Rapid Detect Inc. strongly recommends that a SAMHSA certified laboratory confirm all non-negative results. Please call us directly for assistance.
Are there products that can be used in the tests to give a false negative? What can be done to avoid this?
Although there are only a small handful of products that can be used to change the result of an impending test, there are validity screens available which can detect these adulterants. Some are integrated into the tests, such as the iCup®, which has built-in adulteration available, and we also have individual adulteration strips.
Urine and oral drug screens do not pose a bio hazard risk and can be disposed of in regular waste receptacles.
It is always important to collect a sufficient amount of specimen in case of a non-negative result. The confirmation laboratory requires a minimum of 15mL of specimen but prefers 30mL for urine testing. For saliva, it is 2mL.
All drug test devices can be stored at room temperature up to the date of expiration printed on the individual foil pouch. They cannot be stored in extreme heat or cold and must remain sealed in the foil pouch until use.
