On-Site Collection Services
Performing collections at your place of business or job site offers many benefits including improved productivity, simplified logistics, reduced travel expenses and the convenience of not having to coordinate the collection process. Through our 24/7 mobile, on-site collection services, we make it easier for you and your employees to provide urine, hair, oral fluid, or breath alcohol samples for testing.
Quality Control Standards
No matter where we collect the specimen, whether at a collection site or on-site at your place of business, the same standardized processes are used from collection to results reporting. Strict chain of custody procedures are also used every step of the way to help ensure the integrity of your specimens and the drug test results.
International Testing and Collections
Strategic alliances with collection sites across the globe help provide our customers with international collection locations and a broad range of specimen collection options to meet a variety of drug testing needs. Our ever-expanding international footprint currently provides collection services in more than 50 countries. Once collected, specimens can be transported to the U.S. or to India for lab-based testing and results are reported using the same method you use today.
Fast, Reliable Results
Our dependable turnaround times drive timely hiring decisions. Testing is performed as soon as the specimen arrives at our laboratory. Negative results are often released within 24 hours. Non-negative screens undergo confirmatory testing and are typically released within an additional 24 to 72 hours.
