Laboratory Based Drug Screening

Urine Drug Screening

Occuscreen offers a wide variety of drug testing panels through our laboratory-based screening program. Panels range from the regulated DOT screen to a 12+ panel healthcare screen. Occuscreen has the ability to customize panels and cutoff levels to satisfy your drug testing requirements, including (but not limited to) the addition of ecstasy, synthetic opiates (oxycodone, hydrocodone, etc.) and alcohol.

Standard Panel:

Occuscreen’s most commonly used panel is an 8 Panel Drug Screen, which includes the following substances.

  • Amphetamines
  • Cocaine Metabolites
  • Marijuana Metabolites
  • Opiates*
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Propoxyphene
    *In order to capture the synthetic opiates (hydrocodone, oxycodone, etc.) an expanded opiates panel must be added to the drug screen.

Detection Window:

  • Typically from hours after use to 1-3 days*
    *With the exception of Phenobarbital (1-3 weeks), Benzodiazepines (1-14 days) and Marijuana (chronic use: up to 30 days)

Average Turnaround Time:

  • Negative results average within 24 hours
  • Positive results are confirmed within an additional 24-72 hours*
    *It is recommended that all positive results are sent through the Medical Review Process (MRO).

Oral Fluids Drug Screening

quantisal oral fluid test

Oral fluids specimen collection provides a unique solution for workplace drug testing. Oral fluids testing offers the benefit of having a non-invasive collection process which can be administered onsite, witnessed by a manager and confirmed at an approved laboratory. The collection of oral fluids reduces the opportunity for substituted specimens and tampering, which can include taking adulteration products, switching samples, or the over-consumption of liquids to cause dilute specimens. Results show drug substances currently in the system, which is similar to a blood test.

Detection Window:
