Premier Screenings offers a variety of alternatives to instant drug screening, including a hair drug test, blood drug test or customized bundles like our urine drug test + alcohol urine lab test. These tests are common for judicial matters like probation or for requirements from an employer. Laboratory drug testing takes anywhere from 3-5 business days once collected at our location and results are provided through our secure client portal. Premier also offers solutions for requirements such as observed collections, split collections or just laboratory drug test confirmations for an instant drug screening. Contact us today for more information.
Drug Test Confirmation
All instant drug screenings can be confirmed through further laboratory testing, such as gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS), what we call a “lab confirmation.” It is highly recommended that a drug test confirmation is administered upon any POSITIVE or False Positive results detected from an instant drug screening.
The specimen will be sent to our laboratory by the end of the same business day and results are available within 3-5 business days. Any positive results will be reviewed by our Medical Review Officer.
5-Panel Urine Drug Test
One of Premier’s most common drug test is a SAMHSA 5-panel drug test. The 5-panel drug test screens for cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, opiates and PCP. Whether observed or not, this serves as a popular option for judicial matters like probation, DUI and others. This drug test is affordable and can be administered in our certified collection site or mobile at the location of your choice. Results are available within 3-5 business days.
10-Panel Urine Drug Test + Urine Alcohol Test Bundle
Premier offers a popular bundle including a urine drug test and urine alcohol test. Whether observed or not, this serves as a popular option for judicial matters like probation, DUI and others. This drug + alcohol bundle is affordable and can be administered in our certified collection site or mobile at the location of your choice. Results are available within 3-5 business days.
Hair Drug Test
Premier offers a 5-panel Hair Drug Test that detects Cocaine, Opiates, Phencyclidine, Amphetamines and Marijuana. When compared to other forms of testing, a hair drug test will detect a much longer period of drug use. Because hair grows, on average, 1/2 inch per month, a standard hair test covers between 30 and 90 days.
If the donor does not have hair on his/her head, hair can be collected from the nape of the neck or under the arms. The industry standard is to test 1.5 inches of head hair for approximately 90 days of history.
A hair drug test is is generally more expensive than a urine drug test, so it’ not the most cost-effective choice for pre-employment purposes, but it is a good option to follow-up on a tampered specimens, negative dilute, or for judicial matters.
- Results in 3-5 business days
- Detects Cocaine, Opiates, Phencyclidine, Amphetamines and Marijuana
- Detection period of approximately 90 days
Blood Drug Test: 9-Panel
Since drugs are rapidly metabolized and eliminated from the body, blood analysis offers a very brief detection window. Drugs in blood are typically detectable within minutes to hours, depending on the drug and the dose, versus one to several days in urine.
