Flexible Collection Options
At Clinical Labs, we offer your organisation more flexibility with two collection options. Choose which method of collection suits your organisation and employees.
On-site drug testing – A time-saving collection method that also allows for earlier detection of affected employees. Either a urine or saliva sample can be used for analysis, with urine being the ‘gold standard’ and more cost-effective. Our on-site urine drug-testing collection procedures and kits are AS/NZS 4308-2008 compliant. Sample containers are tamper-evident and initial results are available in 5-10 minutes. Our breath alcohol equipment is AS 3547-1997 accredited.
Accredited Clinical Labs Collection Centre – Simply provide your employees with a referral form to visit a conveniently located Clinical Labs Accredited Collection Centre (ACC). All urine drug screens collected at a Clinical Labs ACC are supervised collections, with full AS/NZS 4308-2008 testing conducted in our secure toxicology laboratories. We also offer collection services to AS/NZS 4308-2008 standard at many of our ACC’s.
Samples will be transported to our secure central toxicology labs, via a strict chain of custody, for analysis and confirmation of all non-negative results. The analysis of all Drug & Alcohol Testing pathology samples is conducted in our state-of-the-art NATA-accredited toxicology laboratories under the supervision of our expert RCPA-accredited pathologists.
