Frequently Asked Questions
Results are typically available 24–48 business hours from the time the sample is received at the lab.
Fill out a paper requisition form and include it with the patients’ sample in a specimen bag. Samples may be collected by one of our daily couriers, shipped to the lab, or collected at a provider location depending on the arrangement with Rize. If you’re unsure how to get samples to us or haven’t yet set up your default collection methods, please call us at 541-368-3050, ext. 142.
For toxicology, patients cannot view results. Only their provider/counselor can view results. Clients can, however, receive a PDF with their results via encrypted email or through our online portal.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or set up a monthly supply order.
Samples may be cancelled for a number of reasons, including:
- A custody seal was not used
- The custody seal was broken
- Sample did not include the correct unique identifiers – we require full name, DOB, and sample number.
- Unique identifiers on the sample do not match those on the requisition form
- The lid on the specimen cup was not closed correctly, and it leaked in transit.
- The sample cup was crushed, and it leaked in transit. Shipping boxes prevent this.
Anytime we cancel a sample, we will send out a report explaining the reason.
Please give us a call at 541-368-3050, ext. 142, to speak with a laboratory specialist about results.
Screening is like a yes or no answer. You either test positive or negative for a substance. It offers a quicker turnaround time, but results are not as accurate. Positive results may require further testing using more complex methods to see the specific quantity of a substance in a person’s system.
Confirmation is testing for substances within a certain range. Confirmation takes longer due to the high complexity of the test, but results are reliable and accurate with no cross reactivity.
We don’t test for the parent substance, in this case ethanol. We instead test for the biomarker. Biomarkers are present for five days while the parent substance itself stays in the system for less than a day. Testing for biomarkers meets all state testing requirements.
No. We can only identify whether that biomarker is present. Genetics, diet, hydration, and lifestyle all impact how alcohol is metabolized, so there is no way to pinpoint the specifics of an individual’s consumption.
These compounds occur naturally in poppy seeds, which can also be found in some breads and bagels. Eating poppy seeds will generally result in lower levels of codeine/morphine, up to 1000 ng/mL, but it may be best to check ingredients and just try to avoid poppy seeds in the days leading up to a test.
