Toxicology

Genesis Laboratory Management, LLC specializes in comprehensive drug testing, a tool that provides information to assist physicians in diagnostic and therapeutic drug monitoring. Our scientists and technical staff include some of the most experienced teams in the country. This process is called toxicology. Through these tests, we are able to monitor therapeutic drugs, pain management drugs, and detect drug abuse. Our tests provide physicians with the ability to see whether their patient needs more or less of a certain therapeutic drug.

 

Through urine samples, our tests confirm recent use of prescription and non-prescription medications, along with illicit substances. We are able to identify possible abuse of medications through these tools. Toxicology begins with the Immunoassay Screening. This test is highly regarded in the industry. It allows us to detect adulterants – which is when patients attempt to sway test results by tampering their samples. After the initial screening, we confirm the results with Ultra Performance Liquid Chromatography and Tandem Spectrometer (UPLC-MS/MS).

 

Our teams provide fast, secure, hassle-free specimen pickups and personally deliver customized test panels, reports, and drug information within a 48-hour turnaround time.
