Workplace drug test sample collection
AlphaBiolabs has a dedicated sample collection team available around the clock. Chain of custody procedures are followed to ensure that confidentiality remains throughout the whole testing process.
Chain of custody also means that our workplace drug testing results are legally defensible. This is particularly imperative if the person being tested is likely to take legal action to contest the results of the drug test.
We can also train a representative of your own staff to perform workplace drug testing and sample collection to the highest standards. Competency training is also available for members of your staff already trained in sample collection.
Workplace drug testing methods
Oral fluid drug testing
It is possible to determine whether someone is misusing drugs by taking a sample of their saliva and analysing it for particular substances. An immediate negative result may mean that no further action needs to be taken; a non-negative result will then undergo confirmation testing at our in-house laboratory to determine exactly what drug was taken and in what quantities.
Oral fluid drug testing is known as a ‘narrow window’ form of testing as its period of detection is up to 48 hours (although this can depend on the particular substance taken).
Urine drug testing
This workplace drug testing method is used to determine whether someone is misusing drugs by taking a sample of their urine and analysing it for particular substances. An immediate negative result may mean that no further action is necessary; a non-negative result may require confirmation testing from our laboratory to determine exactly what substance was taken and in what quantities.
Urine drug testing is known as a ‘narrow window’ form of testing as its period of detection is approximately 4 days (although this can depend on the particular substance taken).
Hair drug testing
Hair drug testing is an innovative way to determine historically over a period of up to 12 months whether illicit drugs have been abused over the specified timeframe.
An average person’s head hair grows at a rate of approximately 1 cm per month. Following consumption of a drug and its passage into the bloodstream, a proportion of the drug’s metabolites will enter the hair follicle.
The head hair sample is collected and cut according to the specific requirements. To gain a clearer picture of how long a drug has been used, we recommend that the hair is segmented, and each segment analysed separately for the presence of drugs. This allows us to analyse the hair sample on a month-by-month basis to indicate over which months the sample donor was taking the drug, rather than providing a general overview of the entire period.
I am very impressed with the speed of service which gets my staff back on site without paid time off.Alisha M.
Introducing a Random Drug and Alcohol Test Policy at our business, we thought, would be fraught with difficulties. However, the professional assistance and advice we received made the task very simple. Once introduced our next concern was staff reaction to the actual test day. This went without a hitch and most staff did not know it had even occurred. The staff that were called for samples commented on how simple the process was and how nice the tester was.Dawn Sims
