Accuracy - Accuracy - Accuracy
are three main versions of drug testing kits in
use: cassettes/pipettes, cups and dip-sticks. As
there are no requirements from the Therapeutic Goods
Administration (TGA), and most drug testing kits
look the same, selection of drug testing kits -
for workplace and other critical use - should be
based on FDA clearances and performance studies
in order to avoid "false negative" or
"false positive" test results. In the
various - and independent - performance studies
conducted, PBM LifeSign - AccuSign™ comes out top ranking in accuracy.
The most important quality of PBM LifeSign and PBM AccuSign™ is its sensitivity
to detect drugs which other panels may miss, implicating
that an employee may test negative with other drug
panels but positive with AccuTest and AccuSign™, which can be
an unpleasant surprise for a person arriving at
a (remote) work site employing AccuTest and AccuSign™. Likewise,
the costs and other consequences of having people
stood down, based on a "false positive"
drug screen, speaks for itself.
The assays are also available
as a single test for each of the drugs and nicotine. For
the various cut-off levels applied, see AccuTest and AccuSign™ Single.
