One of the most important decisions that needs to be made in a drug and alcohol test is deciding which lab will conduct the test. This decision will have an impact on every remaining step in the process, so it’s important to get this right.
The first thing you need to know is not all drug testing labs are the same. Although you may see them offering the same types of services, different labs have different approaches to their testing methods but also differ in terms of the credentials they boast.
Important criteria to distinguish between drug testing laboratories include their accreditation, participation in proficiency testing and the speed and cost of their service.
