Instant Drug Testing in Dallas
Instant drug testing is commonly called point of collection testing or on site testing. This type of test gives negative results same day as test; the actual testing is conducted at the facility where you give the specimen. There is a great advantage with onsite instant testing as you get a negative result the same day as you provide the specimen for testing. Pre-employment drug testing, court ordered drug testing, drug tests for probation, child custody cases, random drug testing, and testing teenagers are all situations in which point of collection could be beneficial.
