Mobile or Job-Site Testing
The hidden costs sending employees to an off-site facility for specimen collections can be costly due to lost time and lost productivity. Further, if employees are sent to an occupational health clinic, employees are then exposed to other sick patients and long wait times.
Our mobile services consist of having our collector(s) conduct testing at your place of business for testing or utilize our RVs with self contained units, offering a private and secure restroom for providing specimen collections.
If you are not local to our office location, we can arrange for on-site collections throughout most of the country.
Simply call us and we’ll come to you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whether your employees are in an office building, manufacturing facility, or even a remote job site like an oil rig or construction site.
Hair and Rapid/Instant Oral Testing
Employers can create a safer workplace by using oral/urine instant fluid testing as an alternative to lab-based urine testing. Our rapid/instant testing products are easy to use and can be used for testing at the employment site or in the privacy of your home. This flexibility provides options that can suit most testing situations.Instant drug testing results testing eliminates the logistics and reporting delays that may occur with laboratory-based drug testing. Oral Fluid Testing provides an option for detecting recent usage. Results are instant or results may be sent to a laboratory for confirmation when non-negative. Sample collection is non- invasive and requires no special facilities, with oral fluid samples being swabbed directly from the mouth. Oral fluid samples are difficult to adulterate or substitute.
Hair and Instant Urine and Oral testing have some advantages over traditional, urine-based drug testing programs. These include:
- Reduced opportunity for donor adulteration, substitution, or dilution
- Collections are safe & simple
- No shipping of bodily fluids
- Eased burden of observed collections
- Testing for both long-term lifestyle choices & recent usage
Accurate’s collector will perform an initial screen using an instant test device. Once complete, the collector will allow the device to process, and after a short period, the initial specimen results will be read. Specimens that pass the initial screening test will be recorded as ‘Negative’ and reported the same day! A very small percentage of initial instant urine drug test will be inconclusive and require further testing. The collector will complete a a chain-of-custody form in the presence of the donor collector, then will package the specimen for shipment to our SAMHSA (DHHS) certified laboratory partner for confirmatory testing utilizing Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) for confirmation testing. All laboratory-confirmed drug test results are first reported to a Medical Review Officer (MRO) to verify the results before reporting them to an employer.

Employers regulated by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) are required under Homeland Security regulations to maintain a drug and alcohol testing program to promote a drug-free and safe work environment for the safe passage of embarked passengers and for carriage of cargo on U.S. waterways. The marine employer must develop a program that serves as a strong deterrent to the illegal use of controlled substances by covered crewmembers, and that promotes a safe, drug-free workplace.
Those applying for a Captains license or other merchant mariner credentials need initial drug test and periodic drug testing every two years. Accurate follows all requirements and has been trusted USCG testing partner with a thorough understanding of these requirements. Trust us to be your partner for all USCG testing.

Accurate assists our clients with maintaining 100% compliance with court-ordered drug and/or alcohol testing.

We can setup individual random selection profiles utilizing an interactive voice response (IVR) system for random selections which allows testing as frequently as required. We may also offer additional services based on your unique requirements.
Personal Drug Testing
We offer rapid instant test results which typically provide results within 5 to 15 minutes. You may also prefer the standard laboratory-based urine drug test. Results are received typically within 24-48 hours. We can perform the instant test or provide instructions to allow you to perform testing in the privacy of your home. These tests are oftentimes used to self-test, test a family member, test prior to taking a test for a future employer or simply prove to a loved one that you are free of drug or alcohol use.
EtG Urine Drug Testing
The presence of EtG in urine is an indicator that ethanol was ingested. It can be detected in urine for up to 80 hours after ingestion. This type of test has become very popular for zero-tolerance and abstinence programs.
EtG Alcohol Hair Test
EtG alcohol hair testing generally is an indicator of a behavioral issue, or pattern of use rather than current impairment. It measures average alcohol consumption over a period of approximately three months to provide informatin on the level of alcohol use during that time period. The test measures the amount of ethyl glucuronide (EtG) in the hair – a trace metabolite of ethanol and a direct alcohol biomarker. This type of hair testing is suitable for:
- Monitoring alcohol abstinence for probation programs
- Court-ordered cases
- Child custody cases
- Drug court cases
- DWI cases
- Other situations where the person is absolutely prohibited from consuming any alcohol
Breath Alcohol Testing
Employer workplace testing most commonly utilizes breath alcohol testing to determine current impairment. Here’s how this test works. When alcohol is ingested and reaches your stomach it is absorbed into your blood and carried throughout your body, including your lungs. Alcohol is eventually exhaled through the breath. Ultimately, this test measures how much alcohol is in a person’s breath, therefore indirectly measuring how much alcohol is in a person’s blood, known as their blood alcohol content or blood alcohol concentration (BAC). These tests are performed by our certified and trained breath alcohol technicians (BAT) using an Evidential Breath Testing (EBT) device approved by NHTSA.
Breath alcohol tests are suitable for:
- Personal uses
- Legal uses (probation, child custody, etc.)
- DOT-regulated businesses and individuals
- DOT-regulated employers must use breath alcohol testing for compliance with DOT alcohol testing requirements.
