Understanding Drug Testing Types, Methods And Specimen Collection
Examining the wide assortment of drug testing options available and exploring the potential pros and cons of each method
There are several reasons or circumstances that can lead to the necessity of a drug test.
Why do businesses need to randomly drug test employees?
"Pre-employment screening is not good enough to reduce drugs in the workplace as anyone can stop long enough to find a job… ”
“If your business doesn’t drug test, you will likely attract illicit drug abusers looking for employment…”
Why Do Businesses Need Random Employee Drug Tests?
Do you remember the last time you applied for a new job? Or perhaps you are a hiring manager at the business who has accepted many applications and interviewed potential hires. One common part of the hiring process is the pre-employment drug test. No matter what side of the process you are on, this drug test is designed to ensure that the company ends up with the best employees possible who will be able to perform their duties safely and successfully.
Here are the questions we will ask you:
- What drugs do you want to test for?
- What is the purpose of the test? (For example: Are you testing a potential employee, or are you needing a random screening, etc?)
- What time frame are you looking to test? (Drug use within hours, days, months, etc.)
- Where would you like the test to be conducted? (We can collect specimens at our office, come to your location, or conduct the test at a different lab)
- What is your budget for the test?
- How quickly do you need the results?
The answers to these questions will help us decide which type of drug test is best for you.
Be prepared for your drug test:
- Bring your Government Issued Picture ID
- Bring Drug Test Paperwork or Authorization
- Complete TSL Intake Form & HIPAA Disclosure
- Pay for your Test on the same day it happens
- Make sure you are hydrated if you are performing a Urine Test
- Expect to have your nail polish removed if getting a Nail Drug Test
- We do not need your prescription information but a Medical Review Officer (MRO) may contact you after collection to verify your medications.
- For urine testing, plan on arriving 3 hours before we close (1 hr minimum) to provide a cushion of time for a shy bladder situation.
- For hair testing, be sure to dry your hair completely before arriving.
- For nail testing, be sure to clean your nails with soap and water before arriving. Also, artificial nails and polish must be removed.
What Are Your Hours?
All Test Smartly Labs are open Monday through Friday, from 9am - 5pm

Do We Need To Have An Appointment?
No appointment is required to come into our labs, and all of our locations are on a walk-in basis. However, it is recommended you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to closing. If your situation requires special time considerations, please call us to determine if it would be better to arrange an appointment time.
Do I Need Doctors’ Orders For Testing?
No doctors’ orders needed, we are a Direct-Access Testing Center. You are encouraged to consult your medical professional with your lab test results.
What’s The Turnaround Time For Lab Work?
Average turnaround time is 2-5 business days depending on the complexity of the lab work. Most tests are available in 2-3 days.
Do You Need A List Of My Medications For A Drug Test?
Per protocol, the lab techs are not allowed to receive or ask for your medications. A medical review officer or MRO, a licensed physician who specializes in toxicology, will call you and ask for your medications and your physician’s phone number if it’s detected in your sample during testing. The MRO will then call your physician to verify your medications.
Why We Perform Observed Collections
Observed collection involves a tester (of the same gender as the person being tested) observing the direct collection of urine as it passes from the donor’s body into the container. This system is in accordance with the Department of Transportation's most strict standards to minimize the abuse of drugs by any DOT-related person, from truck drivers to the Coast Guard. At Test Smartly Labs we test by these gold standards even when the DOT isn’t involved to ensure maximum accuracy, minimized risk of cheating, and reliability of every test we administer. For a DOT observed collection the donor must raise his or her shirt to just above the navel, lower their pants and underwear, and complete a full rotation in view of the tester to ensure a substitution device is not being hidden.
Observed collections are necessary in circumstances where the accuracy of the test can result in a safer or more dangerous life for those related to the person being tested, such as for late-night truck drivers or pilots. Test Smartly Labs takes everyone’s life seriously, including the person being tested, and we will make every effort to reduce discomfort and maintain professionalism without sacrificing security.
