Accuracy - Accuracy - Accuracy



There are three main versions of drug testing kits in use: cassettes/pipettes, cups and dip-sticks. As there are no requirements from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), and most drug testing kits look the same, selection of drug testing kits - for workplace and other critical use - should be based on FDA clearances and performance studies in order to avoid "false negative" or "false positive" test results. In the various - and independent - performance studies conducted, AccuTest™ comes out top ranking in accuracy.

The most important quality of AccuTest™ is its sensitivity to detect drugs which other panels may miss, implicating that an employee may test negative with other drug panels but positive with AccuTest™, which can be an unpleasant surprise for a person arriving at a (remote) work site employing AccuTest™. Likewise, the costs and other consequences of having people stood down, based on a "false positive" drug screen, speaks for itself.

If someone, after having tested negative with AccuTest™, should come out positive in a workplace drug test, it is most likely that the employer is using a test kit that is not FDA cleared and does not perform properly.

The test kit will be sent in a plain envelope and can be expected within two working days.
