We provide drug screen collection services overseen by trained and experienced personnel. That’s important as you manage and monitor your workforce.

In addition, our rapid drug screen technology provides same-day results, while our lab based drug testing results are usually available in 24-48 hours.

Quality is central to our service. Medical review officers supervise drug screens and breath alcohol testing is completed by Certified Breath Alcohol Technicians.
