Quest Diagnostics

National Drug Screening works closely with Quest Diagnostics to provide a comprehensive range of instant and onsite drug tests, lab testing (urine, oral fluid and hair) and other programs and services. There are many reasons for drug testing, such as post-accident, return to duty, reasonable suspicion, random and pre-employment. Drug screening programs are proven to be highly beneficial to businesses and also promote better health among employees and their families, decreasing the use of medical benefits. They help improve productivity by decreasing accidents, downtime, absenteeism, theft and turnover. The cost of a simple drug test is minimal when compared to the risks that hiring a drug user can present to your workplace. In fact, businesses with drug-free workplace programs can qualify for worker’s compensation insurance premium discounts, and other government incentives through your state.

Drug testing at Quest is lab based and testing detects the metabolites of drugs that are ingested.  Specimens tested included urine, oral fluid and hair.   Specimen validity testing is performed at Quest, testing for adulterants is important to catch the cheaters. Both non-regulated and federally mandated testing is performed at Quest Diagnostics laboratories.

Pre-employment Drug Testing

Pre-employment drug testing allows you to make informed decisions about potential employees. Abusing drugs can compromise the stability and integrity of your workplace, so pre-employment drug screening is essential in preventing the hiring of people who use drugs. Random drug testing ensures that your current employees remain drug-free. Random drug testing allows an employer to use a random selection process to select one or more employees in the workplace to submit to a drug test. There is also reasonable suspicion drug testing, which can be one of the most challenging aspects of a drug-free workplace program. Some of the indications that may warrant a reasonable suspicion drug test include, but are not limited to: smell of alcohol on the breath or odor on the body, confusion or disorientation, unsteady walking or standing, unusual or erratic behavior, and slurred speech. Including reasonable suspicion drug testing in your drug-free program will help maintain a drug-free workplace by dissuading and detecting the use of drugs and alcohol. A trained supervisor should make the reasonable suspicion determinations that lead to a drug and alcohol test.

National Drug Screening partners with Quest Diagnostics to offer the highest quality drug testing services in the United States with lab testing of urine, oral fluid and hair. Instant or rapid drug testing commonly known as point of collection testing (POCT) is also available at Quest Diagnostics collection facilities throughout the United States. These Quest collection sites are known as patient service centers or PSC’s.

Quest Diagnostics Update - ECCF For DOT

In August of 2016, Quest Diagnostics Reported …

We are busy making final preparations for the use of the Federal electronic Custody and Control Form, or eCCF, for regulated drug testing programs. An eCCF is an electronic version of the traditional, five-part, paper Custody and Control Form (CCF) – the document used for drug test ordering, specimen collection processing and chain of custody documentation for workplace drug testing. The implementation of Federal eCCF is a landmark event as paper requisitions will no longer be the only choice for regulated drug testing programs.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) published a Final Rule on April 13, 2015 allowing employers, collectors, laboratories and Medical Review Officers (MROs) to use eCCFs for regulated drug testing programs. Since that time, we have been readying our laboratories, drug testing collection sites and systems to provide the most consistent, high-quality eCCF experience possible.

Paperless drug testing using eCCF will improve overall efficiency and save both time and money by eliminating ordering, shipping expenses and storage of paper forms. Other key benefits include clear, readable eCCF images, reduced collection site fatal flaws and the streamlined delivery and tracking of eCCF copies to employers and MROs.

Quest Diagnostics Lab

Our Quest Diagnostics laboratories, collection sites and interfaces anticipate approval early this year. In addition to finalizing our preparations, we want to make sure that you are considering all of the components that are important for your organization to have in place before you begin using eCCF. Some of these considerations include:

Our new, informational video will help to familiarize you with new terminology, show you the new Quest Diagnostics eCCF form, explain how eCCF can significantly improve the drug testing process and help you plan to implement eCCF. Remember that timing is critical. Employers and their service agents can only begin using Federal eCCF after their laboratory has been approved by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP).

With that said, we will continue to share the latest updates on Federal eCCF so that you and your organization can prepare to make your transition once our four laboratories are approved.

Update, November 2020 – Quest Diagnostics has moved forward successfully with the electronic custody and control forms – eCCF. Most drug tests in the United States are now processed with electronic ordering electronic specimen collection processing.
