What are Test Panels?

Test panels are predefined combinations of drugs or substances tested for in a single test. These panels streamline the testing process by grouping drugs that are commonly tested for based on specific criteria, such as the type of drugs, the purpose of the test, or regulatory requirements.

Test panels vary in size and composition, from basic panels that test for a few common drugs to comprehensive panels that test for a wide range of drugs and substances.

Difference between 5, 10, and 12-panel tests:

  • 5-panel drug tests typically include tests for five common drugs: cocaine, marijuana (THC), amphetamines, opiates, and phencyclidine (PCP).
  • 10-panel drug tests expand on this by adding tests for additional drugs such as barbiturates, benzodiazepines, methamphetamine, methadone, and ecstasy (MDMA).
  • 12-panel drug tests typically include screening for buprenorphine and oxycodone. These additional drugs are commonly used prescription medications with a potential for abuse or addiction.

Other substances that can be tested for include methaqualone, propoxyphene, nicotine, synthetic marijuana (K2), tramadol, tricyclic antidepressants (TCA), fentanyl, and bath salts.

The selection of a test panel depends on the needs of the testing program or the requirements of the individual or organization conducting the test.

Quick Turnaround Times

In most cases, results are available immediately. However, for any non-negative results (indicating the presence of drugs), we recommend further testing in our GC/MS-accredited laboratory. These tests are highly sensitive and can be influenced by various factors. All non-negative results should be reviewed by a certified medical review officer (MRO).

How to Prepare for a Lab Panel Test

Preparing for a lab panel test is straightforward.

Follow these simple steps to ensure the most accurate results:

  • Bring a valid ID to the testing facility.
  • Avoid consuming large amounts of liquids before the test to prevent dilution.
  • Inform the lab personnel of any prescription medications you are taking.
  • Refrain from using over-the-counter medications that may cause false positives.
  • Follow any additional instructions provided by the testing facility.
