While many companies have begun utilizing the hair follicle test for pre-employment, the 5 panel urine test continues to be the most commonly used test for pre-employment, random, post accident and reasonable suspicion test. 

Urine Drug Test Basics: There are multiple factors that may influence how long drugs remain present in the system given that everybody functions differently. Some of these factors include the amount of drugs that were consumed, metabolic rate, and the volume of fluids that have been excreted after the drug use.  Most illegal substances remain in the urine for up to a week, except for marijuana which can leave detectable traces for up to a month, particularly in the case of heavy users.  As with all our personal or employer testing options, Optimal Lab Test provides fast, accurate, affordable test results with outmost confidentiality. 

Benefits of Urine Drug Tests:

  • Urine drug tests are generally more affordable than hair drug screening

A hair follicle drug test, also known as a hair drug test, screens for illicit drug use and the misuse of prescription medication.   Many employers, courts and Substance Abuse Professional are requiring a hair follicle drug test instead of a standard urine test.  Many times, a hair follicle drug tests is preferred method by employers who have zero tolerance drug use policies, courts and individuals on probation due to the longer detection period for substance abuse.  The analyzed hair sample can detect signs of illicit drug use during the 90 days preceding the test.  As with all our personal or employer testing options, Optimal Lab Test provides fast, accurate, affordable test results with outmost confidentiality. 

Hair Drug Test Basics:

During this test, the collector will cut between 100 and 120 hairs from your head.  Generally, at least 1.5 inches of hair from the head is needed to perform this test.  The collector may take hair from different spots on your head to avoid creating an appearance of a bold spot.  If an individual has very little or no hair on their head, the collector might use body hair instead i.e. chest, leg or arm pit. 

The collection and testing of hair for this test follows a very specific set of standards to increase accuracy. During testing, the collected hair is washed and tested by the laboratory for environmental contamination that could change the results of the test. Your results won’t be affected if you wash your hair, dye your hair, or use styling products.

To guard against a false positive, laboratories conduct two tests. The first, called ELISA, is able to deliver a negative or positive result within 24 hours. The second, called GC/MS, is a widely accepted method for confirming a positive result.   The GC/MS also guards against false-positive results caused by foods like poppy seeds or hemp seeds.  Results are verified by a Medical Review Officer (licensed Physician) who will then release the results.   Typically, a hair follicle drug test results are available in approximately 3-4 business days from when the specimen reaches the laboratory for testing.  If a hair specimen requires further confirmation testing, this may delay the result reporting.

Benefits of Hair Drug Tests:

  • Hair follicle drug test is ideal for detecting long periods of illicit drug use (up to 90 days).  That’s because the chemicals from the drugs that end up in your bloodstream become part of the hair cells as your hair grows.
  • It’s important to note that urine drug test is optimal for detecting recent drug use within the last 3-5 days.   
  • Generally, it is more difficult to cheat on a hair follicle drug test 
  • Can easily test for multiple illegal substances via our 5 panel, 10 panel, 12, panel and with expanded opiate profile

Whether you want to detect current alcohol impairment, recent alcohol consumption, or alcohol usage within the past 3 days, Optimal Lab Test offer the testing services that fit your needs.  Optimal Lab Test offers a wide variety of alcohol tests using different types of specimens i.e. urine, hair, breath, and saliva methods.

  2. Saliva Alcohol Test: Detection 12-24 hours after consumption
  3. Urine Alcohol EtG Test: Detection up to 80 hours
  4. Hair EtG Alcohol Test: Detection up to 3 months:

Breath Alcohol Drug Test: Breath alcohol test is also known as a breathalyzer or BAT, measures how much alcohol is in the air you breathe out. The device uses that measurement to estimate how much alcohol is in your blood.  This is a test of choice to detect alcohol usage by employers and police officers to detect when an individual is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol.   Breath Alcohol Test only provides a current-moment snapshot of the body’s blood alcohol content, they should only be administered when someone is required to be sober at the current time.  Such cases would include driving a vehicle or operating heavy machinery.

Optimal Lab Test have certified staff members who administer DOT-approved Evidential Breath Testing devices (EBTs).  Procedures are meticulously controlled to ensure that all results are admissible in a court of law.  As a certified Breath Alcohol Technician (BAT) we conduct alcohol screening and confirmation tests (i.e., the second test given to an employee whose screening test result is .02 or above).  As with all our personal or employer testing options, we provide fast, accurate, affordable test results with outmost confidentiality. 

Saliva/Oral Fluid Alcohol Test: Optimal Lab Test also offers a saliva specimen alcohol test which is also known as Oral fluid alcohol test.  This test can detect if an individual consumed/ingested alcohol in the last 12 to 24 hours.  After 24 hours, alcohol is usually metabolized by the body and is no longer detectable in the saliva.  Saliva Alcohol Test is ideal choice for employers and parents to determine if there was recent alcohol use by an individual.  As with all our personal or employer testing options, we provide fast, accurate, affordable test results with outmost confidentiality. 

Urine Alcohol EtG Test: Urine alcohol test is used to check for presence of Etg in the urine.  Etg is the byproducts of the body’s metabolization of alcohol.  Etg is an indicator that ethanol was ingested and can be detected in urine for up to 80 hours after ingestion.  This is an easy and inexpensive way to determine if an individual has consumed alcohol recently.  This is a typically idea choice of test for personal uses, like parents wanting to determine if their child consumed alcohol, as well as legal ones, like probation alcohol testing.  As with all our personal or employer testing options, we provide fast, accurate, affordable test results with outmost confidentiality. 

Hair Alcohol EtG Test: A hair alcohol test is used check for the presence of Etg in the hair.  Etg is the byproducts of the body’s metabolization of alcohol.  A hair alcohol test can detect presence of EtG within the past seven to 90 days. Therefore, it’s an indicator of a historical alcohol use – not current impairment. Many court-ordered tests are now requiring individuals to obtain a hair EtG alcohol test to help determined patterned uses of alcohol consumption.

Similar to hair drug testing, nail drug test is ideal for detecting long periods of illicit drug use. Drugs are distributed via the blood supply to the nail cells and the nail bed. As the
nail grows in length and thickness, it creates layers of drug history. 

The drug detection period for nail clipping starts 3-4 weeks following ingestion and up to eight months after the last usage (with toenail clippings in many cases identifying over one year of drug use).

The specimen collector will clip approx.100 milligrams of nail from all 10 fingernails, each clipping must be at least 2 millimeters to 3 millimeters long. A 3 millimeter
specimen of fingernail represents up to eight months of collective history of drug exposure.

Nail testing is available as a 5 or 10 panel.   

5-drug panel:

Amphetamines, Methamphetamine/MDMA, Cannabinoids, Cocaine Opiates, Phencyclidine (PCP)

10-drug panel:
5-drugs plus Benzodiazepines and Barbiturates, Methadone, Propoxyphene

Optimal Lab Test also offers a saliva specimen alcohol test which is also known as Oral fluid alcohol test. This test can detect if an individual consumed/ingested alcohol in the last 12 to 24 hours. Saliva Alcohol Test is ideal choice for employers and parents to determine if there was recent alcohol use by an individual. The benefits of this testing
method is that not intrusive or invasive as in the case with blood sample and results are available immediately. The only major drawback for use of the test is that of the small
detection period as the alcohol is fully metabolized by the body after 24 hours of ingestion. As with all our personal or employer testing options, we provide fast, accurate, affordable test results with outmost confidentiality.
