Why should you choose urine drug testing?Urine specimens have a longer detection window for most drugs and/or their drug metabolites,allowing usage to be detected for an additional 1-3 days. This is why urine has been the preferred biologic specimen since inception for determining the presence or absence of most drugs. A urine drug testing lab can help physicians determine if their patients are stayingcompliant with prescribed medications and treatment plans.

Why Establish a Medication Monitoring Program?
Urine Drug Testing Process(Click on each following heading to read the details)
Our Lab Technicians assign unique identification to each urine sample upon arrival. Samples are then double aliquoted into sterile tubes to undergo sterilization and validity testing.
To generate the most accurate interpretation of the existing compounds, urine samples are prepared for Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) screens and LC-MS/MS testing by going through a purification and extraction period.
Urine samples are screened for Amphetamine, Benzodiazepines, Illicit Drugs, Opiates, Oxycodone, and Synthetic Analgesics. This adds multiple sets of dependable data, further aiding in the toxicology testing process.
LC-MS/MS confirmation testing is applied to samples. The meticulous process is concluded by the analysis of data processed from the LC-MS/MS.
Lastly, results are reviewed for accuracy before being sent to the clinic. Clinics have the opportunity to review results and talk with DIAGNOSTIC SALES CONSULTANTS Support Specialists.This data helps clinicians create an office testing procedures and protocols with patient agreements,patient risk assessments, and inspection checklists.DIAGNOSTIC SALES CONSULTANTS offer comprehensive urine drug testing using Liquid Chromotography Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) technology on almost 100 drug compounds to help clinicians have a better read on their patients.
Depending on the individual and the setting, providing a urine specimen may be difficult and can add additional requirements for clinicians. Oral fluid testing provides quick and easy specimen collection and has been recognized as a reliable and innovative testing method. PCLS offers oral fluid drug testing as another option for patients.
