Urine Drug Screening

A critical component to a successful treatment plan in patient medication monitoring and compliance therapy is a comprehensive urine drug of abuse screening and confirmation solution.

A laboratory must conduct an initial test called a screening test, followed by a confirmatory test on the sample before the specimen can be reported as positive, or negative if deemed medically necessary.

The application of immunoassays as a preliminary test to screen for drugs of abuse allows samples to be tested for the presence of drug or drug metabolites in various sample types. Immunoassay tests are based on the antibody-antigen reaction, which provides a relatively fast and straightforward way of determining if drug metabolites are present in the sample.

If initial screening tests produce positive results, a confirmatory test on the sample is required. Learn more about Confirmatory testing
