Instant Drug Testing

If you need drug test results immediately, call Truth DNA Diagnostics. Most of our locations are able to perform immediate drug testing, with negative same-day results. Instant drug testing is available for employers and personal drug testing. Sometimes an instant drug test may need further confirmation at one of our laboratories. The specimen will be tested and the results will be reviewed by an MRO and reported to you.


Point-of-collection testing (POCT) drug testing, commonly referred to as instant testing or rapid testing, is the perfect solution for situations that require drug test results within minutes! Save time and money, make faster hiring decisions, and improve your overall program efficiency with instant testing provided at more than 20,000 Truth DNA Diagnostics locations nationwide.

How Instant Drug Testing Works


Employers often use instant drug testing for pre-employment and random employee drug testing. Instant testing provides rapid, reliable drug screening results.

Instant drug testing is conducted at the collection facility where you will provide the specimen. Truth DNA Diagnostics has all of the supplies needed to complete the instant test, making testing a breeze!

The drug testing collector will process an initial screen using an instant test device. Once complete, the collector will allow the device to process, and after a short period, they will then read the initial specimen results. Specimens that are clear of any illicit substance and pass the initial test will be recorded as ‘Negative’ and are reported back to the employer the same day!

Approximately five percent (5%) of the time, the initial instant urine drug test will be inconclusive and require further testing. In that case, the collector will package up the specimen, in the presence of the donor, fill out a chain-of-custody form and send the specimen out for Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) confirmation testing at our SAMHSA certified laboratory. The confirmation testing process typically takes 48-72 hours. All laboratory-confirmed drug test results are first reported to a Medical Review Officer (MRO) to verify the results before reporting them to the employer, to better limit an employer’s exposure to any liability in the drug testing process.

Instant Drug Testing is not available or approved for federally regulated or U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) drug testing programs
