Drugs can be a terrible thing. They can destroy people’s lives, their families, or worse…they could completely kill them. Drugs are also a wonderful thing. They can help lives, bring families together, and even save someone’s life if used correctly. At Texas Genetic Labs, LLC, we want to see lives saved. We want to run tests that help physicians save lives. We want a world where drugs are here to help, not to hurt. While we can’t stop some from using drugs incorrectly or taking illicit drugs, we can detect it and help to break that cycle. Texas Genetic Labs, LLC is a drug testing lab that provides services for people in Odessa, TX. As a toxicology testing laboratory, we are a leader in the country to provide toxicology testing that helps to better serve patients everywhere.
Urine Drug Testing
Urine drug testing happens to be the only type of toxicology testing approved by the U.S. government. So when we have an order for a urine sample, we follow procedures to a T. We are a SAMHSA-certified laboratory. We can test a wide array of both prescription and illicit drugs. Some of these include the following:
- MDMA (Ecstasy)
- PCP and Propoxyphene
- Synthetic Cannabinoids
- Synthetic Stimulants
All of our urine drug testing results that are positive come back between 32-48 hours. Even faster, negative results are given within 24 hours.
Oral Fluid Testing
If you are trying to determine recent drug use, oral fluid is the best. It detects drugs in someone’s system immediately after use. Pre-employment screenings, reasonable suspicion, and post-accident testing are all great reasons to choose oral fluid testing. During our tests, we are checking for:
- Methamphetamines (MDMA and its metabolite)
- Opiates (morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, hydromorphone)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
Sample collections typically take about 5 minutes and all results are typically available between 32-48 hours.
Hair Drug Testing
Worried about tampering? Hair drug testing is a tamper resistant way to screen for drugs in someone’s system. We provide a comprehensive report of any positive findings we have in this screening. Many people use this for criminal justice screenings, pre-employment, pain management, athletic programs, etc. We can hair drug test the following drugs:
- Tricyclic Antidepressants
- Synthetic Analgesics
Just like urine and oral, your hair drug testing results will be available after 32-48 hours of the sample being collected.
