Drug and Alcohol Tests
Oral fluid drug test
This is a laboratory screen and confirmation test. It is ideal for the workplace. It has a shorter detection window than urine analysis. Also, other benefits include reduced sample collection time and less set-up facilities.
Urine lab screen and confirmation drug test
Urinalysis is still the most popular method of testing for drugs of abuse. This particular test is a full laboratory screen with confirmation. It has a longer detection window than oral fluid. As a result, it is ideal for a variety of purposes in the workplace and for private testing.
Hair drug test
This is the test of choice for proving abstinence in court for a variety of legal purposes. It provides a historical timeline for drug use. Also, is is used in the workplace for employees in high profile positions.
We provide the most popular workplace medicals, such as Safety Critical CBH and Rail PTS. We have Medical Centres located throughout the UK. Appointments are available for your staff for workplace medicals at all centres.
Urine instant point of care drug test
Popular in the workplace, the point of care screen has some advantages. This includes obtaining an instant result at sample collection. But, we always recommend laboratory confirmation for non-negative screens. As a result, the lab confirmation will enable you to take appropriate action. Point of care screening is an option for random testing in the workplace.
Hair alcohol test
Like the hair drug test, hair alcohol testing provides a timeline of alcohol use. As a result, this analysis is the choice of courts when providing evidence of abstinence.
Blood alcohol test
Blood alcohol testing can be undertaken in conjunction with the hair alcohol test. This provides a more detailed analysis of any chronic use. On occasion, a court may ask for this to depending on the nature of the allegation.
Breath alcohol test
This method of alcohol testing is available with drug testing in the workplace. It is best policy practice to perform breath alcohol analysis when performing a drug test. All breathalysers are Home Office approved for Network Rail testing.
