Tobacco Testing

There are two ways to test for tobacco. One is lab-based urine, the other is hair. They both test quantitative nicotine levels and are sent to a laboratory. These results are usually available within a week.

TESTING METHODS: 🧪Urine and Hair

DNA testing is often used to determine genetic relationships. Using a non-invasive buccal swab, the cheek cells are scraped and sent to the lab for testing. The test may include mother, father, and child or just father and child; it may also include siblings and grandparents. The confidential results are back in approximately 3-7 business days.

TESTING METHODS: 🧪Buccal (Cheek) Swab

Traditional Testing

Traditional urine testing is the most practical and widely-used method of drug detection, as most drugs are detectable in the urine for 1–7 days. We have found that urine testing is best used for random and follow-up testing when the individual does not know they are going to be tested.

USED FOR
🧪Drug, Alcohol, Tobacco Testing

Rapid Testing

Rapid (instant) testing gives an answer right away, with a Negative or Non-Negative result. If the test is Non-Negative, it is sent off to the lab for confirmation testing. Lab-based urine testing does not provide an immediate answer and is sent to the lab once collected.
