National Drug Screening services are available at drug testing centers across the United States and open daily. These drug testing centers are called Collection Sites, which are facilities where specimens are collected. This could be the employer place of business. Typically this is a brick and mortar facility, it could be a TPA office, a medical facility, hospital, occupational health clinic, walk in clinic, doctor’s offices – any type of business that might have a set up and employ collectors to collect specimens. Major laboratories such as Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp operate brick and mortar facilities that employ collectors to collect specimens; these are commonly referred to as Patient Service Centers (PSC’s). Other laboratories have contracts with occupational health clinics, walk in clinics, doctor’s offices and other facilities that operate brick and mortar facilities to collect specimens.
Our drug testing clinics are associated with Quest Diagnostics, LabCorp, Alere Toxicology, E-Screen, Clinical Reference Labs, Drug Testing USA, Florida Drug Screening and many other laboratories providing drug testing for illegal or illicit drugs.
Once specimens are collected at the drug testing center, they are sent overnight delivery to Laboratories. After collection from the donor, a specimen is sealed with a tamper-evident seal and sent to a laboratory for analysis. The primary advantages of utilizing a laboratory for testing include compliance with regulations, accuracy, legal defensibility, and the ability to customize tests for a particular demographic group. A laboratory is a brick and mortar facility that does the testing, not the facility that collects the specimen. Folks get confused about this and say I’m going to the lab for my drug test, they actually mean they are going to the collection site for specimen collection. A very big investment is required to own and operate a laboratory. Laboratories currently involved with drug testing include Quest Diagnostics, LabCorp, MEDTOX, E-Screen, Drug Testing USA, Florida Drug Screening and Clinical Reference Laboratory (CRL) – there are many others also both regional and national players.
In addition to laboratory testing, National Drug Testing offers instant drug testing or point of collection testing which can provide for an immediate negative drug test result. Instant drug testing with same day drug testing results available at our LabCorp and Quest Patient Service Centers – over 4000 throughout the United States. Instant drug tests provide an indication of drug use within minutes but they are only equivalent to the immunoassay stage of laboratory testing; confirmatory laboratory testing is required for test results that are not negative.
Medical Review Services (MRO) are also available at National Drug Testing. The Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a person who is a licensed physician and who is responsible for receiving and reviewing laboratory results generated by an employer’s drug testing program and evaluating medical explanations for certain drug test results. The MRO receives the laboratory drug test results from the lab and reports the results to the employer.
