Frequently Asked Questions :
What If an Employee Receives a Non-Negative Drug Test?
A non-negative drug test is a test where metabolites related to a given drug are present. If the test does not indicate whether they exceed acceptable limits, further laboratory analysis will be needed before a drug test can be a confirmed positive or negative result. Sometimes, the possibility of a false positives from things like adulteration or prescription drug use need to be ruled out. In such cases, donor follow up may be needed. This may involve interviewing the sample donor to review their medical information in case prescription medication or other causes may be producing a false positive.
What Does a Presumptive Positive Drug Test Mean?
Most initial on-site drug screens can indicate the presence of illicit substances, but many don't reveal the level of concentration or the types of substances present. If an initial drug screen picks up signs of drug use, it is usually considered "presumptive positive" until it undergoes further analysis with a confirmatory test in a lab. The second test can determine the types of substances present and whether the amount present exceeds allowable limits.
