Our staff is here to help you more effectively gauge your needs. Just a few of the factors we’ll consider when you work with our team include:
- What is Drugs are being Tested?

Our staff follows strict chain-of-custody procedures and proper collection practices. This means your specimen integrity is intact and carefully-tracked every step of its journey to completion.

Drug testing can be performed even if the test subject didn’t personally engage in use. Using our Passive Exposure Drug Testing methods, we can detect if someone’s been around drug use. This often plays an important role in ensuring the safety and security of children exposed to risky behavior.
Test Smartly Labs keeps up-to-date on the latest teen drug trends. We strive to work together with parents and schools to ensure our kids stay on a positive course. The drugs we are seeing with this group vary from others. For example, we see Prescription Drug usage along with Synthetic or Designer Drugs like K2, Bath Salts and Opioids. We can also test athletes for steroid use.
If you just need to test for the most commonly-abused drugs, we’re here to help you devise a testing plan to reduce the occurrences of use of those substances which tend to pose the most risk locally.
Our staff proudly partners with area physicians to crack down on the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs. The Opioid problem in the United States is continuing to grow more serious, and we go beyond common Instant Screens or 5-Panel Drug Tests.
