Assessment of the Drug Test Kits.
The employers are supposed to maintain the security at the workplace. The employers can be responsible for the safety at the workplace by making it a drug-free zone. When the workers are tested for the drugs, the results are better compliance with law, fewer workers compensation claims fewer legal hassles to business. When this is done, it helps build an employee-employer trust and relationship which in return will see the business growing in a healthy way. The employers can use many ways to test their employee on drug use. They are, pre-employment drug screening, scheduled and random drug testing.
The employers can use the drug test kits to test the drug use by the employees as these kits are designed for the workplace. Both single and multi-panel test kits can be used at the workplace. In this article, we will analyze the drug test kits. A single drug can be tested using a single-panel test kit using a sample like urine and saliva. They are easy to use, economical and give quick results.
The drug test that is able to test more than one drug at a time is the multi-panel drug test kit. The multi-panel drug test kits are named based on the number of the drugs they test such as the 3-panel,5-panel, and the 12-panel drug test kits. The drugs such as methamphetamine, barbiturates, buprenorphine, marijuana, opiate, oxycodone, and phencyclidine can be detected using a single sample with these kits. The multi-panel drug test kit is more economical and advantageous than the single-panel though both can be used in the workplace.
There is availability of strip and cup forms that makes the multi-panel drug test more convenient. There is reduction in the inconvenience of handling the sample in the multi-panel drug test which makes it more convenient. The sample is collected in a cup that has a closed lid and the test card is attached to the cup itself so that when one peels off the label, the results can be read. In terms of value for money and efficiency, the multi-panel drug test kit is advantaged. They can test more than one drug hence an individual is less likely to escape from the test as they are designed to test commonly the abused drugs. The multi-panel drug test kits are more economical as they can test many drugs at a time even though the cost of buying such a kit is higher.
The split key cup check, the temperature check and the adulteration check are the advanced options in the multi-panel drug test kit. By using the key cup, the sample only comes in to contact with the test part only when the key is inserted hence making the process more convenient. In order to ensure that the results are not adulterated, the temperature check and the adulteration check will check the right temperature and the PH and the oxidant in the urine sample consequently.
