When companies and organisations arrange their on-site drug testing programs, one of the first matters at hand, is to work out a schedule for the different types of drug tests they intend to administer. Moreover, they will need to decide whether or not they want to use workplace saliva or urine tests (both of which can be easily administered by a responsible, dedicated member of staff, who has has some practice administering the tests on several people, before the first mass testing).

Drug Testing Kits UK's Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) (also known as workplace or on-site testing), works on the non-invasive collecting of employees' salvia or urine, using CE approved testing kits which display highly accurate, almost instant results. In the event that an employee's results are positive, then the results displayed on the testing kit, should be sent off to a laboratory, which will confirm the results.

Different Types of On-Site Drug Testing

  • Periodic Workplace Drug Testing: regular scheduled drug tests which are announced to employees in advance of the due date. (This should form a condition of an agreed work contract)

  • Safety-Critical Industry Testing: examples include employees who work offshore, or who come to work in Britain or Southern Ireland, from overseas. (This should form a condition of an agreed work contract)

  • Pre-Employment Workplace Drug Testing: this frequently forms part of the recruitment process, especially in the case of particular industries (e.g. transportation). Being renowned as one of the UK's and Southern Ireland's foremost nationwide leaders in workplace drug testing, Drug Testing Kits UK is well aware that the tests employed at this stage, are CE approved saliva or urine testing kits

  • Immediate Response Workplace Drug Testing: this form of drug testing is used by various organisations, such as Network Rail. It is normally forms part of a random drug testing program

  • Random Workplace Drug Testing: countless businesses and organisations that are supplied by us here at Drug Testing Kits UK, employ random drug testing programs as an important element of their workplace health and safety policies, and safety culture. Random workplace drug testing serves as an excellent deterrent for catching out, and stopping employees who abuse drugs, and have no respect for the companies and organisations they work for

    How Drug Testing Kit UK's Drugs & Alcohol Rapid Self-Tests Work

    The Use of Calibrators

    A calibrator describes a standard (or agent) that is employed in order to guarantee accuracy. This rapid result, highly accurate, Drugs & Alcohol Test uses the following calibrators:




    • 11-nor-9-carboxy-THC




    (Note: these calibrators are listed in the same order to correspond with the aforementioned list of drugs that the 'The Drugs & Alcohol Self-Test Can Detect').

    The Use of Man-Made Proteins

    Known as monoclonal antibodies, these proteins selectively detect raised levels of many popular drugs which could be present in human oral fluid. This is achieved by using specific cut-off concentrations. These incorporate:

    • AMPHETMINES 50 ng/ml

    • COCAINE 20 ng/ml

    • OPIATES 25 ng/ml

    • MARIJUANA 12 ng/ml

    • BENZODIAZEPINES 10 ng/ml

    • KETAMINE 50ng/ml

    • ALCOHOL 0.2%
