Toxicology Testing Services
Texas Genetic Labs has been a leader in the toxicology testing space for quite some time. We’ve been able to distance ourselves from competitors by partnering with hospitals, physicians, and medical labs to provide both standard and customized drug testing services. We work extremely hard to develop strong relationships with our doctors to ensure that they’re able to deliver the highest level of toxicology testing services to their patients.
Our clients use our drug testing services to help mitigate medical practice liabilities by allowing physicians to better monitor prescribed as well as unprescribed drugs, helping to decrease any harmful side effects and improve overall patient health. Regular toxicology testing is especially important when doctors are prescribing pain medications if their patients have any history of drug abuse or addiction.
When partnering with Texas Genetic Labs you’re working with a state of the art facility offering a whole host of services to help meet your needs. Below are just a few of the many reasons why doctors in Texas and beyond are turning to our company for all of their toxicology testing needs.
Ultra-Fast Toxicology Testing Turnaround Times
As a doctor looking to improve the livelihood of your patients, you want accurate drug testing results, and you want them as quickly as possible. Testing begins as soon as a specimen arrives at our lab. Results are typically provided within 32-48 hours accompanied by a detailed report that allows doctors to have ample information to share with their patients.
Ability to Screen for a Large Number of Illegal and Prescription Drugs
At Texas Genetic Labs, LLC we’re able to screen patients for hundreds of different drugs – both legal and illegal. In our years of service to medical professionals, the most commonly tested substances include:
- Synthetic Analgesics
- Tricyclic Antidepressants
Urine Drug Testing Services
Urine drug testing is used to help detect recent drug use and is the only accepted method approved by the federal government. Many businesses rely on urine drug testing because of its low cost and ability to screen for a large number of drugs both prescribed and unprescribed. Urine drug testing typically detects drug use within the previous one to three days.
Oral Fluid Testing Services
Oral fluid testing offers confidential drug test results using an easy-to-use collection method. Using oral fluid instead of urine, donors are able to cap their own samples on-site and in the presence of a witness, which helps to reduce tampering. Compared to hair and urine drug tests, oral fluid is optimal at detecting recent drug use. Drugs often take time to show up in urine or hair samples, but an oral fluid drug test can often show drugs in a donor’s system nearly immediately after use. This makes oral testing ideal for situations where doctors are interested in what’s in a patient’s system at the time of the drug test collection.
Hair Testing Services
Hair testing for drug abuse is the only method that offers a 90-day history of drug use. Compared to urine, hair testing offers almost twice the number of positives because of its longer detection window. Hair testing is the best method of establishing long-term patterns of drug use. Hair drug testing only requires a small sample, which can be collected without any invasion of privacy concerns.
Fully Customized Toxicology Testing Solutions
Because of our wide variety of drug testing services, we can easily develop a fully customized program based on your practice’s unique needs. By offering a full array of toxicology testing services using hair, urine, blood, and oral samples allows us to handle the constantly changing needs of our doctors. Whether you’re interested in drug testing for forensic and postmortem exams, criminal justice screening, pre-employment screening, pain management clinics, mental healthcare facilities, or substance abuse treatment centers, Texas Genetic Labs stands ready to assist.
In today’s fast-paced marketplace, online reporting is key to getting pertinent drug results in front of our doctors as soon as possible. Using our comprehensive online reporting, doctors are able to easily log in to a secure portal to access and analyze results instantly as they become available. This eliminates some of the delay that was often seen with hard copy drug test reporting. Detailed reports allow doctors to quickly and accurately adjust patient’s medications and improve their overall well-being through close drug monitoring.

Not only do we offer the latest in online reporting capabilities, but we also utilize the latest state of the art testing services to ensure our doctors have received the highest level of service possible.
