Drug testing in its simplest form is divided into two parts, screening and then confirmation. Any customer buying drug screening kits from D.Tec should have a drug & alcohol policy and a legally defensible confirmation system in place. All of which D.Tec can assist with.
Different sample types like urine, saliva and skin allow an employer to see different things and over different time windows.
Urine and skin allow us to see the inactive metabolites of the drugs that can prove a drug was consumed recently, in the last few days or even with some drugs, weeks. So this would highlight a drug "user." Urine and skin are however limited in effectiveness for the first couple of hours. Conversely, saliva allows us to see the active and impairing components of the drugs and sees those drugs that were consumed in just the last few hours to half a day. So saliva indicates someone that is likely currently "impaired."
Uniquely, DrugWipe Dual is a screener that combines the short time span saliva results with the novel addition of adding a longer time window skin wipe result, to give a world beating time window for detecting drug users.
The result is a very effective drug screen with a similar time frame to that the urine but amazingly without the inconvenience, offence or cost of taking a urine sample.
However, once a non-negative drug screen is seen, D.Tec strongly advices and fully expects the screening result to be confirmed by another means. We offer a fully accredited urine confirmation collection and laboratory analysis service, 24h/365d at a target of 2 hours notice. This is available to all customers who have previously signed up to this service.
