The results are always accurate. The labs we use are AABB certified. This means they meet strict requirements on how samples are handled ensuring no mistakes are made.
Home DNA testing takes 4 business days.
DNA tests are 99% accurate. Since our DNA tests are primarily for judicial or court-ordered tests, it is important that tests are accurate and controlled.
Informational tests can be cheated. Since we do not require that ID is presented and we do not take pictures of the donors. A person can be presented to us as anyone. This is why legally admissible testing is important. A chain of custody is created. Meaning we document the donors by copying ID and taking pictures. These documents follow the samples through the testing process ensuring the results are from the people that were collected.
Everyone has different DNA. Only identical twins share the same DNA.
There is a small chance (less than 1%) that DNA tests can be wrong. That is one in a thousand. Any tests that involve humans runs a minute chance of something going wrong, such as DNA inclusions, exclusions or other human error.
You must complete the Substance Abuse Program.
THC, an expanded Opiate panel, Cocaine, Amphetamine, Phencyclidine (PCP). There are 10 total substances tested for.
Urine. But the DOT is working on rules for Oral testing as well.
As long as you are in a safety sensitive position.
As of Jan 6, 2020 all positive drug and alcohol and refusal to tests will be reported to the FMCSA Clearinghouse. The other authorities still require you complete the SAP process. These do not show up on public records or background checks.
Yes. All DOT drivers must complete a pre-employment and be subject to random, post accident and reasonable suspicion tests.
The DOT does not require a drug test to get a CDL license.
Only in certain instances will you be observed for a DOT drug test. Those include any temperature out of range samples. Those will require a second sample be provided under direct observation. Also all follow up and return to duty tests will be observed. An observer’s gender must match the gender on the CDL.
We can test for almost any drug. Just let us know which drugs you want to test and we can create a panel or choose an existing panel.
There are no drugs that will cause a false positive.
A positive drug test means the sample has tested positive for the metabolite that the body changes the drug being tested into. We do not actually test for the specific drug. We test for the metabolite. This is indicative of ingestion rather than exposure. Also the sample must meet a threshold (cutoff) for testing to be positive.
Drug tests are used for many reasons. Some people do it for personal reasons. We do legal testing as part of divorce cases and to get records expunged. Of course there is workplace testing. Many people wish to do a personal drug test before they do a workplace test. Any personal test we do for clients is always confidential.
The window of detection in saliva is 1-3 days.
Most drugs have a detection window of 2-5 days in urine. The exception being marijuana that can be tested as long 30 – 45 days depending on usage
Test results are very accurate. At the lab, the sample is put through a screen test first. If that is positive a more complex confirmation test is then performed.
