Toxicology testing is a very important resource for many different settings. The results are critical for many employers looking to hire new employees, for athletic departments who need to test their student athletes, and for many providers in various healthcare settings. Toxicology tests examine blood, urine or hair for the presence of a wide variety of different kinds of drugs. Texas Genetic Labs, LLC is a leading provider of drug testing services for those in the Texas area and beyond, providing critical information to physicians and other providers about drug use so that they can better serve their patients.
Types Of Toxicology Testing
There are several different types of tests that can be performed to assess the presence of drugs in a person’s system. The most common types of toxicology tests include:
1. Urine drug tests: Urine drug testing is very commonly used, easy to administer and low cost. Urine testing detects recent drug use and results come back quickly. This is the type of test mandated by the federal government.
2. Oral Fluid testing: One of the benefits of oral fluid testing is that the samples can be gathered by a physician without compromising privacy (like with urine testing). Oral fluid testing can give you information about most recent drug use, even drugs that have been used within minutes or hours of the test. Urine and hair testing cannot detect drugs until they have been in the system for a short period of time.
3. Hair testing: Hair testing is ideal if you are trying to assess past drug use as it can detect drugs as far back as 90 days.
Toxicology testing conducted by Texas Genetic Labs, LLC can detect a wide range of legal and illegal drugs including amphetamines, barbiturates, opioids, PCP, alcohol, cocaine, morphine, GHB, marijuana, benzodiazepines and many more.
