ANSWERS

1. What is Drug Check and how does it work?
DrugCheck® is a self-contained urinalysis drug test that detects the presence of drug metabolites in urine within minutes. The cup contains detection strips each designed to test a particular drug at NIDA cut-off levels. It provides instant results using a technology similar to that found in home pregnancy tests. Through the patented delivery system, urine reacts with the reagents and antigens on the strip to produce a colormetric reading indicating either positive or negative test results. Go to the products page to see a drug check demonstration.

2. How does Drug CheckTM compare to the other cups and testing procedures?
The leading cups require significant manipulation or handling of the cup in order to activate the test. You must either tilt the cup or insert detection strips into the cup in order to initiate contact with the specimen. During testing, these cups are not sealed which puts the tester at greater risk of specimen exposure, accidents, tampering, and retesting. Should the specimen deliver a positive reading, further handling of the cups or split-samples are needed in order to prepare them for shipping to a confirmation lab. Other urine drug testing products, such as testing strips, require direct handling of urine via pipettes, can take up to 45 minutes for results and also require split-sampling. DrugCheck® , on the other hand, doesn't require any steps to activate the test. Simply void urine into the cup and wait for the results. The cup is also ready to be shipped should it be necessary to confirm a positive reading. It's a simpler, safer, and saner approach to drug testing. For a side by side comparison of DrugCheck® against the leading drug test cups, please see our comparison chart.

3. Is it as accurate as GC/MS?
Like other onsite test products, DrugCheck® is a qualitative test -- it only determines the presence of drugs at detection limits comparable to NIDA cutoff limits used for DOT testing. GC/MS drug tests, which costs more, quantifies the concentration of drugs in the sample. Given the purposes of most drug testing (pre-employment, post-accident, random) is to detect the presence of drug use and not determine the amounts ingested, DrugCheck® satisfies the needs of most drug screening.

4. Now that I have the test results what should I do?

5. How can my business benefit from DrugCheck 5?
DrugCheck® is ideal for businesses that conduct pre-employment, random, and/or post-accident drug testing. Because of its ability to deliver instant results, DrugCheck® allows your new employees to begin work immediately. (Compare that to waiting 24 - 72 hours for laboratory drug testing.) It also allows you to proceed both timely and knowledgeably during post-accident investigations. This is especially true for those companies conducting remote site testing. Not only does DrugCheck® allow you to be more productive, but it also saves you money. While the average test can cost upwards of $35.00, DrugCheck® is about half the cost. Those who conduct a lot of drug tests and order in greater quantities, realize even greater savings through generous volume discounts. Furthermore, businesses can receive premium discounts up to 15% on their worker's compensation coverage with the implementation of a drug-testing program.

6. How long do I have to wait before I read the drug screen results?
You should wait five minutes to allow the test to develop before reading the results. You should also read the test before 8-10 minutes have passed to ensure the most accurate results.

7. Are there any legal medications that can trigger positive results?
Yes. the most common problem is the pseudoephedrine in many over-the-counter sinus and cold medications, which can cause a positive result for methamphetamine. Some forms of the drugs we test for may be available legally under prescription as well.

8. A urine sample that tested positive with a DrugScreen, test came back as negative after I sent it to the lab?
Keep in mind that our tests are drug SCREENS, and to be used for preliminary testing only. Our tests are designed to reduce the number of samples you have to send in to the lab for confirmation. There are several reasons a lab might disagree with a preliminary test result: the lab may be testing for a different amount, or a very specific form of the drug being tested for. The urine sample sent to the lab might not be the same one that was pre-tested - check your own internal procedures.
