1. Dependable Testing Methodology

Laboratory-based urine testing is time-tested, scientifically-proven, widely used, and applicable for all drug testing reasons. Hundreds of different panels, combinations of drugs, and cutoff levels are available. 

2. Approved for Federally Mandated Drug Testing

Urine testing is the only drug test type approved for federally mandated testing. To follow standardized procedures established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), urine test results are evaluated by a Medical Review Officer (MRO). Testing is performed for five substances (amphetamines, cannabinoids, cocaine, opiates and phencyclidine) in a required SAMHSA-certified lab. The Department of Transportation’s (DOT) rule, 49 CFR Part 40, describes required procedures for conducting workplace drug and alcohol testing for the federally regulated transportation industry.

3. Broad Testing Menu

Our lab-based urine drug tests can detect a broad range of illicit and prescription drugs including amphetamines, barbiturates, bath salts, benzodiazepines, cocaine, marijuana, synthetic cannabinoids, MDMA (Ecstasy) and its metabolite, methadone, opiates, oxycodones, phencyclidine (PCP), and propoxyphene.

4. Laboratory Expertise

Our laboratory certifications and accreditations lead the industry and include SAMHSA (urine), CAP-FDT (hair, oral fluid, and urine), Florida (hair and urine), and New York State (hair, oral fluid and urine). We perform thousands of workplace urine drug tests daily in a secure lab. Bottom line, when you partner with ALI you’re partnering with a leader in drug testing. 

5. Proven Legal Track Record

We have been performing urine testing for drug abuse for more than 25 years. From the beginning, we have stood behind every result that leaves our laboratory. Our results have successfully withstood legal challenges in workplace testing, military proceedings, and other civil jurisdictions. Our proven legal track record of success supports the fact that we provide reliable, accurate urine testing results that you can depend on.

6. Flexible Testing Options

We offer a broad range of drug screening options, including hair, urine, oral fluid, and instant testing. This allows you to combine other drug test types with your urine testing program to better meet your unique needs. Using a single, centralized provider for your entire drug testing program delivers several benefits including one point of contact, a consistent collection network, and a single bill to manage – just to name a few.

7. Unmatched Access

Our network of company owned and operated collection sites contains approximately 6,000 locations across the country, with additional locations around the globe. Trained collection site personnel deliver a convenient, consistent and professional experience that reduces employee downtime and improves donor satisfaction. In addition, our collection sites follow the standard operating procedures outlined by the DOT for urine drug screen collections.

8. Fast, Reliable Results

Our dependable turnaround times drive timely business decisions. Specimens go through a two-tiered testing process. The initial screening is performed on one portion of the specimen and is designed to rapidly isolate negative specimens from those that need additional testing to confirm the outcome. Negative results are often released within 24 hours where non-negative screens are typically released within an additional 24-72 hours.

9. Personal Service and Support

We pride ourselves in forming partnerships with our clients. We’ll work closely with you to develop a comprehensive screening program that we’ll support with our knowledgeable customer service representatives.
