In-House Lab Services
To give us complete quality-control of all processes involved, all of our drug testing services are provided by TASC employees. Our collection sites utilize visually observed, monitored collections, which are a critical component in a valid drug testing program. We document legal accountability with precise chain-of-custody procedures and strictly follow federal and state requirements for confidentiality.
All of our testing procedures adhere to the highest standards. We utilize a wide range of state-of-the-art testing methodologies, including initial screening by enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). All confirmatory testing is performed by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) and Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), which have high levels of specificity and sensitivity and are considered the “gold standard” for drug testing verification.
The TASC management and laboratory staff have decades of experience working within our organization. This experience and know-how translates to efficient and highly skilled operations throughout the company – which is then passed on to our customers.
