Urine drug testing is the most common and customizable screening method available in the drug testing world. Many times drug tests are ordered from companies, courts, or individuals without knowing what drug panel is needing to be analyzed.

The most common drug panel options include the 5,10, 12, 14 and 17 panel drug tests but we also offer specialized and customized panels based on your specific need and we are here to discuss exactly what is tested in each type of drug test panel.

Urine or Hair Drug Testing - You Choose!

The detection period for a urine drug test is 1-5 days. However, hair drug testing is becoming more common due to the fact that the detection period can be up to 90 days. You must have at least an inch and a half of hair on your head or body hair may be used when conducting a hair drug test.

Facts About 5 Panel Drug Test

  • The most cost-effective option in the workplace
  • Used by the Department of Transportation (DOT) for safety-sensitive positions that are regulated by DOT agencies (FMCSA, FAA, USCG, PRA, PHMSA, FTA)
  • Tests for marijuana, opiates, PCP, cocaine, and amphetamines

Remember that many opioid addictions lead to further drug use, including heroin, so you may find that a standard 5 and 10 panel is not fulfilling your needs. In this case, consider a 12-panel drug test, which tests for additional opiates and painkillers that would not show up on a test with fewer panels.

A urine test detects recent drug use and is currently the only testing method that is approved for federally-mandated drug testing. Urine testing is appropriate for all testing reasons, from pre-employment to random to post-accident - and can be performed for a wide range of illicit and prescription drugs.

The 5 panel drug test is the test which is used by the Department of Transportation (DOT) for all modes and it is the most common drug test used by employers who have a Drug Free Workplace Program.

What is the "New" DOT 5 panel drug test? DOT 5 Panel Drug Test

The 5 panel drug test, specifically the urine, is by far the most popular test and the ONLY drug test for the Department of Transportation (DOT).

The drugs tested in a DOT 5 Panel drug test are as follows:

  1. Marijuana metabolites
  2. Cocaine metabolites
  3. Phencyclidine
  4. Opioids** - codeine, heroin, morphine, oxycodone, oxymorphone, hydrocodone & hydromorphone
  5. Amphetamines -amphetamine, methamphetamine, MDMA & MDA

Some common names for the new semi-synthetic opioids include OxyContin®, Percodan®, Percocet®, Vicodin®, Lortab®, Norco®, Dilaudid®, and Exalgo®

Both a standard 5 panel drug test or a 5 panel + Expanded Opiates drug test is available when scheduling. A 5 panel drug test can be conducted utilizing urine or hair follicles.

The 5 panel drug test service is commonly used for court, school programs, internships, employment or by employers who utilize a 5 panel drug test as part of a drug free workplace. The 5 panel drug test is becoming a more common drug test for individuals and employers wishing to screen for prescription drugs in addition to common street drugs.

The 5 panel drug test service can also have additional screens added including expanded opiates, which will cover 7 additional opiate drug classifications.

A standard NON-DOT 5 panel drug test service screens for the following drugs:

  • Amphetamines
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Opiates
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)

A 5 panel drug test with expanded opiates screens for these additional drugs:

  • Hydromorphone
  • Hydrocodone
  • Oxycodone
  • Oxymorphone
  • Vicodin

  • Lorcet

What is a drug test?

A drug test is a technical analysis of a biological specimen such as urine, hair, blood, breath, finger nail and oral fluid/saliva. The common procedure for a drug test is to have a donor provide a specimen to a drug testing collection specialist, complete a chain of custody form and then the collector will send by carrier the specimen to a laboratory for analysis and a determination if the specimen is negative or positive. Although there many laboratories in the United States which provide drug testing analysis, it is recommended that only a laboratory that is SAMHSA Certified is to be used when determining a drug testing result.

Does passive smoke inhalation cause a false positive for marijuana?

"Passive" smoke inhalation from being in a room with people smoking marijuana is not considered valid, as the cut-off concentrations for lab analysis are set well above that which might occur for passive inhalation.

Other abnormalities in the urine screen may indicate that results may be a false negative or that there was deliberate adulteration of the sample. For example:

  • a low creatinine lab value can indicate that a urine sample was tampered with; either the subject diluted their urine by consuming excessive water just prior to testing, or water was added to the urine sample.
  • creatinine levels are often used in conjunction with specific gravity to determine if samples have been diluted. To help avoid this problem, the testing lab may color the water in their toilet blue to prevent the sample being diluted with water from the toilet.
  • subjects may also attempt to add certain enzymes to the urine sample to affect stability, but this often changes the pH, which is also tested.

How long do drugs stay in your system?

The window of detection or often times referred to as look back period of a drug test depend on several factors.  Some of the factors impacting how long a drug will stay in your system are:

  • The amount of the drug taken
  • The frequency of the drug taken
  • The type of drug taken
  • An individual's body metabolic rate and general health
  • The amount of fluids consumed since ingesting the drug
  • The amount of exercise since ingesting the drug
  • Other genetic variations that would impact an individual's response to a specific drug

In the case of life-threatening symptoms, unconsciousness, or bizarre behavior in an emergency situation, screening for common drugs and toxins may help find the cause, called a toxicology test or tox screen to denote the broader area of possible substances beyond just self-administered drugs. These tests can also be done post-mortem during an autopsy in cases where a death was not expected. The test is usually done within 96 h (4 days) after the desire for the test is realized. Both a urine sample and a blood sample may be tested.  A blood sample is routinely used to detect ethanol/methanol and ASA/paracetamol intoxication. Various panels are used for screening urine samples for common substances, e.g. triage 8 that detects amphetamines, benzodiazepines, cocaine, methadone, opiates, cannabis, barbiturates and tricyclic antidepressants. Results are given in 10-15 min.
