Drug Test (9 Panel Urine Test)
The 9 Panel Drug Test offered by Health Testing Centers is the industry standard urine screening test for the detection of:
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, found in marijuana)
- Methamphetamines (including ecstasy)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
Health Testing Centers drug tests are available to both employers and individuals.
Most drugs stay in your system for between two and five days, though some may be detected for up to seven days for a single dose. Chronic drug users may have traces of drugs like THC and PCP in their urine for four to six weeks.
For individuals Health Testing Centers convenient drug tests allow you to be confident that there are no drugs in your system or your teenagers. If you have any lingering concerns, self-testing provides you with the knowledge to appropriately prepare yourself. It also allows you to ensure that you are not surprised by any results, false positive or otherwise.
When the lab receives the urine sample, a technician splits the urine into two portions, called aliquots. The technician performs an analysis by immunoassay on the first aliquot. If the sample is positive, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry is used to confirm the findings. If the drug test is employment-related, the results will be sent to a medical review office, where a medical physician will further confirm the findings. Sometimes the test result will be non-negative, which means that a concentration of a metabolite or parent drug was detected. In this case, more information will be required to determine if the donor has a legitimate reason, such as a prescription or other medical treatment.
