Urine Drug Testing

2 - 4 day testing history

Starts at $45.00+

Urine drug testing is still the most popular choice in drug and alcohol detection.  Drug and alcohol use can be detected 2 to 4 days after consumption.  Positive tests will indicate consumption only and not exposure.  Collection sites and labs are well trained to detect cheating, but adulteration/substitution is easier in urine testing. Paramex Screening offers multiple pre-designed testing panels, and the ability to customize your tested substances to include or exclude specific drug types and screen for less popular or new drugs.
