Lab Services Q & A

Why would I need lab services?

If you’re a medical professional, you can use drug test results from a toxicology lab like CLS Diagnostics to monitor the levels of prescription drugs in patients at risk from opioid abuse, and make sure patients with substance abuse and addiction problems are following their rehabilitation programs.

Enzyme immunoassay (EIA) testing identifies any abuse of prescription drugs or illegal substances, which is then confirmed and further defined by analysis using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).

LC-MS/MS analysis provides precise information on any prescription drug or illegal substance found in the urine sample, detecting, identifying, and providing accurate quantification of any pharmacological contaminant in the sample in the shortest possible time.

What lab services are available?

CLS Diagnostics specializes in carrying out and analyzing toxicological test results, providing an accurate and comprehensive service to medical professionals wishing to conduct drug screening tests.

What equipment does a lab use to test samples?

Drug screening tests are performed using immunoassay technology, chemical tests that identify and measure specific analytes in bodily fluids. CLS Diagnostics uses enzyme immunoassay, which is ideal for drug screening as it can identify the presence of minute amounts of the target substance.

If the enzyme immunoassay test is positive, the sample is tested again with liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. CLS Diagnostics uses the groundbreaking Sciex liquid chromatography-mass spectrometer (LC-MS), which enables the toxicologists to analyze samples with extraordinary precision.
