Our Rapid Test is the best option for large and small companies and organizations who need Non-DOT screening with immediate results. These products give your HR Director or Designated Employee Representative (DER) an instant answer if and when a substance of abuse is detected for an employee or contractor. Positive Rapid Tests, require a Medical Review Officer’s (MRO, a licensed MD or DO) investigation and report to determine if there are current prescriptions for positive hits on prescriptive drugs or to verify illicit drug use to provide legal support for your decision making process. In most cases, if termination is the solution to a positive result, the MRO report is a key legal protection in the event an employee who is terminated files a wrongful termination action against you or the company. The employee’s sample is sent to one of our certified labs, tested using Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) to verify the presence of all substances, relating to both illicit and prescription drugs. The MRO then issues a detailed report of the substances and vouch’s for the result found in the Rapid Test. The cost of this verification is a nominal, but invaluable.
You can rely on the result found using our Rapid Tests. The economy of using MDT to conduct your screening is second to none. The cost of sending an employee out for a lab test at a physical lab, averages over $600, taking into account, travel time to and from the lab, during a shift or productive hours as well as lost production for the time they are out for the test.
The most common problem with sending your workers to labs, is adulteration of the workers sample. Most communities have Vape shops, Tobacco Shops and Head Shops that stock and sell human urine for the low price of $15 to $35 for a 45 cc sample. The introduction of the purchased urine into the test, is done in private, without observation, proper questioning or visual examination, to determine if the worker is hiding a sample on his or her person. This is typically done by tucking the purchased urine inside the workers underwear in the hollow between the abdomen and groin area. If the person who collects the sample, usually a receptionist or lab assistant, does not require the removal of all outerwear, jackets sweaters or other garments that can conceal an adulterant. this results in a drug abuser passing the screen, and coming back to work, possibly endangering the donor, other workers and or customers of your business.
