Frequently Asked Questions
Every family situation is different. Some children are experimenting with drugs as young as 8 and 9 years old. We suggest that a program of random drug testing is implemented by the age of 12.
First of all, stay calm. You are in control and now have the proof that your child is using drugs. Our program manual teaches you how to respond to a positive test. We're with you every step of the way. Should your child need counseling or treatment, we have the resources to help you take the next steps.
Some children may refuse to comply with taking a drug test. We address this issue in our program manual. As a last resort, we do offer parents a method to test their child without the child's knowledge.
Each panel shows the positive or negative result for a particular drug or drug category. So you know at a glance which drug you have tested positive for if there is one red line on the test strip.

There is no established optimum percentage of random tests that will ensure the most effective deterrence and detection program. Logically, a very small percentage (e.g., 5 percent) may not be sufficient to deter or detect someone abusing an illicit substance, while a very high percentage (e.g., 95 percent) might be much more than is needed to maintain an effective program. The Department of Transportation permits the percentage of random tests to vary depending on the positive rate. In some cases, an industry is permitted to test at a 10 percent random rate while another industry is required to test at a 50 percent rate. Please contact DOT at 202-366-3784 for additional information on its policy.

No - because our rapid drug tests react to drugs and drug metabolites, not to these substances which have a different chemical structure.
Saliva, urine and blood only show up a positive or negative result, not how long ago a drug has been taken.
No you cannot as the urine concentration, if any, will be way below the cut-off level.
No, it cannot. Each drug needs a specific test. We do offer multi-drug tests – up to 10 drugs can be tested at a time.
Yes, it is. All it takes is a few minutes with our rapid drug testing products.
A rapid drug test is a diagnostic test that very quickly gives you the results that show whether or not you have the presence of a specific drug in your body.
You can use a rapid drug test to ensure privacy. This is very useful in a variety of situations – at home, school, place of work, pre-employment, after accidents, random testing for drugs, etc.
Our tests can be used to determine the presence of the following drugs of abuse:
- Amphetamines (AMP)
- Barbiturates (BAR)
- Benzodiazepines (BZO)
- Cocaine (COC)
- Ecstacy (MDMA)
- Marijuana (THC)
- Methamphetamines (mAMP)
- Methadone (MTD)
- Morphine (MOP)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
- Propoxyphene (PPX)
- Opiates (OPI)
- Oxycodone (OXY)
- Trycyclic Antidepressants (TCA)
Rapid drug tests detect the presence of drug metabolites in saliva or urine in minutes. When a detection strip is wetted with a saliva or urine specimen, the specimen reacts with the reagents and antigens on the strip and produces a color reading so you can interpret a positive or negative result.
The Dip Card is dipped into a urine specimen to obtain results. A cup is a convenient method of testing where the specimen is collected in the cup and tested there as well. There is no handling of the specimen.
Our products are reliable. Our tests are United States FDA-cleared (unless stated otherwise). Laboratory testing has revealed that they are over 95% accurate. However, it is always advisable to get results confirmed by a laboratory.
