Preparing to take a drug test at a collection site

by | Jan 3, 2021 | 0 comments

  • Bring a government-issued ID. Examples include a driver’s license, passport, or military ID.
  • The collector will ask you to empty your pockets, remove outer garments (e.g., coveralls, jacket, coat, and hat), leave briefcases, purses, and bags behind, and wash your hands.
  • The collector will ensure that the water in the toilet or tank has bluing (coloring) agent in it. The toilet tank top may also be taped or secured shut and water sources will be unavailable.
  • The restroom will not have soap, disinfectants, cleaning agents, or any other possible adulterants present. Additionally, items such as trash receptacles, paper towel holders, under-sink areas or ceiling tiles that appear suitable for concealing contaminants will not be in the restroom.
  • The collector will not note any prescription drugs a donor is taking on the chain of custody form.
  • Once the drug test is complete, Collection sites cannot provide information related to specimen status, drugs screened for in the panel, or the final drug test result. The final drug test result is directly reported to the employer/TPA ordering the test.
