Testing & Screening FAQ
Do I need an appointment to come in for my drug test?
Appointments are not required for drug testing - we accept walk-ins.We do ask that donors having Federal/DOT tests report for screening no later than 2:00pm.
For Non-Federal/Non-DOT tests, donors should report in enough time to complete the check-in process and drug screen before our offices close at 5:00pm.
Once in your office, how long will I be there?
The collection process typically begins within minutes upon arrival at our sites. In the event that you have a shy bladder or cannot produce a sufficient specimen, you must be prepared to remain at the collection site until you can give a valid specimen - up to three hours.
What do I need to bring when I report for my drug test?
All donors must present a Photo ID. If your company has given you a Custody and Control Form (Chain of Custody form)or an Authorization/Protocol sheet, please bring that as well.
I take medication that may affect my drug test results. Do I need to bring in my prescriptions?
The Collector/Collection Site is not authorized to take medical information. Most Employers have a Medical Review Officer (MRO) who is a licensed physician that reviews their drug test results. In the event that your test result is positive for any substance and your Employer uses an MRO, the MRO will call you directly to discuss your prescription and/or over-the-counter medication(s).
When/How will I know my drug test results?
You may not hear anything regarding your drug test result. If your test is positive and your Employer utilizes the services of a Medical Review Officer (MRO), the MRO will contact you to discuss the results of your test.
Are children allowed in the testing facility?
Due to our safety policy, minors are NOT permitted unless they are an actual screening participant.
What is the cost of a DNA test?
There are many factors that effect the total cost of a DNA test including whether or not the test needs to be legally admissible, number of persons being tested, the collection location(s) of the donor(s), the type of specimen being submitted, etc. Because each case is unique, please contact our office to discuss your individual needs. Pricing will vary based on these factors.
