The tragic opioid epidemic is in the news daily but how does this affect your workplace? As technology continues to improve, obtaining drug testing results has become more simple and faster. With that said, One Source offers a variety of drug testing services through Alere eScreen.

We continuously seek out additional services to better meet the needs of our clients. Whether you would like to run an instant, five-panel drug test or know if your applicant (or employee) is partaking in prescription drug use without doctors consent, One Source is able to accommodate.

The xCup® allows you to electronically screen up to ten commonly abused prescription and illicit drugs. With the rise of opioid misuse and abuse, the xCup product directly detects opiates/morphine and the prescription drug oxycodone. It provides you with the immediacy of rapid, point-of-care drug screening with the consistency of an instrument read test.

This means no waiting for the results of negative tests at the lab and reduces the risk of specimens lost in transit to quickly move your applicants through the drug testing process.

A standard five-panel drug test includes Amphetamines, Cocaine, Marijuana, Opiates & Phencyclidine (PCP). One Source also offers a four-panel test option in states that all THC usage. xCup allows the addition of testing for the Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Oxycodone, Methadone & Methamphetamine.
