Technology and Testing Methodology
Specializing in High-complexity confirmation testing, our panels include: Stimulants, Opiates, Synthetic Opioids, Benzodiazepines, Neuromodulatory, Substances of Abuse and an industry-leading Mental Health Medication Panel.
National Labs utilizes Liquid Chromatography & Triple Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS/MS) which is the highest standard of drug testing in the lab industry. Due to the advanced specificity of LC-MS/MS/MS, it is superior to immunoassays, conventional high performance pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) as well as gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
Our methodology eliminates the concept of "false positives” seen with point of care screens and enzyme immunoassay methods. Our LC-MS/MS/MS also decreases “false negatives” due to its lower cutoffs and greater specificity.
Robotic preparation of specimens ensure accuracy + precision. Our validated testing methods allow for increased efficiency in production, ensuring an industry-leading report turnaround time.

Drug of Abuse
Ensuring the health and safety of your patients, employees and community at large requires a complete and robust solution for fast COVID-19 screening.
To aid in the effort to combat the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, National Labs offers a full-service package that includes both front-end specimen collection as well as back-end testing support, all by a state-of-the-art lab using the most current technology and methods.
Partnering with counties, public health departments, hospitals, clinics, businesses, schools, and long term care facilities, we use the RT-PCR testing method under EUA (emergency use authorization) based on anterior nares, nasopharyngeal and saliva specimen types. We also look at 3 genetic markers, instead of just 2, which can capture known COVID variants while eliminating concern over false negatives.
National Labs COVID-19 testing services feature:
Average TAT of <24 hours post specimen receipt
Full service, onsite facility testing and specimen collection
RT-PCR testing methodology
EUA (emergency use authorization) testing validation
Anterior nares, nasopharyngeal and saliva specimen types
