We’re probably all familiar with toxicology testing when it’s applied to sports superstars. But such testing plays a big role in other areas as well. Take business, for example. Many organizations have policies that insure a drug-free workplace for their employees. Testing urine samples is a regular part of the program for such businesses, as does the screening of job applicants to insure that, if employed, they will be drug-free. Drug and alcohol treatment centers also need to know just how effectively their therapies are working with long-term substance-abusers; often the most effective and quickest route to this information is through the taking of urine samples.
There are many roles for a toxicology lab such as Performance Laboratories in the medical field as well. General practitioners often require such testing to help diagnose patients and to monitor how a prescription drug is functioning in an individual’s system. Pain treatment centers, which may deal with a great host of medications on an experimental basis, must monitor how these drugs are interacting within their patients’ systems; rather than leave such experimentation to trial and error, they can more efficiently determine this through medication monitoring.
For one thing, it is relatively low-cost; the equipment and technology for carrying out the analysis are not expensive. Further, supplying a urine sample is much less invasive for the patient than having to endure the drawing of blood, for example; the quantity of the sample is also rarely a problem when urine is involved. And the accuracy of urine samples is high. Chemicals found in urine tend to be more highly concentrated and more stable than those in blood or saliva samples, and can be analyzed with less effort because urine does not regularly contain protein or cellular bodies. A number of drugs remain in the urine for a relatively long time, some up to sixty days. Add to these advantages the fact that urine samples can easily be stored through refrigeration or freezing, and remain valid for a longer time.
