Urine Toxicology Testing At Auspicious Labs
We here at Auspicious Labs provide tests for physicians, larger companies, and individuals. It is common for us to get requests for drug testing. The preferred method that we use is urine testing. This not only allows us to detect a drug but also allows us to quantify the drugs.
In specific, the technology that we use is Initial Presumptive Screening and Confirmation Definitive. Both work hand in hand when it comes to determining if someone has used drugs and what that drug might be.
For this test, the customer comes in and pees into a small cup. This sample is then taken to the lab and tested accordingly. If you are looking for a specific drug, this can be requested when talking to a technician.
Why can a test be asked for
Requests for urine tests, specifically drug urine tests, can be asked for several reasons. A job can request for it or even a doctor. This can be because they want to make sure you are not abusing a substance. If you are in a substance abuse program, this is required for monitoring purposes. The list goes on and on.
Different Tests Available
Depending on the drug being searched for, the testing is different. Tests are done to check if a drug was used and how much was used. The technician can explain which is being used for you if you would like.
There is a particular cut-off mark that is met in order to get positive or negative tests. Anything below the cut-off mark is a negative result, and anything above is a positive result.
