Where to buy drug testing kits UK

You can buy drug testing kits from UK Drug Testing

 

We are frequently asked by customers where they can buy a drug test kit locally. The answer to this question depends where you live in the UK.

Drug testing kits are very widely available to buy online in the UK, and have been available to buy online now for about 15 years. They are also available to buy over the counter  in some chemists and pharmacies in the UK, mainly in large cities where the demand is greater.

The most common drug testing kit to find available to buy from a chemist is a urine drug test kit, usually a multi panel drug test. The choice of which drugs you can test for are usually fairly limited, on a drug test that you buy from a chemist, and it will usually just test for the most common drugs such as cannabis, cocaine, opiates and ecstasy. Newer drugs like legal highs, spice and mephedrone will be unlikely to be tested for. It is unlikely that you will be able to purchase an oral fluid saliva swab drug test kit in a chemist.

For the most comprehensive choice of drug testing kits to buy you will need to shop online. UK Drug Testing is a leading UK supplier of urine and saliva drug testing kits and have been selling them online now for over 16 years. You will find a very comprehensive selection of test kits covering most drugs and available in multiple formats.

Workplace Drug Testing |Drug Testing Kits For Employers | Drug Testing FAQ’s

Most employers would rather consider a saliva drug testing kit to the more traditional urine collection and drug testing procedures for workplace drug testing, and there is no reason why a saliva drug test should not be used for most employment drug testing.

Pre-employment drug screening is a little different. Employers are looking to screen for a longer period than is obtainable with instant near patient saliva drug tests. Urine drug screening will extend the detection period to 3 to 5 days for most drug groups. This will pick up more recreational drug use than saliva drug testing. If the drug screen has been notified, then the majority of potential employees will avoid recreational drug use in the week before the medical. To effectively screen for recreational drug use in this situation, the notification to attend for medical screening should be minimal. Otherwise you are only screening for hardened regular or dependent drug users, and the range of drug membranes included in the screen, should best reflect this.

We are commonly asked what to include in the employment drug screen, as there is no HSE list or specific guidance on what drugs should be included in the drug test, and what can be ignored. Our advice is to include the range of common recreational drugs which can affect performance, namely Cannabis, Cocaine, Amphetamines (and Methamphetamines) and opiates. We also recommend Benzodiazepines should be part of occupational drug screening, as most sedative tranquilisers affect performance, as can sedatives taken as sleeping pills. These should certainly be included in HSE high risk occupational drug screens examples being machine operatives, line side certification, PSV, HGV etc.

It may be worth contacting your local drugs team and finding out which drug groups are prevalent in your local area. We have noticed that Ketamine has started to become increasingly prevalent over the last 12 months and causes problems in an employment setting, as it highly sedative. Ketamine is in fact a veterinary tranquiliser, which gives you some idea how sedative it is.  An increasing number of drug screens now include Ketamine, and we are being asked for drug testing kits that incorporate Ketamine now on a daily basis, although currently this option is only available in our urine drug testing kits.

SAMHSA have recently moved further in favour of saliva drug screening to become the first line method for federal employee testing in the US. This should see further developments in saliva drug screening with new drug test membrane options for saliva testing becoming available and a standardisation of the saliva drug cut off levels to enable direct brand comparison and greater covergence in testing results and quality.

Drug Test FAQ-Drug Testing False Positives

This is a frequently asked question

Question

The urine drug test is positive. Could this be a false positive ?

Answer

A genuine false positive on a urine drug test is in fact quite uncommon. The advances in drug testing membranes means that most of the test membranes are now very specific for the drug detected. There are some drugs that may produce a false positive on some of the drug test membranes.
