Drug and Alcohol Testing
SCSI is a TPA (Third Party Administrator) for DOT random and computer-generated consortium programs. SCSI conducts (on-site or in-office) DOT and Non-DOT drug and alcohol testing for:
- Return to Duty
- Post Accident
- Reasonable Suspicion
- Follow Up
SCSI helps employers verify that employees, those being considered for employment, or employees suspected of working under the influence of drugs or alcohol, are substance free. Testing is also available to courts, school districts (for bus drivers & student athletes), parents, and individuals. SCSI assists you in determining which type of testing is most effective for your particular needs. Valid proof of identification (Photo ID) is required when testing is performed; those under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian with them (with valid proof of ID) before testing is conducted. No appointment is necessary during regular office hours, Monday thru Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM.
Hair growth is fed by the bloodstream, the ingestion of drugs of abuse is revealed by analyzing a small sample of hair. Our testing method measures the drug molecules embedded inside the hair shaft, eliminating external contamination. Hair testing results cannot be altered with shampoos or other external chemicals.
A standard hair sample test (head hair) covers a period of approximately 90 days. The hair sample is cut as close to the scalp as possible and the most recent 1.5 inches are tested. It takes approximately 2 weeks from the time of the drug use for the affected hair to grow above the scalp. Body hair can also be collected, which can go back as far as a year.
Urine Drug Testing
Rapid/instant testing - 10 and 12 panel which produce results within three to five minutes of the collection.
Lab-based testing panels which produce confirmatory results within 24 to 72 hours of collection.
Medical Review Officer (MRO) validation of prescription medicine is required & included for DOT testing, and also available for non-DOT testing for additional fee.
In addition to the typical testing for illegal drug and prescription medications, urinalysis lab-based testing is available for these special types of specific substances not included in a regular testing panel:
- K2 Spice/Bath Salts
- Others available upon request
Breath Alcohol Testing
This method of alcohol testing is the same technology used by most law enforcement agencies producing instant results. Our testing device automatically collects a breath sample, presents it to the fuel sensor for analysis and is broken down chemically. The outcome is converted to a digital breath alcohol concentration valve and is printed out. If alcohol is detected, the machine automatically goes into a 15-minute confirmation status.
DNA Relationship Testing
A DNA paternity test compares a child's DNA profile with that of the possible father to determine if there is a direct match.
