Drug, Alcohol and Toxins Testing

Drug, Toxins, Alcohol, Substance Testing

ANY TIME LAB owns and maintains drug testing collection sites in Florida and other States.

ANY TIME LAB offers a full line of drug testing options and services including hair, urine, saliva, blood, and fingernail analysis.

In addition, ANY TIME LAB employs certified Breath Alcohol Technicians (BAT) and consultants experienced in policy development and implementation.
Urine Drug Testing
Urine is the most common drug testing substance. Water soluble drugs (metabolites) can be detected up to 48 hours. Fat soluble drugs (metabolites) can be detected up to several weeks.

Unilab Express offers in house Urine drug screening. We do provide GC/MS confirmations on presumptive positives.
Hair Drug Testing
Hair testing is the most accurate and effective method of finding users of drugs of abuse. Using a small sample of hair cut at the scalp, hair drug analysis evaluates the amount of drug metabolites embedded inside the hair shaft.

Hair testing for drugs of abuse provides up to a 104 days drug use history.

Drug detection period for body hairs can be much longer. Unilab Express offers hair drug testing using hair from scalp as well as body hair.

The initial drug screening test is performed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) microplate technology. ELISA is one of the current screening methods with the sensitivity to detect drugs in hair specimens. After ELISA testing gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) or GC/MS/MS confirmation for presumptive positive screens. Results for specimens that screen negative for all drugs are generally available within 24 hours after specimens are received at the testing laboratory. Results for confirmation testing of presumptive positive screens are usually available within an additional 72 hours.

We have not found any adulterants that can beat the hair drug test at this time. Moreover, the risk is minimized because every hair drug test specimen collection is directly and easily observed. Bleaches, shampoos and external contaminants (i.e. marijuana smoke) have no known impact on test results. Our testing method measures the drug molecules embedded inside the hair shaft, eliminating external contamination as a source of a positive drug test result. Hair drug testing results cannot be altered with shampoos or other external chemicals.
Saliva Drug Testing
Saliva drug testing is very difficult to adulterate.
Saliva drug test best perform for water soluble drugs.

Saliva Drug Testing is generally used to check if the person is under the influence at that very moment or was abusing substance within past several hours.

The disadvantages mostly relate to the short drug detection time limitation of saliva drug tests. Most drugs do not linger in saliva and disappear quickly. Because of this saliva testing is being considered for drug detection in situations where recent drug use must be detected including vehicle and equipment drivers, those involved in workplace or other accidents and not as a use to detect past drug use.
MRO
MRO qualifications require that the MRO is licensed as a medical doctor (MD) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO) in any one state. The MRO must have knowledge of substance abuse disorders, plus clinical experience. The MRO must pass a certification test by a nationally recognized MRO certification board (e.g., ASAM, MROCC, AAMRO and complete a mandated training curriculum. MROs do not work for the laboratory nor do they have a financial relationship with the laboratory. UNILAB EXPRESS maintains this independent relationship with the MRO.
What is a Drug Metabolite?
A metabolite is the chemical that the body produces after ingesting a drug. A metabolite is a byproduct of your body breaking down drugs, this is what we are actually testing for when we do a drug test.

In some circumstances the parent drug test is ordered. Please call us for details.
Drug Test Cut-Off Levels
Drug testing cutoff levels are the minimum concentrations of drugs or metabolites that must be present in specimens, before labs will report the drug testing results as positive.

If there is a zero-tolerance policy involved the drug testing can be ordered as LOD (Level Of Detection) Test. Limit of Detection means reporting any detectable amount of drug
