Frequently Asked Questions: Drug Tests
Q: Can one test be used for all the possible drugs of abuse?
No, it cannot. Each drug needs a specific test. We do offer multi-drug tests – up to 10 drugs can be tested at a time.
Q: Do you think I could test positive for marijuana (THC) from exposure to second-hand smoke?
No, you cannot as the urine concentration, if any, will be way below the cut-off level.
Q: How accurate are your drug-testing products?
Our products are reliable. Our tests are United States FDA-cleared (unless stated otherwise). Laboratory testing has revealed that they are over 95% accurate. However, it is always advisable to get results confirmed by a laboratory.
Q: How do your rapid drug tests work?
Rapid drug tests detect the presence of drug metabolites in saliva or urine in minutes. When a detection strip is wetted with a saliva or urine specimen, the specimen reacts with the reagents and antigens on the strip and produces a color reading so you can interpret a positive or negative result.
Q: If I receive a positive drug test result, what should I do?
Confirm that it is indeed positive through a laboratory test.
Q: If a drug test shows positive, can it be proved how long ago the drug was taken?
Saliva, urine and blood only show up a positive or negative result, not how long ago a drug has been taken.
Q: Is drug testing at home really that simple?
Yes, it is. All it takes is a few minutes with our rapid drug testing products.
Q: What are the cut-off levels for drugs in your tests?
Our FDA-approved tests have the following SAMHSA industry-standard cutoff levels:
|Tricyclic Antidepressants||TCA||30 ng/ml|
Q: What are the drug detection times in the body?
Drug detection times, or the amount of time the drug remains in the body, could vary from drug to drug.
|DRUG CATEGORY||DRUG DETECTION TIMES (DAYS)|
|Amphetamines (AMP)||2-6 Days|
|Barbituates (BAR)||3-8 Days|
|Benzodiazepines (BZO)||2-14 Days|
|Cocaine (COC)||2-5 Days|
|Marijuana (THC)||14-30 Days|
|Metamphetamines (mAMP)||2-6 Days|
|Methadone (MTD)||2-8 Days|
|Opiates (OPI & MOP)||2- 5 Days|
|Oxycodone (OXY)||2-5 Days|
|Phencyclidine (PCP)||3-8 Days|
|Tricyclics (TCA)||10 Days|
|Propoxyphene (PPX)||2-3 Days|
|Buprenorphine (Suboxone) (BUP)||48 To 72 Hours|
|Ecstacy (MDMA)||5 To 7 Days|
Q: What do you mean by a rapid drug test?
A rapid drug test is a diagnostic test that very quickly gives you the results that show whether or not you have the presence of a specific drug in your body.
Q: What is the difference between a Dip Card Test and an Integrated Cup Test?
The Dip Card is dipped into a urine specimen to obtain results. A cup is a convenient method of testing where the specimen is collected in the cup and tested there as well. There is no handling of the specimen.
Q: Which drugs can be found with your tests?
Our tests can be used to determine the presence of the following drugs of abuse:
- Amphetamines (AMP)
- Barbiturates (BAR)
- Benzodiazepines (BZO)
- Cocaine (COC)
- Ecstacy (MDMA)
- Marijuana (THC)
- Methamphetamines (mAMP)
- Methadone (MTD)
- Morphine (MOP)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
- Propoxyphene (PPX)
- Opiates (OPI)
- Oxycodone (OXY)
- Trycyclic Antidepressants (TCA)
Q: Why should I use a rapid drug test?
You can use a rapid drug test to ensure privacy. This is very useful in a variety of situations – at home, school, place of work, pre-employment, after accidents, random testing for drugs, etc.
Q: Will substances that I use regularly like vitamins, penicillin, aspirin and caffeine affect the results in any way?
No, because our rapid drug tests react to drugs and drug metabolites, not to these substances which have a different chemical structure.
