Drug testing involves examining samples such as urine, breath, oral fluids, hair, and other bodily fluids for the presence of compounds over the legal limit. The importance of drug testing is due to the fact that a person under the influence of drugs or alcohol is more likely to cause accidents on the road and in the workplace. Drug tests are available from companies like Abbott Laboratories for use in the workplace, government agencies, rehabilitation clinics, and other locations. These tests are non-invasive and painless. In addition, manufacturers such as Alere, Inc. (part of Abbott Laboratories) offer point-of-care diagnostic tests for drug testing. Additionally, drug addicts in specific occupations, such as air traffic controllers and commercial drivers, can compromise the safety of others, which can be avoided through pre-employment urine testing. Drug testing could also help reduce accidents at work. A urine test is painless and looks for prescription drugs such as amphetamines, methamphetamines, benzodiazepines, marijuana, barbiturates, cocaine, methadone, and opioids in the pee (narcotics). Additionally, drug and alcohol treatment centers should regularly test residents to ensure they are sober. Technological advancements such as immunoassay techniques for drug testing and rapid point-of-care testing have fueled the growth of the drug testing market.
