Why should you choose urine drug testing?Urine drug testing has been the preferred biologic specimen or gold standard for determining the presence or absence of most drugs since its inception. This is, in part, due to the increased window of detection of 1 to 3 days for most drugs and/or their drug metabolites. Since urine specimens have a longer detection window this means that a patient’s usage can be detected for a longer duration of time. Drug Metabolites are more frequently found in urine specimens; therefore, a urine drug testing lab can assist physicians in readily determining if their patients are staying compliant with prescribed medications and treatment plans.
- Corroborate and document the patient’s self-report of adherence
- Assist with diagnosis and therapeutic decision making
- Identify denial and minimization of drug and alcohol use
- Enhance motivation for treatment
- Measure biological adaption
- Assist in development of treatment planning
Urine Drug Testing Process(Click on each following heading to read the details)
Upon receiving specimens, our team of Lab Technicians assign unique identification to each urine sample. Samples are then double aliquoted into sterile tubes as they undergo sterilization and validity testing.
Urine samples are prepared for Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) screens and LC-MS/MS testing by going through a purification and extraction period. This allows for the most accurate interpretation of the existing compounds.
Urine samples are screened for Amphetamine, Benzodiazepines, Illicit Drugs, Opiates, Oxycodone, and Synthetic Analgesics. This further aids in the resulting toxicology testing process by adding multiple sets of reliable data.
LC-MS/MS confirmation testing is applied to samples. The rigorous process is concluded by the analysis of data processed from the LC-MS/MS.
The results are then reviewed for accuracy before they are sent to the clinic. Clinics can review results and talk with DIAGNOSTIC SALES CONSULTANTS Support Specialists. This information can assist clinicians with creating an office testing protocol with patient agreements, patient risk assessments, and inspection checklists. DIAGNOSTIC SALES CONSULTANTS offers comprehensive urine drug testing using Liquid Chromotography Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) technology on almost 100 drug compounds to help clinicians better understand their patients.
Providing a urine specimen may be challenging for some patients in some settings and can add additional requirements for clinicians. Oral fluid testing has been recognized as a reliable and innovative testing method that provides fast and convenient specimen collection. PCLS offers oral fluid drug testing as optional patient testing.

Surgical Infection Preventive Program
Why Implement a Surgical Infection Preventive Program?
…Outcomes are improved without any incidence of a Surgical Site Infection (SSI)
…..The average 30-day post-op cost of caring for patients who suffered SSIs was $52,620, compared to $31,580 for patients who came out of surgery free of infection — a more than $20,000 difference. Treating deep surgical infections cost nearly $30,000 more.
….. Estimated total cost of SSIs in the US ranges from $3 billion – $10 billion annually
….Proactive care promotes accelerated wound healing and improved scar appearance
Our multi-faceted program is clinically proven to significantly reduce the incidence of post-surgical infections.
FDA approved as a pre-operative wash
All surgical patients are identified through our proprietary data extraction and identification software. At-home shipments are timed precisely according to patient surgery schedule.
Our partner liaisons will communicate directly with a clinical staff member (usually the surgery scheduler) to ensure a seamless risk management planwithout hassle and free from errors.
Diagnostic Sales Consultants offers a 100% patient enrollment guarantee. No patient will be left behind, leveling out consistent care across the board.
A dedicated team of patient care specialists will consult, educate and monitor each and every patient, before and after surgery.
Minimal out-of-pocket expense for patients. Discounts and financial assistance available.
Reports will be provided to all providers regarding patient compliance.
Additionally, our infection protocol has also been clinically proven as effective in enhancing the epidermal cell renewal process (scar reduction) in the recovery process.
