How Drug Testing Works

Whenever a substance is taken, the body eventually breaks it down and releases byproducts known as metabolites, which are excreted through the urine. The process of metabolizing is highly predictable.  Everyone metabolizes drugs at about the same rate, so the presence of these metabolites is a reliable indication that the tester has recently taken that substance.

This test is a urine test which offers many benefits over other types of drug testing. Blood tests, for example, are inferior to urine tests when it comes to drug testing. This is because urine tests are non-invasive, painless, and have a longer detection period for drugs (before the drug metabolites leave the body). Hair tests do have much longer detection periods but also cost roughly 3-4 times as much.

Drug Detection Testing Windows

Each drug takes a certain amount of time before it becomes undetectable, with some drugs taking longer than others to completely leave the body. Dosage, types of samples, and individual metabolisms can affect the detection time as well. Because drugs become undetectable after a certain amount of time, drug tests are often ordered at random. The following are the approximate amounts of time that substances can be detected.

  • 6-acetyl morphine (6-am) – 1-2 days
  • Amphetamines – 1-2 days, depending on type.
  • Barbiturates – short to intermediate-acting barbiturates; 2 days. Long-acting; 1-3 weeks.
  • Benzodiazepines – short-acting; 2 days, intermediate-acting; 5 days, long-acting; 10 days.
  • Cocaine (benzoylecgonine metabolite) – 4 days.
  • Marijuana (thc) – depends on usage. A single use can be detected for up to 7 days, while an everyday user can be positive between 10-30 days.
  • Mdma (ecstasy/molly) – 1-3 days.
  • Methadone – 7 days.
  • Methaqualone (quaaludes) – 2-4 days
  • Opiates – 1-4 days.
  • Phencyclidine (pcp) – 8 days
  • Propoxyphene – 6 hours to 2 days.

How to prepare and what to expect

Those who are taking this test in San Antonio should not drink excessive liquids before providing the urine sample. Some believe that drinking large amounts of water before a urine drug test can hide or reduce the chances of a positive result, but all this will do is risk an invalidation. An official id card will be needed.

When at your selected lab, the lab technician who is responsible for performing the drug test will provide you with instructions. The process is quite simple, as you will be asked to use the restroom and provide a urine sample in a container.

Hair Follicle Drug Test San Antonio

The benefits of a hair follicle collection.

Court admissible

Hair follicle testing is the only drug testing method that goes back up to 90 days’ of use history. When compared with urine, hair provided nearly twice the number of positives due to its longer detection window. This makes hair follicle testing from Oracle an ideal solution for a number of drug testing programs. While urine is well suited to detect recent drug use for post accident or reasonable suspicion. Hair is the most effective way to evaluate long term patterns of use, making it the best option.  It’s easy and convenient collections process that can be done anywhere.

Full view collection for a tamper proof specimen

The collector obtains a 100-milligram sample of hair (90 to 120 strands) cut at the scalp.(about a straw size ) the hair collection is cut as to the scalp on the crown on the back of the donors head so only the strands of hair above the scalp are tested and not the actual hair follicle. The collector secures the hair sample in foil and completes chain of custody documentation in preparation for shipment to the laboratory. Since hair samples are obtained in full view of the collector, the process minimizes the likelihood of sample adulteration or specimen substitution.

Fast reliable results

Our collections are sent from San Antonio by overnight FEDEX and testing begins on the following day. We know how important these results are to you and ensure that are completed in a timely manner

A longer detection window

The window of detection also varies based on the amount of hair follicles tested. Although longer samples of hair can be tested for exposure over a longer period of time, a standard sample of hair from the scalp is 1.5 inches and provides information about approximately 90 days of past exposure. While use and misuse may not appear in the hair until 7 to 10 days after exposure, once it enters the hair follicle, it remains for weeks, months, or even years.

Alcohol Tests

We offer the following types of alcohol tests:

  • Breath alcohol
  • EtG urine drug screening

Certified breathalyzer screening with instant results

Breath alcohol tests offer a simple way to instantly determine the amount of alcohol currently present in an individual’s bloodstream. Using a breathalyzer, our certified breath alcohol technicians can accurately analyze the presence of alcohol in someone’s system, and provide reliable results, instantaneously. Whether you need to evaluate an individual for a post accident or simply wish to carry out a routine random alcohol test you can rely on Oracle Tech with 24 hour service on site or in office.

How does a breath alcohol test work?

When alcohol is consumed , the body begins the metabolic process to break down the alcohol entering the body. As the alcohol is metabolized, it passes though various organs and enter the blood stream. While most of the alcohol is eliminated via the kidneys and urine, a small percentage leaves the body through the lungs or breath. This small percentage directly correlates with the individual’s blood alcohol content, or bac. A breathalyzer is able to measure the drinker’s bac level and report it instantly.

Allow our trained and certified technicians get a clear view of an individual’s alcohol consumption. Whether it’s for yourself, a pre employment or a post accident we can help you every step of the way.
