are allowed per the Department of Labor. Detection in saliva tests begins almost immediately upon use of the following substances, and lasts for approximately the following times:

  • Alcohol: 6-12 Hours
  • Marijuana: 1-24 Hours

A disadvantage of saliva based drug testing is that it is not approved by FDA or SAMHSA for use with DOT / Federal Mandated Drug Testing. Oral fluid is not considered a bio-hazard unless there is visible blood; however, it should be treated with care.

Hair Testing

Courts will require hair testing because of the long-lasting residuals of a positive drug test be achieved. Results from hair testing is very accurate. Especially over prolonged use, drug work their way thru the user’s blood system and ultimately wind on in the hair. By retrieving a small portion of hair use for testing will find most drugs used over a period of time. A few key features of a hair test:

  • Detects prolonged drug use to 90 days
  • Results returned within 5 days
  • Hair testing is relatively tamper proof

A sample of hair is cut as close to the scalp as possible, is purified of external substances and then liquefied for testing.
