The main difference between , and Urine Drug Testing is the drug detection time lines. 

Oral fluid is able to detect current drug impairment; hair is able to detect a long history of drug use (typically 90 days); and a urine drug test is, for most drugs, able to detect drug use during the past week. 

THC (marijuana) is the one exception to this rule.  THC may be detected for several weeks after use in a donor's urine, depending upon frequency/quantity of use, body mass, height, and even gender.  For many companies and private individuals, a urine drug test provides the perfect time line for drug detection.  It will not penalize the donor for drug use in the distant past, and is still recent enough to indicate whether an employee has partaken in drug use within the past few days. 

We offer two options for urine drug testing.  The first is an express test.  The results of an express drug test are instant.  It is also important to note that the results of an express test are qualitative, meaning that the results are either a pass or fail, the level of drug in the body is not determined.

The second option is to do a lab based urine drug test.  This can be done in addition to the express test, or on its own.  This type of testing provides a  quantitative  result, meaning that the levels of drugs in the body can be determined.
Lab results are generally available within 2-5 business days.  SureHire utilizes the services of Maxxam Analytics for all lab based urine testing.
