Laboratory Confirmation

Over the past twenty years, we have established relationships across a national network of NATA Accredited laboratories who conduct confirmatory drug and alcohol in oral fluid, urine and hair samples. These laboratory confirmation services report most oral fluid and urine results within 1 business day from receipt at the laboratory.

Oral fluid laboratory confirmation testing
