We’ve Got the Drug Test You Need


5 Panel Tests

The 5-panel drug test is frequently required by employers, government agencies, and athletic organizations to ensure compliance with their drug-free policies.

The 5-panel tests for the presence of:

  • Amphetamines: This category includes drugs such as amphetamine and methamphetamine, which are stimulant drugs that can be both legally prescribed and illegally used.
  • Cannabinoids: This category primarily tests for the presence of marijuana (THC) in the system.
  • Cocaine: This test detects the presence of cocaine, a powerful stimulant drug that is illegal to use and possess.
  • Opiates: This category tests for opium-derived drugs such as morphine, codeine, and heroin. Some prescription pain relievers fall into this category.
  • Phencyclidine (PCP): This test detects the presence of PCP, an illegal hallucinogenic drug also known as angel dust.

7 Panel

The 7-panel drug test allows for the detection of a wider range of substances compared to the standard 5-panel drug test which is routinely used for federally regulated positions.

A 7-panel drug test screens for the following substances:

  • Amphetamines - such as Adderall, methamphetamine
  • Cannabinoids - marijuana, hashish
  • Cocaine - crack, powder
  • Opiates - morphine, codeine, heroin
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)
  • Benzodiazepines - Valium, Xanax, Ativan
  • Barbiturates - Seconal, Phenobarbital

Employers in the private sector, who are not regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT), often choose the 7-panel drug test to ensure a drug-free workplace. This test is particularly useful in industries where safety is paramount, such as manufacturing, construction, and aviation. In addition to private sector employers, the 7-panel drug test is also used by:

  • Court systems for probation and parole
  • Child custody cases
  • Drug treatment facilities
  • Schools and universities

The 7-panel drug test is administered under several circumstances, including:

  • Pre-employment testing: Employers may require candidates to undergo drug testing as part of the hiring process.
  • Random testing: Employers may randomly select employees for unannounced drug testing to maintain a drug-free workplace.
  • Post-accident testing: Following a workplace incident, employees may be tested to determine if drugs played a role in the accident.
  • Reasonable suspicion: If an employer has reason to believe an employee may be under the influence of drugs, they may require a drug test.
  • Return-to-duty testing: For employees who have previously tested positive, a return-to-duty test is conducted to ensure they are drug-free before resuming their duties.

9 Panel Tests

A 9-panel drug test screens for nine specific drugs or their metabolites.

  • Amphetamines (AMP) – Stimulant drugs, including methamphetamine and MDMA.
  • Barbiturates (BAR) – Sedative medications such as Phenobarbital and Secobarbital.
  • Benzodiazepines (BZO) – Sedatives and anti-anxiety medications like Valium and Xanax.
  • Cannabinoids (THC) – Compounds found in cannabis, such as marijuana and hashish.
  • Cocaine (COC) – A powerful stimulant drug derived from coca leaves.
  • Methadone (MTD) – A synthetic opioid used as a maintenance medication for opioid dependence.
  • Methaqualone (MQL) – A sedative and hypnotic drug, no longer prescribed due to its potential for abuse.
  • Opiates (OPI) – A class of drugs derived from the opium poppy, including morphine and codeine.
  • Phencyclidine (PCP) – A dissociative drug that can cause hallucinations and alter perception.

A 9-panel drug test might be required for various reasons, including pre-employment screenings, random employee drug tests, sports organizations seeking to maintain a drug-free environment, and legal or court-mandated testing. Additionally, healthcare professionals may use these tests to monitor patients undergoing treatment for substance abuse or addiction.

10 Panel Tests

The 10-Panel Tests screen for ten different substances in an individual's system. These tests are commonly used by employers, courts, and rehabilitation facilities to assess an individual's drug use and maintain a drug-free environment.

The substances tested in our 10-panel test include:

  • Amphetamines
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana (THC)
  • Methadone
  • Methaqualone
  • Opiates
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)
  • Propoxyphene

These tests are performed using a urine sample, which is then analyzed to determine if any of the listed substances are present in the individual's system. The sensitivity of the test can vary, but it is generally capable of detecting drug use within the previous 2-3 days.
