What is a 12-Panel Drug Screen?

12 Panel Drug Screen Tests

Drug testing does not need to be costly or complicated. There are many types of drug tests which provide fast, accurate results, from a one-panel drug test to a multi-panel test kit.

Urine drug testing begins as soon a sample is collected and the cup is activated by turning once. Results can be seen instantly through easy-to-read dark lines on the cup’s results panel.

What is a CLIA Waived Test?

If a test is CLIA Waived, it means results are 99.9% accurate and repeatable. CLIA Waived tests can be applied in private and professional settings. The most commonly used CLIA Waived configuration is "6125".
