CBS Labs’ illegal drug tests are to determine if an individual has been exposed to certain controlled substances. This tests are used for medical, employment, and legal purposes. Although in some cases a general screening may provide limited information about how much or how often a patient has taken a drug, once its presence has been identified by screening, a more specific test can be performed that will identify with precision how much of a substance is present in the patient’s system.
Many types of drugs can be detected through toxicology screens. Depending on the drug, its presence may show in the blood or urine for a period that can range between hours and weeks after exposure. CBS labs performs tests with the highest sensitivity available in the industry. Furthermore, to ensure the accuracy of our tests, CBS Labs performs Specimen Validity Testing. This test measures the pH, creatinine, and specific gravity of the Urine Sample, along with any additives or adulterants, such as household chemicals, nitrites, chromates and agents that could be contained within the sample, and could deliberately or accidentally alter the testing results.
CBS Labs’ toxicology testing staff is available for consultation and can provide any additional information necessary to ensure the best outcomes for your patient.
