Medical Professional Profiles

The drugs of choice for medical professionals may be broader than observed in the routine workplace and often include opiates, benzodiazepines and other narcotics. Labcorp's medical professional profiles are designed to detect substance use by healthcare providers who have access to an array of controlled substances. The medical professional profiles program provides flexible, cost-effective testing for the following:

  • Pre-employment
  • Universal monitoring
  • Random testing
  • Post-rehabilitation compliance

We have one of the most extensive substance abuse testing networks in the U.S. The medical professional profiles consist of a variety of drugs that are commonly abused and readily available in the medical community but not traditionally tested for by employers. We detect these drugs using:

  • Homogeneous Immunoassay and ELISA for most of the initial testing
  • Mass spectrometry confirmation of drugs and drug metabolites
  • Mass spectrometry screening and confirmation of designer and other esoteric drugs can be added to standard panels

Meeting Challenges

Specimen Validity Testing

Labcorp provides specimen validity testing (SVT) to assist in the detection of sample adulteration. SVT testing includes pH and creatinine (reflexing to specific gravity, if low) and analysis for oxidizing adulterants.

Wide Selection of Drugs

Medical professional profiles allow the substance abuse program administrator to monitor a wide variety of drugs with the highest degree of reliability. Profiles incorporate several categories of drugs, including expanded offerings for opiates and benzodiazepines. Profiles may also be customized to meet the needs of your program.
