DRUG& ALCOHOLTESTING

ETDT has a valued working relationship with eScreen and Alere/Abbott Toxicology. eScreen’s Drugs of Abuse Screening System is an automated method of workplace drug testing approved by the FDA. eScreen allows employers to obtain negative – or drug free – test results for Non-DOT tests within minutes, rather than the industry standard of 48 to 72 hours. Urine specimens are typically collected at one site, sent to the laboratory for testing, and accompanied by a long paper chain of custody. Samples usually are tested for five illegal substances: marijuana, cocaine, opiates, phencyclidine – or PCP –and amphetamines. Like instant testing kits, eScreen provides immediate results. eScreen allows clients to check results quickly online, and a computerized reader that eliminates human involvement – and potential error – in interpreting results.

The system employs a specially designed plastic specimen cup with a lid that contains urinalysis strips. A plunger transfers the required amount of urine onto the strips; the reader then uses optical technology to determine whether results are negative, a process that takes 2 to 8 minutes. Questionable samples are forwarded for conventional laboratory testing.

ETDT collectors are certified for Department of Transportation “DOT” urine and alcohol collections. We follow DOT protocols for all testing performed in our facility. We can accommodate observed testing (i.e. return-to-duty, follow-up, reasonable suspicion). Please call and speak with one of our collectors regarding observed collections.
