Search Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should my staff bring to the testing facility?

    Employees must bring a valid ID, such as a driver’s license, to the collecting facility at a minimum. If the employee does not bring an appropriate picture ID to the collecting place, his or her Designated Employer Representative (DER) can positively identify him or her over the phone. Employers may choose to supply the requisite Custody and Control Form (CCF) for their employee drug testing, even if it is not mandated.

  • I'm a sole operator with no additional drivers. Is it necessary for me to participate in a drug and alcohol testing program?

    Yes. The requirements not only mandate that you have a program but also stipulate that you must engage in a drug and alcohol testing consortium.

  • What is the minimum amount of hair required for a hair drug test?

    100 milligrams of hair is required for a hair drug test with first screening and confirmation (90 to 120 strands).

  • What period is covered by a hair drug test?

    Hair grows at different rates; on average, head hair grows half an inch every month. As a result, a 1.5-inch hair sample may detect drug usage up to 90 days ahead of time.

  • In comparison to urine and hair, what is the drug detection window for oral fluid?

    The dose, sensitivity of the testing method used, preparation and route of administration, duration of use (acute or chronic), the matrix that is analyzed, the molecule or metabolite that is looked for, the pH and concentration of the matrix (urine, oral fluid), and variations in metabolic and renal clearance are all factors that influence drug detection times. In general, hair has the longest detection time, followed by urine and oral fluid. Drugs can be detected in hair for up to 90 days, but drugs can be detected in urine for one to seven days (or longer in chronic users) and in oral fluid for five to 48 hours.

  • What occurs during a drug test at work?

    As part of the application process, a candidate is informed that pre-employment drug testing would be required. They may be required to report to the laboratory within a certain time frame, such as 24 hours, to reduce the risk of medications in their system being excreted and undetected. Applicants are directed to a specific laboratory to submit a drug test sample (usually for urine test results).

  • How long does it take for medicines to leave your system?

    Many factors can influence how long medication is detectable in the urine or other biological tests, including:
    The half-life of medication by the subject’s hydration and fluid balance, as well as the frequency with which the medication is administered and the cut-off concentration employed by the testing lab to detect the medication.

  • What is urine drug testing?

    Employers most commonly utilize urine as a sample type for drug testing. After the drug’s effects have worn off, a urinalysis will indicate the presence of the drug in the system; however, the amount of time varies per substance. Urine is the only sample type that has been approved for legally required, safety-sensitive workforce testing.

  • What is Blood Drug Testing?

    A blood drug test may be done to establish how much drug is in an employee’s system at any given time, generally between minutes and hours. It enables an employer or law enforcement officer to detect if a person is actively impaired by drugs or alcohol. Alcohol, amphetamines, cocaine, fentanyl, marijuana, methamphetamines, opiates, phencyclidine, nicotine, and tramadol are just a few of the substances that may be detected in the blood.

  • What should I bring with me to the drug test?

    Typically, you’ll need a drug test order form or a paper chain of custody document (CCF). You’ll also need your government-issued identification, such as a driver’s license. You’ll need hair on your head or your body if you’re going for a hair test.

  • How do I determine if my employee needs to take a DOT or non-DOT drug test?

    As defined by the DOT agency that oversees your firm, employees who operate in a DOT safety-sensitive role are considered DOT covered. You can use a method you can use to figure this out, and it will assist you in deciding which staff are DOT. You may also get help from US Drug Test Centers.

  • If I take medications, will I test positive for my company's drug test?

    The majority of the time, the answer is no. Each drug test is reviewed and verified by a medical review officer (MRO) at Mid-Atlantic Drug Testing Services. If the test results are positive, the MRO will call you, the donor who gave the samples, to discuss the positive result as well as any drugs you may be taking. The MRO will verify any medications you provided with your prescribing doctor or pharmacy, and then report your drug test result to your employer as a negative drug test result. The MRO serves as an objective and unbiased advocate for the drug testing process’s integrity and accuracy.

  • How long does it take for drugs to appear in a person's system after they have been consumed?

    Hair testing, oral fluid testing, or urine drug testing may be used in this case because there is no accurate science. It takes roughly a week to test hair. It just takes a few hours to test oral fluid for drugs. Urine tests might take anything from 4-5 to 8-12 hours. The precise time varies from one person to the next, depending on a variety of factors such as the medication, its strength, the person’s metabolism, weight, and maybe what he or she has eaten or drunk. The bottom truth is that if someone consumes illegal substances, they will eventually show up in their hair, mouth fluid, or urine.
