Point of Collection Drug Screening
Immediate Drug Screening
Why Is It Beneficial?
Rapid Drug Testing is great for employers because it expedites the hiring process. If you’re a DOT employer and you need a driver to move product, you won’t have to wait to get them on the road with this method. The technology is available to us to get results within seconds, if they are in fact negative, which about 94% of drug tests are.
What Happens If It Is Positive?
This is where the instant part goes away. As is the case with all positive results, we have to submit the specimen for confirmatory testing before we can give the results back to an employer. The specimen will be shipped to a Medical Review Officer for confirmation and if the result holds, that information will be relayed to the employer.
The NexScreen Product
Here at National Drug Screening, we use the NexScreen testing product to provide us with instant and reliable results. A person will produce a urine sample in the NexScreen product and it will automatically reveal if that specimen is negative. Boom- just like that. But if the specimen is positive, it will be entered into the Electronic Chain of Custody and shipped off to an MRO for review.
