Urine testing is the most frequently used method of drug testing because of its broad range of drug panels and proven methodology. It allows for customization to detect recent drug use in the previous 24 to 72 hours. It can be used for a wide variety of testing situations and is a reliable solution for most testing reasons such as pre-employment, random, post-accident suspicion, or follow-up.
