When minutes count, Labcorp's rapid test programs offer drugs of abuse screening that is rapid and reliable.
Rapid point-of-collection testing (POCT) provides on-site screening for drugs of abuse, urine specimen validity and saliva alcohol following Labcorp’s chain of custody protocol.
We perform rapid tests in many of our patient service centers nationwide, or customers may choose to perform tests in their own facilities.
Rapid tests performed at Labcorp patient service centers (PSCs) that screen negative typically have results available to the ordering client within four hours. Labcorp’s certified laboratories provide mass spectrometry confirmation for non-negative rapid test drug screens. Mass spectrometry confirmation results are typically available within 48-72 hours after the specimen is received in the laboratory.
The POCT process uses the same methodology as lab-based initial screening but is performed by the specimen collector at the point of collection with a single use FDA-cleared test device. When collections and testing are performed in a Labcorp PSC, the screening results are entered into our web-based tool. Once entered, results are downloaded into the laboratory information system, enabling customers to obtain electronic reports and statistical summary data. The rapid test result entry web tool is available for use by customers who choose to perform the screening in their own facilities.
Available urine drug screen rapid tests range from one to nine drugs including:
Mass spectrometry confirmation of non-negative specimens is available through our SAMHSA-certified laboratories.
Labcorp offers rapid tests that provide information about the possible adulteration of urine samples submitted for drugs of abuse testing.
Labcorp offers saliva alcohol rapid tests that are performed with a DOT-conforming product and following Labcorp’s chain of custody protocol. Saliva alcohol screening is available at Labcorp PSCs. Customers may also choose to perform tests in their own facilities.
