Instant or POCT Drug Testing – NexScreen

For Non-DOT drug testing, instant or point of collection testing (POCT) is often utilized by employers for applicant or employee screening for drugs.  The urine specimen collection can be done in house by the employer representative or at a drug collection facility including at a LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Center (PSC).

National Drug Screening works with LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Center (PSC) facilities for instant drug testing.  Negative results become available the same day.  If the device does not produce a negative result, it is non-negative requiring further testing at a laboratory. This is called confirmation testing and the specimen is sent into the lab for the confirmation test and then the result goes on to a Medical Review Officer (MRO) for review and reporting.

National Drug Screening also works with NexScreen products for employers and clinics that want to utilize the instant drug screening devices in house.  NexScreen offers a reliable rapid urine drug test cup that is accurate, easy to use, rugged, and flexible.  Panel configurations that are most popular include:

NexScreen 6 Panel Drug Screen Cup (60610N) – this is similar to a standard 5 panel test to include the detection of marijuana (THC), cocaine, PCP, opiates (codeine, morphine, heroin), amphetamines and methamphetamine.   

NexScreen 10 Panel Drug Screen Cup (61012N) – this is similar to a standard 10 panel lab test and includes detection of marijuana (THC), cocaine, opiates (codeine, morphine, heroin), oxycodone, amphetamines, methamphetamine, MDMA (Extasy) barbiturates, benzodiazepines and methadone. 

NexScreen 12 Panel Drug Screen (TDOA-6124) – this is an expanded panel and detects marijuana (THC), PCP< cocaine, opiates (codeine, morphine, heroin), oxycodone, amphetamines, methamphetamine, MDMA (Extasy) barbiturates, benzodiazepines, buprenorphine and methadone. 

Other custom panel configurations are available upon request. 

The features of the NexScreen instant drug screening products include:

  • CLIA Waived Product
  • Easy to Use
  • Negative Results in 5 minutes
  • 24-month shelf life

As previously mentioned for non-negative results a lab account is required for confirmation test at a lab and MRO review of the results.  National Drug Screening can set up your lab confirmation testing account based on the panel configuration you are using for the instant screening test cup.

There are a handful of States that prohibit or restrict the use of instant or POCT drug testing.  It is important to be aware of the States drug testing laws where the employer has operations with employees.

Customers purchasing NexScreen instant drug testing products will be provided training on how to use the devices.
