What is a 9-panel drug test?

23.9 million Americans use drugs, there is clearly a growing need for drug testing – and that’s where we can help. How the 9-panel drug test works Most 9-panel drug tests are urine analysis kits that let you see whether someone has drugs in their system or not. A urinalysis is one of the best ways to conduct a drug screen, because it’s usually very accurate. Some of the other testing methods, such as the cheek swab, are simply not as reliable Additionally, most of the drug urinalysis tests will have simple, easy to read results and you can also send them off to a laboratory for further analysis. Types of drugs tested A 9-panel drug test tests for the following types of drugs:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Phencyclidine
  • Opiates
  • Methamphetamine
  • Methadone
  • Amphetamine
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
These are all common types of drugs that are abused regularly. Why consider a 9-panel drug test on your employees? There are a variety of reasons that you should consider requesting employees at your workplace participate in a 9-panel drug test. First and foremost, you will find that people abuse a wide range of drugs. While marijuana is one of the most commonly abused drugs in the US, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t test for other drugs. When it comes down to it, this test really covers all of your bases. And as mentioned previously, drug use is currently a huge issue in America, and no employer should risk the consequences of making a bad hire.
