This objective method is both computerized and automated to ensure reliable results and industry-leading turnaround times. Background Resources, Inc. offers a full range of collection options, including:
Standard Urine Testing
One of the most common screening methods, urine testing is an accurate and reliable way to detect casual drug use that occurred within the last 72 hours. Testing is performed at all six SAMHSA-certified laboratories.
In addition to the Federally-mandated (SAMHSA/DOT) 5-drug panel, we offer a variety of test panels and cut off levels. Our standard urine specimen 5-drug panel test screens for the presence of the following drugs and drug classes.
- Amphetamines (Amphetamine and Methamphetamine)
- Cocaine Metabolite
- Marijuana Metabolites
- Opiates (Codeine and Morphine)
* These are standard cutoff levels — alternate cutoff levels may be available — the above test methodologies are subject to change when required by applicable government regulations or guidelines.
Adulteration Testing for Urine Tests.
Test Sure™ specimen validity testing ensures the integrity of your urine drug test by identifying adulterants that may be added to hide drug use. All “invalid results” are tested twice automatically to ensure accuracy. Specimens suspected of containing certain prescription and non-prescription drugs that may interfere with analysis during the initial enzyme immunoassay screen are automatically tested again using an alternate methodology. Oral Fluid Testing Oral fluid collection devices, where a swab is used to collect a saliva sample, allow for specimen collection at any time or any place, helping to simplify the collection process while preserving the donor’s dignity. Since the sample is collected under direct supervision, the chance for specimen adulteration is greatly reduced. Intercept®’ is one such product that can be used to accurately detect the 5 most common classes of drugs, including Ecstasy.
