Urine drug testing is an essential element of all drugs of abuse treatment and workplace monitoring programs. We create custom solutions by providing our clients with an accurate reflection of the state of their patient/clients health status, helping them to make better informed decisions.
Our services include:
Daily pickup from St. Lucie to Miami-Dade Counties
Same day client service from Indian River to Miami-Dade Counties
Testing Turn-Around-Times (TAT):
6 hours TAT from site collection of specimen to processing at lab
24 hours TAT from site collection of specimen for presumptive screens
48 hours TAT from site collection of specimen for confirmatory tests
Our Testing Process
Once a urine specimen is received, it is scanned into the system and receives a unique lab accession number for the most reliable identification and tracking.
Specimen Validity Testing; unless prior validity testing is shown to have been performed on the specimen, an aliquot of every specimen undergoes validity testing using pH values, specific gravity and creatinine to ensure it is a human specimen and that it has not been diluted or adulterated. All specimens must pass specimen validity testing in order to undergo presumptive screening and/or confirmatory testing.
An initial Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) test screens for the presence of opiates, benzodiazepines, illicit drugs and other prescribed or non-prescribed medications to give a presumptive result, which is qualitative. EIA screening identifies the presence or absence of drugs of a certain class; it cannot definitively confirm a specific drug or its quantity. It is recommended that all specimens which have positive EIA screening results be confirmed by Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LCMS).
If the EIA test result is positive, the specimen undergoes a unique extraction method involving our innovative methodology using a highly specific and sensitive method of Liquid chromatography (Tandem mass spectrometry LC/MS/MS) testing to determine the absence or presence of drugs and their levels.
