Urine testing is the first type of testing that comes to most people’s mind when they think of methods for drug testing. And while urine drug testing is the only type of drug testing that is approved for federally-mandated drug testing, there actually are several other types of drug testing available. Each type of drug testing comes with its own pros and cons, and each patient has his or her own unique situation or need. This is why as a leading provider of drug testing services in Texas, the team at Texas Genetics Labs are proud to offer customized drug testing solutions to suit the varying needs of our clients.
Wide Range Of Drug Testing Options In Texas
At Texas Genetic Labs, LLC, we are pleased to offer our patients several options when it comes to toxicology testing. Each type of drug testing has its own pros and cons to be weighed to determine exactly which would work best for the testing requirements of the individual. And while we can’t possibly cover every point of each type of drug testing and situation in this blog, here are some of the basics:
- Urine Drug Testing is by far the most common and widely accepted toxicology testing method used. This lower cost test uses the ideal, non-invasive collection method of urine from patients. Urine drug testing is widely used and is able to detect the presence of a variety of both prescription and illegal drugs that range from synthetic stimulants and cannabinoids, to oxycodone and amphetamines.
- Oral Drug Testing is a valid drug testing method that when performed by our lab techs, is a quick and tamper-free method.
- Hair Drug Testing at Texas Genetic Labs is another method of testing that is difficult to tamper with. Patients need to provide a minimal sample of hair in order to be tested for a wide variety of drugs. Hair testing has it’s own unique pros and cons and is able to provide an interesting timeline of drug exposure that goes beyond just a few days.
- Blood Drug Testing can detect the presence of all illicit and prescription drugs by obtaining a blood sample from a patient with a finger prick or from a vein.
Regardless of the type of drug testing you use with your patients, Texas Genetic Labs offers the same quick reporting of test results and instant online reporting of drug test results.
