Toxicology Testing

Clinical Toxicology is the measurement and interpretation of concentrations of drugs and other toxic substance in human biological fluids for the purpose of patient monitoring or care.

Clinical Toxicology Testing is useful for medication monitoring when a patient has been prescribed medication that has high potential for abuse, misuse, or dependency, such as pain medication. It is also used for general drug testing to identify the type and quantity of drugs, if any, a person is or has been taking. You can scroll down the page or choose from the options below to find out more about the types of Toxicology Testing offed by TENSSource.

Medication Monitoring Drug Testing

Medication Monitoring

Treating a patient’s pain, acute or chronic, is challenging. The majority of the medications to treat pain are extremely habit-forming and have a very good chance of being abused or misused. It is up to you, the prescribing physician, to manage your patient’s dosage and protect them from the many potential adverse effects from pain management medications.

TENSSource provides Medication Management testing to ensure that your patients are following their prescriptions in a safely and beneficially. Urine, blood, and saliva testing are available as well as more sensitive and accurate methods such as Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectroscopy (GC/MS) and Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry/Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).

Another option may be to take full advantage of the advancements in pain management with Pharmacogenetic Testing. This allows you to determine an individuals’ ability to metabolize medications which can help you tailor your prescription on a per patient basis. You can find more information on this type of test on our DNA Testing page.

Drug Testing

TENSSource’s Drug Testing Service tests for alcohol, illicit drugs commonly abused (such as cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines, benzodiazepines, and barbiturates), and their metabolites.

Drug Testing is used by companies to ensure the safety of the workplace and their employees. Employees that abuse or misuse drugs are more likely to cause accidents and miss work. They are also less productive and cost more to insure than drug-free employees.

TENSSource can provide drug testing services to physicians that do not have the ability to perform lab testing at their practice location. We can also assist physicians in setting up a lab for drug testing at their practice so that they are able to perform their own tests without the services of an outsourced lab. TENSSource is here to serve all of your drug testing needs. Below are some of the test we can perform for you.
