But this two-step process takes time and money. For many employers, it simply isn't feasible to send every screening test off to the lab. So they rely on the high accuracy rates of instant tests - around 90% for positives and 85% for negatives according to experts. To maximise precision, responsible employers combine multiple methods. For example, conducting both urine and saliva tests. Urine has a longer detection window ideal for identifying habitual users. But saliva excels at pinpointing recent use, critical for ensuring workplace safety. This multi-pronged approach costs more upfront but provides robust data to make truly informed decisions. At the end of the day, investing in accurate drug testing protects employees, clients, and the company's reputation.
