Urine drug testing is an affordable easy-to-use, drug testing solution that can be used in Cardiff at home by worried family members or in businesses as part of their workplace drug testing policy.

AlphaBiolabs urine drug test kit can be used by both men and women. The fully integrated screening cup has test strips built-in and a sealed cap that is guaranteed not to leak even during transport. Its tamper protection features help ensure the integrity of both the sample and the results.

The urine drug test kit can test for 14 drugs and their metabolites:

  • amphetamine
  • barbiturates
  • benzodiazepines
  • buprenorphine
  • cannabis
  • cocaine
  • MDMA (ecstasy)
  • Ketamine
  • Methadone
  • Methamphetamine
  • Opiates
  • phencyclidine (PCP)
  • propoxyphene and
  • tramadol.

The window of detection for any drugs in urine samples is up to 72 hours because most drugs are flushed out of the body in a matter of days. Drugs including cocaine, MDMA and methamphetamine can be present in urine for roughly 3–5 days, but cannabis can stay in urine for as long as 28 days after chronic use.

Workplace urine drug testing in Cardiff

The urine drug test kit is an ideal workplace drug testing method because it is quick, accurate and provides an immediate result on-site. If the result is negative, no further action is needed. If the urine screen shows a non-negative result, the sample needs to be sent back to AlphaBiolabs’ laboratory for quantitative tests to determine exactly which drugs are present and in what quantity.

Our fast laboratory confirmation results can be made available the next day, and even the same day if required.

Workplace sample collectors visit any business address, follow strict procedures to ensure that chain of custody is retained and that confidentiality remains throughout the whole testing process. Alternatively, you can visit our Walk in Centre in Grange Medical Practice, 25 Bishop Street, Cardiff, where one of our trained sample collectors can take your sample.
