Urine Drug Collection
Acosta Technicians go through vigorous training to meet all DOT requirements for Urine Collection Qualification. A six-hour course designed to comply with DOT regulations pertaining to collectors.

Instant Result Urine Collection – Non-DOT
As an alternative to sending a urine specimen to a certified laboratory, there are many circumstances where there is a need for “instant” drug test results. Acosta offers on-site drug testing using immediate response testing products in order to identify negative specimens in as little as three minutes. These products are cost effective, accurate, and easy to administer and provide results in a matter of minutes. They are available in 5-panel, approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, but are not approved for DOT testing.
Oral Fluid Testing
Oral Fluid testing is for non-DOT tests at this time. Advantages to Oral Fluid Testing include no “shy bladder” syndrome, easy collection, and useful in detecting very recent drug use.
Hair Testing is for non-DOT tests at this time. Advantages to Hair Testing include sensitivity to drug use for the past approximately the last 90 days, resistance to tampering and adulterating, elimination of “shy bladder” syndrome, and non-invasive collection process.
