What's the difference between a 5 panel and 10 panel drug test?

Basic 5 – Panel Urine Lab Test

  1. Amphetamines
  2. Cocaine Metabolites
  3. Marijuana Metabolites (THC)
  4. Opiates
  5. Phencyclidine (PCP)
Basic 10 – Panel Urine Lab Test
  1. Amphetamines
  2. Cocaine Metabolites
  3. Marijuana Metabolites (THC)
  4. Opiates
  5. Phencyclidine (PCP)
  6. Barbiturates
  7. Benzodiazepines
  8. Methadone
  9. Methaqualone
  10. Propoxyphene
There isn’t really a universal definition of a panel drug test, however. Many organizations will implement a 4 panel drug test, a 7 panel drug test, or a 12 panel drug test. For example, some organizations will remove marijuana from a 5 panel test and implement a simpler 4 panel drug test. Alternatively, employers can add any number of drug classes to their testing panels. Some employers require a total toxicology screen, which can detect more than 20 drugs and/or drug metabolites. Ultimately, it’s about making sure an employee screening process matches the needs of the organization.]]>
