  • It is recommended to NOT drink more than 8oz (a "glass") of fluid in the 2 hours before giving a urine sample. An abundance of fluid in the body will result in a "dilute" reading, which constitutes a "flagged" result.
  • At the facility, if you are not able produce a urine sample when requested, call ADB at 1-800-200-0853 on how to proceed. The lab will run extensive tests to verify if the drug screen is negative/positive/dilute.

    For Negative Results - a fax is sent from LabCorp to American DataBank to input the results.
    For Dilute Results - please contact your institution on how to proceed. You may be prompt to re-order the Drug Screen package and re-collect.
    For Positive Results - the results are forwarded to the Medical Review Officer. The Medical Review Officer will contact you for verification of any prescription drug you may be taking to show a false positive. After discussion, the Medical Review Office will send a fax to American DataBank to input the results and close the order. If the order is positive the Medical Review Office will list the drug that is positive.
