Why Use A 10-Panel Drug Test?
Depending on your reason for testing, you may require a drug test that can screen for a spectrum of substances.
In many cases, employers have a strict screening policy that requires them to check for a specific list of drugs. On the other hand, healthcare professionals may want to rule out any and all substances to gain a better understanding of the symptoms their patients are experiencing.
Whatever the motive, a 10 panel drug test is a suitable option for clients who require across-the-board screening capabilities.
What is a 10 panel drug test?
A 10 panel drug test is a type of immunoassay screen that uses antibodies to detect the presence of drugs in the body.
Tests with 10 drug panels can be conducted by collecting a range of DNA samples, from urine and saliva, to hair follicles and blood.
What does a 10 panel drug test test for?
Please see the list below for a complete breakdown of the substances a 10 panel drug test can detect in the human body:
- Marijuana (Cannabis, Hash, Synthetic Cannabis)
- Cocaine (Powder, Crack Cocaine)
- Amphetamines (Speed, Crystal Meth, Ritalin, Adderall)
- Opioids (Heroin, Opium, Codeine, Morphine)
- Barbiturates (Amobarbital, Pentobarbital, Phenobarbital)
- Benzodiazepines (Ativan, Librium, Xanax, Valium)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
- Methaqualone (Quaaludes)
- Propoxyphene (Darvon)
It’s important to note that a 10 panel drug test does not screen for alcohol.
How does a 10 panel drug test work?
When drugs enter the human body, our immune systems react, producing antibodies to protect us from the new foreign substance. Panel 10 drug tests are able to identify the presence of these antibodies in a DNA sample, informing the test administrator whether or not the patient is positive for the drug.
The Benefits of Point of Care (POC) Tests
At Countrywide Testing, we specialize in the sale of POC tests. This allows our clients to administer drug tests without having to visit a clinic or healthcare facility where blood can be collected.
Some of the advantages associated with POC tests include:
POC tests can be conducted just about anywhere— on a job site, in an office, at a police station, etc. For this reason, 10 panel urine drug tests, as well as saliva drug tests, are a preferred screening method for many government agencies, healthcare providers, and other organizations.
Another major benefit of 10 panel urine tests is how quickly they can be processed. Typically, results are available in less than five minutes. This is particularly useful for clients who need to screen multiple people in a given timeframe, or who need accurate test results promptly in order to provide medical care.
Less Room for Error
When blood samples are tested in laboratory facilities, there are multiple steps that must be completed in order to prepare and process the sample. Because the process is more complex, it can often leave more room for errors. One misstep and the results of the test could be compromised. With POC tests, however, the process is straightforward— the sample is collected, and the testing occurs immediately, without any need to prepare the sample or use advanced equipment to obtain a result.
