Rapid results
With results available only minutes after the collection, instant drug testing eliminates the logistics, testing, and reporting delays that may sometimess be associated with laboratory-based drug testing.

Flexible collections
Our easy-to-use, rapid testing products can be used for on-site collections, at the place of employment, or at one of thousands of collection sites across the country. This flexibility provides options that can suit most testing situations.

Laboratory support
Instant tests that screen non-negative for illicit drugs should be confirmed in a laboratory. Within our network of three SAMHSA-certified drug-testing laboratories, we will retest the rapid test specimen to determine if drugs are present.  This additional layer of support and assurance can help to improve the quality and reliability of any testing program.
