Methods

Urine Testing
Traditional Testing

This 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.

Instant Testing

Instant drug testing is an exceptionally easy and reliable way to test employees and/or potential employees and get immediate results.

Saliva Testing (Arkansas office only, call for more details)

Saliva testing is a newer methodology and has a shorter window of detection than urine testing. It is most useful in post-accident and reasonable suspicion testing to determine recent drug use (1–2 days). 

Hair Testing

Hair testing provides an extended view of long-term drug use. Normally, this type of testing can detect substances in the last three months, but not recent use. Hair testing is excellent for pre-employment.

 
Buccal Swab/DNA/Paternity Testing

This method is a quick, non-invasive scraping of the cheek cells. Then, the specimen is sent to the lab for testing. The results are generally back in 3 days.
