Other Testing Services

MSDT offers DOT, NONDOT, and Consortium drug and alcohol services.  For these services, MSDT may pull your random lists, collect the samples, send to the lab and medical review officer (MRO) and then send the results to the designated employer representative (DER)

This Department of Transportation (DOT) screen uses a urine specimen for the following drugs: Opiates, Extended Opiates, PCP, Amphetamines, Methamphetamines, Marijuana, and Cocaine. A DOT-approved chain of custody form is used during the collection process. A split sample is collected and both specimens are sent to a SAMHSA-certified laboratory for testing.

TESTING METHODS: 🧪Urine, Oral Fluid/Saliva (not until the labs and devices are approved)

Department of Transportation (DOT) Drug Screen Testing
Medical Review Officer (MRO) Review

According to regulations of the DOT (and many states), drug screens must be reviewed by a Medical Review Officer (MRO). An MRO is a licensed Medical Doctor (M.D.) with a history of substance abuse diagnostic work. During the review, the doctor may contact and speak directly with the donor to verify medication history. This service is also available for non-DOT testing when requested.

This non-DOT screen uses a urine specimen to test for five drugs: Opiates, Extended Opiates, PCP, Amphetamines, Methamphetamines, Marijuana, and Cocaine. This test may be expanded to a larger screen which may include: Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Methadone, Fentanyl, and more. Additionally, a urine alcohol (ETG) screen may be added.

TESTING METHODS: 🧪Urine, Oral Fluid/Saliva, Hair

Non-DOT Drug Screen Testing
DOT: FMCSA Consortium

DOT regulated employers are required to have a drug and alcohol testing program according to regulations. For single owner operators, joining a consortium is required. It is impossible to do 50% random drug testing on one driver. A Consortium/Third Party Administrator (C/TPA) will manage the random testing for owner operators and smaller DOT regulated employers.
