Are “Point of Care” drug test devices/kits results reliable?


If you choose a high quality device/kit such as the ITS range of point of care drug testing solutions, and you follow the instructions for use – then yes. Point of Care drug testing must be carried out correctly to maintain cost/time efficiency and to ensure accurate results. Our helpful short videos demonstrate the process from start to finish. This is a fairly straightforward process and there are only a few stages that can affect the quality of results. A “positive” screen test result (either via a laboratory or a “Point of Care” drug test device/kit) does not always mean that a person took illegal/legal/prescription drugs and a negative test does not always mean that a person did not take illegal/legal/prescription drugs; there are several factors that influence the reliability of the test results. There is a possibility that other substances and/or factors may interfere with the test and cause incorrect test results.
