PYDT Urine Drug Test FAQs

Results of a urine test show the presence or absence of specific drugs or drug metabolites in the urine. Metabolites are drug residues that remain in the system for some time after the effects of the drug have worn off. A positive urine test does not necessarily mean the subject was under the influence of drugs at the time of the test. Rather, it detects and measures use of a particular drug within the previous few days.


What Types of Test are There?

There are three different types of test for the Urine Drug.

Home Drug Test Kits are becoming more and more popular in the private sector for individual use, parents their testing teens, random drug testing in the work place and on the spot hiring. Most have a 50 ng/ml cut-off but there are some new ones that can test down to the GCMS level of 15 ng/ml cut-off, we have available the following for our customers in a 50 ng/ml cut-off single panel
drug screen, Amphetamine, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Cocaine, Ecstasy (MDMA), Marijuana (THC), Methamphetamines, Methadone, Nicotine, Opiates, PCP and Oxycodone please click on this link for more options

EMIT is the acronym for enzyme multiplied immunoassay technique, the cheapest and most common drug screen used in workplace drug testing. EMIT testing is typically used by employers as a preliminary drug screen because the test is prone to incorrect results. In general, occasional consumers (as in, once or twice per week) should have little trouble passing an EMIT test – which typically uses a 50 ng/ml cut-off for the THC-COOH metabolite – as long as they have had one or two days of abstinence prior to taking the test.

GCMS is the acronym for gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, better known in layman’s terms as the "confirmation test." Most workplace drug testing programs (including regulations for all US federal jobs) mandate all positive EMIT tests be confirmed by GCMS to eliminate the likelihood of “false positive” test results. Because GCMS tests typically use a low 15 ng/ml cut-off for marijuana metabolites, frequent cannabis consumers are prone to testing positive on this test for two to three weeks (or even longer in some extreme cases) after their last encounter.


What do they test for in a Standard 5 Panel Drug Test?
Basic testing typically screens for the following, commonly-abused drugs.
(Referred to as the "SAMHSA 5", previously called the "NIDA-5")
  • Amphetamines (speed, meth, crank, ecstasy)
  • Cannabinoids (marijuana, hash)
  • Cocaine (coke, crack)
  • Opiates (heroin, morphine, opium, codeine)
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)
What do they test for in a Extended Drug Test?

Extended testing might also screen for some or all of the following, but basic testing is the most common.
Barbiturates (phenobarbital, butalbital, secobarbital)
Benzodiazepines (tranquilizers like Valium, Librium, Xanax)
Ethanol (ethyl alcohol, booze)
Hallucinogens (LSD, mushrooms, mescaline, peyote)
Inhalants (paint, glue, hair spray)
Anabolic Steroids (synthesized, muscle-building hormones)

Additional Testable’s

Tryptamines (Psilocybin, AMT, DMT, DPT, 5-MeO-DiPT)
Phenethylamines (Mescaline, MDMA, MDA, MDE, 2C-B, 2C-T-7)
Inhalants’ (Toluene, Xylene, Benzene)

What Do Drug Tests NOT Test For?

The five-drug urine test used in the Federal Drug-Free Workplace Program does not detect all drugs used. For example, it does not detect so-called “club” drugs such as gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB) and Ecstasy, for example, although other urine tests can determine use of these drugs, and hair tests can easily detect Ecstasy use.

No standard test, however, can detect inhalant abuse, a problem that can have serious, even fatal, consequences. (Inhalant abuse refers to the deliberate inhalation or sniffing of common household products—gasoline, correction fluid, felt-tip markers, spray paint, air freshener, and cooking spray, to name a few—with the purpose of “getting high.”)

What are the drug test cut-off levels for the different drugs of abuse?

The table below indicates the standardized levels for urine and blood drug tests established by the international regulating authorities. These levels are reviewed and updated periodically. The detectable drug levels in your body are expressed in nanograms per milliliter solution.

What is a False Positive?

"False positives" are instances where the metabolite of a legal prescription drug or other substance (e.g. poppy seeds) tests positive for the metabolite of an illicit drug. Because marijuana’s metabolite is fairly unique, "false positives" are rare. However, at least one common prescription medication, Protonix (pantoprazole sodium), warns of "false positives" for cannabis. Over-the-counter ibuprofen products (e.g. Advil) will not test positive for marijuana on modern drug screens, but numerous OTC cold remedies may trigger "false positive" results for amphetamines, primarily on the EMIT test. Consequently, employees subject to random testing should insist that all positive test results be substantiated by follow up testing.

Pros of Urine Drug Testing

• Highest assurance of reliable results.
• Least expensive.
• Most flexibility in testing different drugs, including
alcohol and nicotine.
• Most likely of all drug-testing methods to withstand
legal challenge.

Cons of Urine Drug Testing

• Specimen can be adulterated, substituted,
or diluted.
• Limited window of detection.
• Test sometimes viewed as invasive or
• Biological hazard for specimen handling
and shipping to lab.

Can I Pass a Urine Drug Test?

Yes, regardless of what you read or hear, you can pass the urine drug test.

Many drug-using individuals are aware of techniques that detoxify their systems or mask their drug use. Some drink large amounts of water just before the test to dilute their urine; others add salt, bleach, or vinegar (salt and bleach are detectable, vinegar is hard on the kidneys when taken in large amounts) to their sample. In some cases, users call on their drug-free friends for bottles of clean urine.

Popular magazines and Internet sites give advice on how to dilute urine samples, and there are even companies that sell clean urine or products designed to distort test results. A number of techniques and products are focused on urine tests for marijuana,
but masking products increasingly are becoming available for tests of hair, oral fluids, alcohol drug testing and multiple drugs including chemicals, prescription and club drugs.

