Drug Testing

Triangle Molecular Toxicology’s mission is to offer accurate, fast, and comprehensive drug testing to our nationwide partners. Our lab services a variety of tests which include, urine, blood, blood spot, and plasma testing. Treatment providers are able to create appropriate and timely treatment plans because of our wide drug testing panels. Detox centers, addiction treatment centers, and pain management clinics are provided the results they need because of Triangle Molecular Toxicology’s expansive drug testing menu which consists of over 60 individual analytes.


Drug Testing



Our lab specializes in urine analysis because of several different factors.
  • Urine drug testing devices allow for tests to be made for a comprehensive range of substances in a quick and precise manner. We test for several different substances which include, but are not limited to, alcohol, opioids, amphetamines, THC, fentanyl, and more.
  • Urine samples are convenient for several different institutions which include pain management clinics, addiction treatment centers, and detox centers. The collection is quick and the samples are sent to Triangle Molecular Toxicology with care. Our team will then use their years of experience in immunoassay methods and mass spectrometry analysis to provide state of the art drug monitoring solutions. Triangle Molecular Toxicology’s expert scientists test urine samples using first-rate techniques.
Why choose urine testing?


  • Triangle Molecular Toxicology is here to service urine tests with turn around times of about 48-72 hours. Speedy results mean that addiction treatment centers, clinics, and detox centers can kick start your care plan faster.


  • Urine tests are convenient in collection, testing, and transportation meaning that they are the most affordable and accurate option available for several medical servicers.


  • Triangle Molecular Toxicology’s specialized team performs drug tests with utmost care by using Enzyme Immunoassay and Advanced Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry tests to create accurate, trustworthy results. Additionally, our scientists work around adulteration methods by using pH, creatinine, specific gravity, and oxidant screening. These tests will reveal faulty samples and ensure that accurate results are being sent to treatment facilities.


  • Urine testing can detect a variety of more than 60 analytes in samples because of Triangle Molecular Toxicology’s state of the art equipment. This allows for flexibility, convenience, and speed when it comes to test results for our nationwide partners.

Adulterated Samples

Triangle Molecular Toxicology is constantly working to ensure that testing is accurate to provide the best care for our partners. Adulteration is the first thing we test for in our labs to ensure that results best represent true values. As a CLIA Certified and COLA Accredited Clinical Reference Toxicology Laboratory, Triangle Molecular Toxicology uses extensive testing for adulteration with the use of Advanced Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) run by our expert scientists.

Unfortunately, adulteration is a common issue with drug testing in certain settings like addiction treatment centers, pain management clinics, and alcohol detox centers where there is a higher chance for positive test results. Adulteration is the manipulation of a sample to show a negative result despite the donor being positive through chemicals and flushing. Triangle Molecular Toxicology is dedicated to confirming sample authenticity and has several kinds of preliminary tests in place to ensure that adulteration is caught.


Adulterated Samples




Creatinine levels tend to be around 20-300 mg/dL in valid urine samples, but when someone tries to “flush” out their system, their creatinine levels will be manipulated too. Additionally, creatinine levels are different in different organisms, so any sample below 5 mg/dL is not a human sample.


Healthy pH levels in adults fall between 3-11. Outside of this range, the sample could indicate tampering and dilution.




Specific Gravity

Specific Gravity

Urine has a distinct specific gravity. When substances or water are added to these samples, the specific gravity will fluctuate outside of the normal range for urine. This test indicates if a sample has been diluted or tampered with.


Oxidants aren’t regularly found in urine, but we test for them because many commercial adulterants use oxidants to get rid of select substances from urine samples. This kind of tampering will be revealed through an oxidant test and flagged as an invalid sample.
