Drug Test Accuracy
Drug Testing is required and defensible by Law.
The accuracy of a drug test is an essential issue that must be considered when choosing a test for a particular purpose. When considering accuracy for drug and reliability to test urine, look at the budget, location and level of accuracy needed.
An adulteration test, confirms that the specimen is unadulterated, lending further validity of the tests. When considering the accuracy of a drug test, samples must be analyzed for adulteration. It is the law that all positive D.O.T. tests be verified by an Medical Review Officer (MRO).
A Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a licensed physician who has knowledge of substance abuse and medical training to interpret and evaluate an individual’s positive test results while considering medical history and relevant biomedical information. With this information, a MRO reviews drug test results. They determine when an individual is drug free and the risk of subsequent use of dangerous drugs and may require an individual to agree to be subjected to unannounced testing.
These tests are legally defensible evidence of drug use.
