The AlphaBiolabs urine drug test kit is an affordable easy to use, drug testing solution that can be used at home by worried family members or in businesses as part of their workplace drug testing policy.

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

The window of detection for the urine drug test kit 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.

Urine drug test kit for workplace testing

The urine drug test kit is a common workplace drug testing method. It is ideal for on-site testing because it is quick, accurate and provides an immediate result. 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 for quantitative tests to determine exactly which drugs are present and in what quantity. Laboratory confirmation results can be made available the next day, and even the same day when required.

A dedicated toilet facility needs to be provided for the testing process. This is to minimise the adulteration of samples by sealing cisterns and taps. Sample donors are also asked to empty their pockets and leave bags and belongings outside of the testing area.

Workplace sample collectors follow strict procedures to ensure that chain of custody is retained and that confidentiality remains throughout the whole testing process.
