How quick are the screen results?


Most “Point of Care” drug test devices/kits will give screen results within 5-10 minutes from activation. Sometimes negative results can be read in as little as 2 minutes. This time will vary due to sample type and also the drugs being tested for. The ITS range of urine drug testing and oral fluid drug testing products have strips and tests designed to run slower than others – this is normal and aids better quality results for that strip. The specific instructions indicate at what time “POC positive” results should be read and also over what time they should not be read.
