THIS IS NOT A ALL THE TIME ISSUE BUT IT DOES HAPPEN
I have been observing a trend in last year and see more and more results claiming people are POSITIVE on THC screens with a initial SCREEN being ignored. The way a properly conducted test is run is supposed to be just as Quest CLAIMS they do .
" Quest Diagnostics, uses a two-tiered testing process. First, a portion of the hair specimen is screened using an Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) - a reliable and proven methodology for routine drug testing. Secondly, any specimens that are presumptive positive in the screening process are then confirmed, utilizing another portion of the hair specimen, with either gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (GC/MS/MS)."
Only if and when you are over the cutoff of the initial SCREEN of 1.0pg are they to run a confirmation screen at 0.1pg . after all their is a reason its call confirmation , you cant confirm something if you never properly screen it initially .
Just like how they lowered cocaine and meth from 500 pg to 300 pg and then added extended opiate panels to get more positives labs are either ignoring the1pg cutoff on initial screen or lowering it to below 1pg .
Unfortunately their is no mandatory guidelines they MUST obey unless its federal like DOT, so they can cheat you and get away with it . IT IS NOT FAIR NOR HONEST AND WE NEED TO MAKE SOME NOISE .
Too many times I have to get people to demand a physical copy and often the labs dont want to give it up as it documents you have been screwed.
Here are some examples of people who should have been deemed NEGATIVE and were screwed by quest .
AS PAPERWORK STATES " THIS TEST WAS PER FORMED ..............................
0.6 is below 1.0 on SCREEN so no confirmation is needed it not would be ran if under threshold
how do you presume the SCREEN is positive if it is below threshold ? you dont unless you skip it .
SO quest skips initial 1pg screen to test you at 0.1pg basically nothing and we have discovered psychmedics has their own cheating method ...
psychmedics using a ng/ 10mg scale to confuse , the 5pg/10mg is actually equal o 0.5 pg /mg which is HALF the normal threshold of 1pg/mg .
Still not enough to keep hair razor from getting a negative result
UNDER INITIAL THRESHOLD TESTER HAD TO COMPLAIN TO SEE ACTUAL RESULTS
WILL BE POSTING NEW BLOG ON NEW TACTIC GOING ON AT PSYMEDICS
HEAR IS ANOTHER LAB CHEATING PEOPLE
these assclowns show no initial cutoff level (1.0 pg ) and a confirmation threshold of 0.03 !!! standard is 0.1 pg WTF
Quest and psychmedics are admitting hair razor is effecting their positive result numbers by their dishonest practices .
Their are PLENTY of Hair Razor users who had same use and passed and they document it on our Hair Razor Reviews page
