Are employment drug testing kits bio-hazardous?
No, employment drug test kits are not bio-hazardous. Urine is not considered bio-hazardous unless it contains blood.
Are there any cross-reactions?
It is possible in drug testing for false positive results to occur. A more specific method such as GC/MS(Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry) must be used in order to obtain a confirmed result. Consult your chosen lab for a list of substances that may possibly produce false positive screening results.
Are there products that can be used in the tests to give a false negative on a drug test? What can be done to avoid this?
Although there are only a small handful of products that can be used to change the result of an impending drug test, there are validity screens available which can detect these adulterants. Some are integrated into the tests, such as the iCup® AD, which has built-in adulteration available, and we also have individual adulteration strips. See Cheat Protection for more information.

All of our drug testing kits offer this option. This may be an important factor when it is necessary to maintain Chain of Custody (CoC).

To stand up in a court of law, instant drug tests need to be sent to a certified laboratory for Confirmation or Confirmation with Medical Review Officer Services. Other options include performing a new drug test using a certified third party onsite collection service or utilizing a certified offsite employee drug testing service.
Do you accept payment by credit card for your drug testing kits?

Do you have to confirm a non-negative result on a drug test? If so, how is this done?
Does the drug testing kit need to be disposed of in any special way, such as a biohazard bag?
Urine and oral drug screens do not pose a biohazard risk and can be disposed of in regular waste receptacles.

Our instant employee drug testing kits are near laboratory accurate. However, to hold up in a court of law you will need to get Confirmation, Confirmation with MRO purchase onsite collection, or offsite employee drug testing services.

Your time is valuable. Follow this simple, efficient system for fast, qualified answers to your employee drug testing and pre-employment drug and alcohol screening questions or concerns:
How long are the results valid after administering the drug test?
If I receive a positive drug test result with On-site Drug Testing, what should I do?
Confirmation Drug Testing Services or Confirmation with Medical Review Officer (MRO) Services is necessary to validate a positive test within a DOT certified program or to be legal in a court of law in Non-DOTemployee drug testing programs.
Is it possible that the employment drug test is positive in On-Site Drug Testing, but the laboratory test is negative?
Yes. There may be medical reasons why a employee drug test will show positive. The certified laboratory will then do a more detailed drug test to determine the specific substance and either confirm it or record is as a “false positive”.
Is it possible to cheat the iCup® AD drug test kit by substituting or adulterating the specimen?
No. The iCup® A.D. drug test kit contains a Specimen Validity Test (SVT strip that verifies the validity of a drug test specimen. The SVT strip checks for oxidants, specific gravity and pHin the specimen. For example, if someone tries to substitute water for urine, the specific gravity indicator will show an abnormal reading. See Cheat Protection for more information.

All drug testing kits can be stored at room temperature up to the date of expiration printed on the individual foil pouch. They cannot be stored in extreme heat or cold and must remain sealed in the foil pouch until use.
Is there specific training required to administer these drug tests?
There is no official training required to administer our employee drug tests. We provide procedure cards and drug test interpretation quizzes free of charge. These instructional materials help you to administer, interpret and if necessary, package a positive result for Confirmation testing. Please view the Library or the documents on the bottom of every product page for more information.

The drug or alcohol test does not require a restroom and the testing procedure can be administered right at your location. A urine drug test comes in a variety of formats, such as dips, pipettes, and cups. The iCup® AD, for example, has built-in adulteration tests available to check the validity of a urine sample.
