For How Long Can Drugs Be Detected Using a 5 Panel Drug Test?

The 5 Panel Drug Screen from Zoom Testing is one of our most popular multi-drug test kits and has been designed to detect the use of 5 of the most commonly used drugs of abuse in the UK. These drugs are Amphetamines, Cannabis, Cocaine, Heroin (Opiates/Morphine) and Methamphetamines.

Drug Detection Times – 5 Panel Urine Drug Tests

This drug screen has been developed to detect the presence of dugs in urine. A urine drug test is often used instead of a saliva drug test as this type of test allows drugs to be detected over a longer period of time. Generally we would expect the drug test to be able to detect the presence of drugs within the following time frames:

Amphetamines
The use of amphetamines can be detected in urine within hours of using the drug and possibly up to 2 – 4 days after use. The exact limit on drug detection times very much depends on the physical attributes of the individual and the amount of use of the drug over time.

Cannabis
A urine drug test for cannabis will detect THC, which is the primary active ingredient in cannabis. Drug detection times for Cannabis vary from within a few hours of use to up to 15 – 30 days after use (depending on the individual and amount of use). A urine test for cannabis is fastest and most inexpensive way to test for cannabis use, providing results you can trust within five minutes.

Cocaine
Cocaine itself is only detectable in urine for a number of hours after usage. However, benzoylecgonine, the hydrolytic degradation product of cocaine,can be detected in urine for up to 14 days. Drug detections times here are sometimes even longer.

Heroin (Opiates/Morphine)
Opiate refers to any drug that is derived from the opium poppy, including the natural products, morphine and codeine, and the semi-synthetic drugs such as heroin. Opiates are normally detectable in urine for 3 – 5 days from usage.,

Methamphetamines
Drug detection times for Methampheramine are generally 3 – 5 days from consumption, depending on urine pH level.
