Types of Drug Testing

Drug & Alcohol Testing Types

Different business applications and varying circumstances require different testing strategies and different types of drug and alcohol tests. ARCpoint Labs of South Charlotte has the knowledge and experience to know best practices and which tests are best for particular applications. Their professionally trained technicians will advise you on the best options for your situation or application. Then they will administer that testing protocol in compliance with best practices.

Depending on the circumstances, optimal drug testing and targeted results may be achieved through urine tests, blood tests, oral fluid (saliva), hair tests, sweat patch and fingernail drug testing. The detection window, the immediacy of the results required, and what drug or substance is being tested determines which testing method is most applicable. ARCpoint Labs of South Charlotte technicians will help you choose the right test for your application.
