DOT/NON-DOT DRUG TESTING
A D.O.T. drug screen is a screen that tests a specimen for five NIDA drugs. According to DOT regulations, all DOT drug screens must be reviewed by an MRO. REI features nationwide drug testing with Quest and Labcorp. A Non-DOT drug test is a drug screen not federally regulated by the department of transportation. REI recommends all non-negative presumptive positive results, whether DOT or NON be GC/MS confirmed by an HHS approved laboratory. As of December 1, 2011, the new Federal CCF will be required. It is strongly encouraged that employers and C/TPA's verify with their collection sites that they have the new Custody and Control Forms and are using them. November 30th, 2011 is the last day for use of the 2000 CCF. - DATIA Headquarters
A network of 11,000 collection centers is available in all 50 states. Simply click on Lab-Corp or Quest below and provide us with the zip code (s) of your job location.

MRO & Lab Services

The use of a Medical Review Officer (MRO) is essential to protect the interests of your company and the donor. All non-negative presumptive positive results are reviewed by one of our Certified MRO's. Our MRO's are certified through American Association of Medical Review Officers (AAMRO) and/or the Medical Review Officer Certification Council (MROCC). The Medical Review Officer (MRO) helps protect both the rights of the employee being tested and the employer requiring the testing. We have a number of Labs we can refer you for an account set-up.

Rapid-Exams, Inc. refers MRO/LAB services to employers, TPA's, clinics, and hospitals. All results are received electronically from the laboratories. These results are then reviewed by the MRO and the reported via e-mail, web site, fax, phone or mail.

The MRO Performs Four Main Functions

  • Receive lab reports from the laboratory (as governed by regulations.)
  • Review lab reports for integrity, authenticity, false negatives, and false positives.
  • Interpret lab results, including verification of lab positives.
  • Report lab reports to employers (as defined by rules and regulations.) webmaster@rapidexams.com

    Prop 203 Gives Medical Marijuana The Green Light
    Arizona Proposition 203, "a ballot measure asking the state's voters to legalize medical marijuana," just barely passed by less than .1% recently. This new law enables physicians to prescribe two and a half ounces of marijuana every two weeks to "patients with serious debilitating illnesses, including HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, Alzheimer's, Crohn's disease, cancer and multiple sclerosis. Patients who live more than 25 miles away from a licensed dispensary are allowed to grow up to 12 plants in their home as long as they have a permit and doctor's consent." Read the full story here.
    Question: Can you direct me to the procedures for a torn seal during a DOT Urine collection?

    Answer:

    Occasionally, the tamper-evident label/seal provided with the CCF will not properly adhere to the specimen bottle because of environmental conditions (e.g., moisture, temperature, specimen bottle material) or may be damaged or broken during the collection process. When this occurs, the collector should use the following corrective procedures:
    (a) If the seal is broken while being removed from the chain of custody form or during the application of the first seal on the primary bottle, the collector should transfer the information to a new CCF and use the seals from the second form.
    (b) If one seal is already in place on a bottle and the second seal is broken while being removed from the CCF or is broken during application on the second bottle or while the employee is initialing either seal, the collector should initiate a new CCF and provide an appropriate comment on the “Remarks” line in Step 5. The seals from the second CCF should be placed perpendicular to the original seals to avoid obscuring information on the original seals and must be initialed by the employee (both sets of employee initials should match). The collector should draw a line through the Specimen ID number and bar code (if present) on the original seals to ensure that the laboratory does not use that number for reporting the results. The collector should not pour the specimen into new bottles.
    (c) In both cases, the collector should ensure that all copies of the original (first) chain of custody form are destroyed or disposed of properly (e.g., shredded, torn into pieces). (DOT's Specimen Collection Guidelines)
