Frequently Asked Questions
Drug, Alcohol & DNA Testing FAQs - Concord
How Do I prepare for a lab test?
Many tests require that you fast for about 12 hour before the test. Some
other common lab test preparations include:
- Avoiding certain foods
- Not overeating the day before
- Not consuming alcohol or smoking for 8-12 hours before the test
- Not taking any vitamins
- Not taking some prescription medications
Requirements may vary depending on the lab test you're scheduled to take.
The first step should always be to go over the requirements with your physician.
What color should urine be for a drug test?
In an attempt to flush out evidence of drug use, many people will drink
a lot of water to dilute urine before a drug test. This will make urine
very pale yellow or even clear. It’s hard to know the exact color
your urine should be for dilution to occur.
In a lab, it won’t be paid attention to anyway, because dilution
is measured by the creatinine levels in the urine. If an employer sees
a negative dilute test, you’ll usually have to perform another one.
It’s really not anything you need to worry about unless you’re
being deliberate about drinking too much water; just drink the same amount
of water you usually do.
Does alcohol show up on a drug test?
Most Concord employers do not request that alcohol be tested for, but it
is often requested in scenarios such as workplace accidents. It does show
up in urine tests. The amount of time it is detectable in your urine is
usually from 12 - 48 hours.
Occasionally, alcohol from other sources will show up on drug tests and
give a false positive. That is why we recommend avoiding using hand sanitizer,
mouthwash, non-alcoholic beers, and anything else containing small amounts
of alcohol in the days leading up to your test.
Does a five panel drug test test for alcohol?
A five panel drug test, often used by employers, only tests for THC, amphetamines,
cocaine, PCP, and opiates. Sometimes employers will request alcohol tests
along with the five panel test, but it’s not as common.

Can you get a DNA test while pregnant?
The majority of DNA tests will not affect your pregnancy in any way. They
are completely safe and use your blood or saliva to sample your DNA or
There are certain tests that are invasive and pose a risk, and the risk
from these optional tests would be reviewed by your OB-GYN. Invasive DNA
tests include amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS). A discussion
with your Concord healthcare provider will help you determine if the risk
is worth the benefits.
Are Dna Tests Accurate?
DNA tests are normally over 99% accurate. Exceptions include home tests,
which many people have used to diagnose themselves, only to discover later
that the results were false. To ensure your DNA test is as accurate as
possible, have it conducted by a reputable lab.
