While on-site rapid testing does assist in the immediate detection of a class of drugs, it does not offer an accurate identification of the exact medication nor the concentration. In some circumstances, the cutoff levels of a rapid test are way too high to detect the presence of a drug and therefore may provide a false negative to you which leads to prescription liability.
It is for these reasons that ACS and CLIA stress the importance of confirming your patients compliance through the highest and most accurate method for detection.
ACS delivers the highest complexity and most accurate lab service available in the market today. We not only identify the specific medication/drug, we also provide the metabolized concentration to paint a more accurate picture of your patients compliance and your confidence while prescribing.
