Drug Testing Methods Explained

Drug testing methods have varying costs, invasiveness, effectiveness, and detection windows. The Lobdock team can help you determine which approach is best for your company.  

Urine Drug Testing:

  • Most widely-used method
  • Accurate
  • Detection begins within minutes or hours of use, lasting 2 to 30 days depending on the amount of drug use and the substance tested
  • Testing is unsupervised, so sample substitution can occur
  • Unannounced random testing is most effective in yielding accurate results
  • Used by all federal drug testing programs

Oral Fluid Testing:

  • Sample is collected by spitting into a vial or putting a cotton swab in the mouth to collect saliva
  • Detection window begins immediately and lasts 3 to 4 days, depending on the substance
  • Oral fluid is difficult to substitute for a specimen, making this method good for random testing programs. 
  • Costs are comparable to urine drug screening
  • Opioid and marijuana detection window is shorter than with urine drug screenings

Hair Drug Testing:

  • Roughly 150 strands of hair required for the sample
  • Detection window begins about a week after drug use and lasts at least 90 days
  • Longer detection window helps detect amphetamines, methamphetamines, and cocaine use
  • Best used for pre-employment testing for critically-safe sensitive work sites
  • Federal testing programs don’t allow for hair testing
  • Known to be more sensitive for individuals who have darker pigmented hair
  • Costs are nearly double the price of urine drug screen or oral fluid testing

Blood Drug Testing:

  • Rarely recommended
  • Most expensive drug testing form
  • Not used by any federal drug-testing program except in the Federal Railroad Administration
  • Can be useful for recent use of marijuana tests – since the detection window is a matter of minutes or hours – if you are trying to determine whether an employee used the substance in the workplace
