Urine Testing for Drug Use in the Workplace
ToxLogic Pty Ltd is a workplace drug and alcohol collection and testing service accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA).
The detection of drugs using urine is well established with the first version of the Australian Standard AS 4308 being released in 1995. The current version of this Standard (AS/NZS 4308: 2008) includes the requirements for on-site testing of a urine sample. This is the Standard against which NATA assesses a Collection Agency when that agency seeks accreditation for its operations.
Most drugs can be detected in urine for 1–3 days after use and cannabis metabolites can be detected for much longer (30 days or more) particularly with regular or heavy use.
ToxLogic is NATA accredited for on-site testing urine testing. We use the ProScreen Cup, which is a validated testing device under AS/NZS 4308: 2008. Any urine specimen which cannot be reported as Negative using the on-site testing device is sent to an accredited laboratory for further testing. Confirmed laboratory results are usually available within 48 hours.
