We offer an expansive test menu with an industry leading turnaround time of 24-72 hours to serve the varied needs of health care providers, hospitals, addiction centers, and rehabilitation facilities including methadone and suboxone clinics.
We provide urine testing services for medication monitoring and management, treatment plan compliance, drug and alcohol testing, and pain management and rehabilitation. We also provide oral fluid testing, as well as urine testing for synthetic or altered urine.
When it’s critical to understand how a patient’s medications might be interacting with one another or other non-prescribed substances, you need fast, reliable, and accurate insights. We offer a range of tests to suit your needs whether you’re determining whether to prescribe a new medication or monitoring patient compliance.
For medication management and monitoring, our lab tests for the parent drug and metabolite of prescribed medications. Commonly prescribed medications that we test for include alprazolam (Xanax, Niravam), clonazepam (Klonopin), diazepam (Valium), carisoprodol (Soma), amphetamine (Adderall, Dyanavel XR, Evekeo, Dexedrine, & others), pregabalin (Lyrica), and gabapentin (Neurontin, Gralise, and Horizant). In addition, we can also conduct a broad range of testing specific to pain medication management.
TREATMENT PLAN COMPLIANCE
When creating and implementing a treatment plan, toxicology testing helps you make informed decisions and ensure patient compliance and monitor medications. Are your patients taking their prescribed medications as directed? Are they using other substances that could interfere with prescribed medications, hinder treatment, or result in serious complications?
Whether you are managing a patient’s medications or aiding treatment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from addiction, we offer a variety of testing services to serve your needs. In addition to alcohol, illegal drug, and controlled substance testing, our lab has the ability to test for the parent drug and metabolites of medications commonly used in the treatment of addiction including buprenorphine (Buprenex, Butrans) and methadone (Dolophine, Methadone HCl, Methadose).
Assessing patient compliance and medication monitoring through urine testing is critical when prescribing controlled substances for pain management. Testing helps you make informed decisions, measure patient compliance to a treatment plan, and mitigates risk for you and your practice.
Our lab has the ability to test for the parent drug and metabolite of medications commonly used in the management of chronic and acute pain including codeine, morphine (DepoDur, Astramorph, & others), hydrocodone (Hysingla ER, Zohydro ER, Vantrela ER), norhydrocodone, hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Hydromorph, & others), oxycodone (Oxycontin, Oxecta, Roxicodone), noroxycodone, oxymorphone (Opana), naloxone (Evzio), naltrexone (Revia and Vivitrol), meperidine (Demerol), normeperidine, tapentadol (Nucynta, Palexia), tramadol (Ultram, Zytram, & others), and fentanyl (Actiq, Duragesic, Fentora, & others).
ValidTOX, or validity testing, is a proprietary assay that detects synthetic urine. We offer the True Urine LD test, which is intended to detect invalid counterfeit and freeze-dried urine specimens submitted for DOA testing. Counterfeit urine, commonly known as synthetic or fake urine, is widely sold illegally for use by drug users to subvert drug tests. The True Urine LD test has a secondary use as an indicator of invalidity due to adulteration.
How It Works
Historically, synthetic urine has not been effectively detected. The validity testing has identified markers present in urine which are measured to determine if the specimen originated from the urinary tract. The LD marker, called Urinary Tract Protein IV (UTP-IV), is a glycoprotein entering the urine from various parts of the urinary tract. These proteins are stable in urine for at least a week at ambient temperature or for one month refrigerated at 2-8 degrees Celsius. Simply put, the test measures if the urine sample has these markers and where it falls along cutoff limits in order to report pass or fail on specimen validity.
The True Urine LD test is great for centers working with rehab and addiction, mental and behavioral health providers, and any other clinics working with urine samples. If you have any need to determine if the specimen you're working with is valid or if you just want to ensure the greatest verification of your results, validity testing is a great help.
DRUG AND ALCOHOL TESTING
Urine testing is a simple and accurate way to gain insight regarding drug and alcohol use. Whether you’re determining a patient’s eligibility for a particular treatment or ensuring compliance with an addiction recovery plan, we offer a range of drug and alcohol tests to help you make informed decisions. We also provide neonatal and newborn testing for alcohol, alcohol metabolites, and nicotine.
EtG and EtS testing:
EtG (Ethyl Glucuronide) and EtS (Ethyl sulfate) testing is ideal when you suspect recent alcohol consumption. Both EtG and EtS, metabolites of ingested ethanol, are detectable in urine for up to 80 hours after consumption, even when ethanol itself is no longer measurable.
Other types of drug testing:
In addition to our ethanol, EtG, and EtS testing, our lab has the ability to test for the parent drug and metabolite of common illicit drugs including 6-Acetylmorphine (Heroin), MDMA, MDA, MDEA, PCP, Benzoylecgonine (Cocaine), Mitragynine (Kratom), and Methamphetamine.
