In this quick guide, I’m going to tell you in just five minutes how you can pass any type of LabCorp drug test.
I’ll explain the full LabCorp drug test procedures so that you know in advance what you will face. I’ll talk to you about drug detection times, cut-off levels, the different types of panel drug test you could face a LabCorp, and even the correct temperature to submit urine samples within.
Plus, I’ll tell you the exact methods you need to know to pass a LabCorp drug test. The methods I’m going to share with you will work at Quest Diagnostics, and in fact any drug testing company.
You shouldn’t get hung up on the company conducting the tests because they all do the same things. So this guide will work for Quest Diagnostics or any of the other American drug testing companies.
Labcorp Drug Test Procedures (Same At Every Testing Lab)
Let’s start by telling you how Labcorp drug tests really work. It doesn’t really matter if its urine, oral, or hair drug test, the process at LabCorp is basically the same from your point of view.
You’ll go along and give them some identification to prove it’s actually you. You’ll then fill in some paperwork and weight.
At some locations, LabCorp has an automated check-in system where your ID is scanned to check-in and then you just wait to be called.
When the person conducting the test is with you, overwhelmingly, it will be an unsupervised drug test (nobody will be in the room with you when you submit your sample) a for urine test. Obviously, this is not the case with oral or hair drug tests.
The short Labcorp drug test procedure is:
You submit your sample, and if it’s a urine test they have to test it to make sure it’s within the legal temperature limits. Urine testing will also include specimen validity checks at that point as well. After that, you leave and you await your results. Mostly the results will be sent to the people who paid for the test rather than you.
Test LabCorp 10 Panel Drug Test
People get caught up and confused by panel drug tests. The most invasive test is actually the 12 panel drug test, but that’s quite rare because of its expense.
It’s important to note that the 10 panel LabCorp test is not a standard test. It’s usually only conducted on law enforcement officials, federal or state employees, and medical professionals. You are unlikely to face one outside of this unless you are facing very unusual circumstances.
But LabCorp drug testing starts with just four panels, and you are most likely to face the five panel test.
The four and five panel tests are basically the same, but with cannabis detection removed. This is a cultural and legal thing as more states move towards cannabis legalization and acceptance. Also, more and more companies are having an increasingly liberal attitude towards cannabis use.
When we talk about panels, it can refer to physical panels of chemically impregnated material that reacts the presence of drug metabolites. It can also refer to the number of substances digital testing equipment looks for, rather than physical panels.
The problem with trying to tell you what will be looked for is that it can be different. Just take a look at the differences between the four and five panel test. They may look for:
- Methadone, benzodiazepines, oxycodone, ecstasy
- THC, opiates, cocaine, PCP
- THC, opiates, cocaine, PCP, benzodiazepines
- Cocaine, amphetamine/methamphetamines, opiates, PCP, THC
The last line on the above list is what is checked for when you undertake a US Department of Transport standard drug test.
As you can see, you cannot predict exactly what will be looked for as the priorities differ between the companies and organizations commissioning the test.
But to give you some idea about how dangerous a LabCorp 10 panel drug test could be to you, these are the typical/standard substances looked for:
Drug Detection Times & Cut-Off Levels (LabCorp, Quest, And Others)
Drug detection times are another problematic issue to discuss. One person could be undetectable within two days while another person could take twice as long simply because of the way that metabolism works, due to the state of general health, or because of some other reason.
Also, the frequency and size of the dose, along with what else you are taking, plus things like physical health, all factor in to how quickly your body can eradicate/process drugs.
Overall, regardless of the substance, these are the broad risk profiles:
- Oral drug test detectable up to 3 days
- Urine sample drug test up to 7 days
- Hair drug test sample is always 30 days
You may get away with not being detected with less time clean, but the more you take, the more frequently, then the more up to those maximums you will get.
Plus, there are a couple of issues you also need to be aware of in terms of extended detection times.
- Because of the shape of cannabis metabolites they can attach to cells in the body. This means that weeks after your last joint you could still have cannabis metabolites detaching and working their way out of the body. It’s been known for people to test positive up to 3 months after the last joint if they are chronic smokers with high levels of metabolites in the body.
- Slow-release benzodiazepines can be detectable up to 2 weeks after you last consume them.
It’s the same with cut-off levels. Although there are industry standards, they vary between companies and different types of tests. Plus, the person commissioning the test could ask for the higher or lower levels of cut-off, depending on their desire to detect even very small and occasional use.
So in terms of trying to pre-empt detection times and cut-off levels, it is simply a fool’s game. You need to just concern yourself with making sure you appear clean if you suspect you won’t.
LabCorp Drug Test Urine Temperature Range: Legal Temperature Requirements
When it comes to understanding LabCorp drug test urine temperature ranges, it’s a standard legal requirement that you need to be aware of. Human urine exits the body at around 98 – 100°F. Never above 100°F.
To allow for cooling, LabCorp and other test centers have to accept any sample submitted between 90°F and 100°F.
Plus, when submitted, a urine sample has to be tested for its temperature within four minutes of being done. When you hand it over, they should be testing the temperature immediately, and there should be a time and temperature written on the side.
How To Pass LabCorp Drug Tests Of Any Type
As you can see, LabCorp drug test procedures are pretty straightforward, and you can’t pre-empt them too much because they are not always to a single standard and you just can’t work out many of the things that could happen.
All you can focus on is trying to get clean prior to your test.
If you’ve got seven days or more put all your drug tests and you are a moderate user, then just abstaining should do the trick.
You could also use some high-quality detox pills like Toxin Rid to accelerate that process by up to 50%.
But other than that, to pass each type of drug test LabCorp conducts, these are the tried and tested methods I’ve used myself, and I know other people have successfully used as well.
- Urine Drug Test
The best way to pass a urine sample drug test is to submit a completely fake sample of high-quality synthetic urine. Sub Solution is the most cost-effective product. There is a better product the same company called Quick Luck, but for the standard drug tests, you can definitely use Sub Solution.
It’s very high-quality, containing 14 chemicals found in real urine. It looks and smells like the real thing, and uses heat activator powder to give you complete control over the sample temperature.
It’s probably the safest and easiest way to pass a urine test. You can purchase Sub Solution for $85 at the manufacturer’s webshop. If you can’t, or won’t, use synthetic urine, or it’s a supervised drug test, then a high-quality detox drink is your only option.
Simply follow the instructions, and you’ll get three or four hours of clean and balanced urine before toxins start to appear in your urine again.
- Saliva Drug Test
To pass a saliva drug test, the only way I recommend you do that is to use Oral Clear gum.
It’s actually a capsule of concentrated mouthwash. You pop the capsule open between your teeth, and then swill the concentrated liquid around in your mouth. Use your tongue to work it into the gumline as well.
Then you spit it out, or if you are under observation simply swallow the lot. It will leave your mouth clear of toxins for around 15 minutes.
- Hair Drug Test
The hair drug test is very invasive. That’s because toxins get trapped underneath the shaft of the hair surface (the cuticle layer) as it grows out of the head due to drug toxins in your bloodstream getting trapped under the hair follicles.
So it’s an indelible record unless you can open up the hair shafts and flush out the toxins. The only way you can do that is to use the Macujo method. It’s invasive, and it uses an expensive shampoo called Aloe Toxin Rid as part of the process. But it definitely works.
