10 Panel Drug Screen - More Information
The 10 panel drug test, also known as a ten panel urine drug screen and a urine 10 panel test, checks for drug urine levels for ten different drugs.
Frequently used as a screening tool prior to a new job or entrance in a new school, the ten panel urine drug test helps identify recent exposures to these drugs. This 10 panel drug screen checks for three additional drugs - methadone, phencyclidine or propoxyphene - when compared to the 7 panel drug test.
Recent exposure increases the likelihood that someone will test positive on this 10 panel urine drug test. As such, most people who used a drug in this urine drug panel years ago will not test positive unless they were somehow exposed recently. This test does not run a confirmatory test if a specific drug comes back positive but it is highly accurate which, in most circumstances, makes that unnecessary.
One common drug tested in this 10 panel drug test is amphetamines which forms the basis for Adderall. Adderall and its counterpart Myadis stimulate the nervous system and are used in treating ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Adderall works by increasing the activity of specific neurotransmitters in the brain. Adderall also has been used recreationally to improve cognition, athletic performance and one's general sense of wellness.
As can be noted from the description, this 10 panel drug test does not test for alcohol metabolites like the EtG test does. Additionally, it does not test for metabolites that might result from smoking tobacco as the cotinine test does. For people specifically looking for a more sensitive screen for the presence of marijuana, the marijuana metabolites test is a better choice.
It is also helpful to know that this lab test is not considered a chain of custody test, during which specific drug testing protocols are utilized to reduce the likelihood that someone can cheat on the drug test. Chain of custody drug tests are used in specific settings like getting a special truck driver license to ensure that people meet compliance requirements. Our 10 panel drug test meets the needs of people or companies who need more general or routine screening for themselves or for new employees. If you represent a company or organization in need of 10 panel drug testing, you should consider setting up a drug testing account.