Most of these masking products do work and are almost always undetectable in the testing process. But even if the specific drug is successfully masked, the
product itself can be detected if the manufacture uses golden seal, in which case the specimen would become an obvious candidate for additional screening and

What about Your Products?

A-Z Enterprises has been in business since 1987, started out as a Mom and Pop Health Store in Sparks, Nevada. All of our products are undetectable for the urine drug test, hair, oral fluids (saliva), alcohol, sweat (patch) and fingernail drug test. We started shipping our products for website’s in 1991, then bought out the owner of

All of our products are UNDETECTABLE in any test. We were the first to come out with a Permanent Total Body Cleanse, a 32 ounce Detoxification Drink (Test‘in DUZz-It) and our site had the original Never Fail, Test’in Powdered Tea, Second in the Nation to come out with a cleansing shampoo and one of the more successful one’s, the Test’in Shampoo line, only one that has Test’in Hair Mudd for chemicals, Test’in Patch, Test’in line for Oral Fluid Saliva Tests, Test’in Spit n Kleen, (most companies don’t tell the consumer that any urine drug test products with the exception of Synthetic Urine can help pass a saliva drug test) and develop the only Fingernail Cleanse to date in the world that we are aware of Test’in Fingernail Cleanse and we private label and developed one of the first Steroid Cleanses.

Our products and programs have been copied by several other manufactures and website’s but we are the original and one of the oldest on the net, bashed all over the net and we feel that’s great, means they are working and that they are worried about competition. We have a 99.99 success rate and most failure’s are due to human error or the individual not wanting to admit to themselves the extent of their usage

Does Niacin Work for Drug Tests?

Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is a vitamin that the body uses for over 50 known chemical processes. One thing it does is help the body break down fats and cholesterol. Some people believe that since it speeds up fat metabolism a little that it may help speed up the process of eliminating THC from the body. People have tried taking large doses to try flushing out their system before a drug test.

There is no evidence at all that this works. Doses of niacin over 2 grams can be risky for the liver. Higher doses of niacin can also cause uncomfortable skin flushing and warmth. Drinking lots of water and cranberry juice may speed things up a little or help dilute your urine, but the only way to be sure of beating a drug test is not to use drugs before taking one or using one of the various pre-packaged products available.

How Many Nanograms in a Hit of Marijuana?

There are around 2,200-22,000 ng in a hit of THC, depending on the grade of Marijuana you are ingesting. Your body only naturally gets rid of 7-11ng a day. Marijuana has been known to show up in urine for some users up to 90 days after their last use. Detection times vary depending on many factors, including drug potency, tolerance, relative health of the test-taker, fluid intake at time of test. method and frequency of marijuana use, body type, metabolism, exercise frequency and many others. These are general guidelines only.

The half-life of TetraHydraCannabinol (THC) concentration ranges between 0.8 to 9.8 days. There is too much human variation to even approximate how long THC will be detected in the urine of an individual. Infrequent users with a fast metabolism will have the shortest detection time. Obviously, frequent users with a slow metabolism will have long detection times.

The only way to reasonably estimate your personal detection time is to consider the highest and lowest extremes (3-30 days) and use your best judgment to form an educated guess. The table below can function as a good guide for you.
Again, detection times vary depending upon the analytical method used, an individual’s drug metabolism, tolerance, health condition, fluid intake and method and frequency of ingestion. These are general guidelines only.

There are extreme variations. For example, if you use marijuana on rare occasions, your urine may be clean of metabolites in less than a week. Additionally, there is a common and strange phenomenon reported with chronic marijuana smokers. While you would expect a chronic user to have longer detection times, this is not necessarily the case. A chronic user with a high tolerance will eliminate drugs quicker than an occasional user. Chronic users have even tested negative after a week-long smoking binge. Lipid tissue also makes a significant difference. Thin users not only have a faster metabolism, but also lack the fat storage for THC metabolites. Additionally, more body fat will cause a lag in excretion patterns and lead to longer detection times.

As you can see, individual detection times for marijuana are extremely diverse and unpredictable.

What is a Nanogram?

A nanogram is one billionth (1/1,000,000,000) of a gram. Drug testers rely on this microscopic unit of measurement (e.g. 15 ng/ml) to measure residual levels drugs and/or drug metabolites in blood, urine, hair and/or saliva.

What is a Metabolite?

Drug metabolites are compounds produced from chemical changes of a psychoactive substance in the body, but they are not necessarily psychoactive themselves. The presence of drug metabolites – not the presence of illicit drugs – is the primary indicator of drug use in workplace drug testing programs, such as urinalysis and hair testing.

Explanations of Blood, Hair and Saliva Drug Tests

Blood tests are a better detector of recent use, since they measure the actual presence of THC in the system. Because they are invasive and difficult to administer, blood tests are used less frequently. They are typically used in investigations of accidents, injuries and DUIs, where they can give a useful indication of whether the subject was actually under the influence.

Urine Test to perform a drug test on someone's urine, a sample has to be collected in an examination cup, (often in a controlled environment). For immediate results, the test is performed with a test card. If the test calls for most sophisticated results, the urine is sent out to a testing facility and the results are given after a week or two.

The urine test is very reliable and is performed at most federally mandated facilities that require drug testing.

Hair tests are the most objectionable form of drug testing, since they do not measure current use, but rather non-psychoactive residues that remain in the hair for months afterwards. These residues are absorbed internally and do not appear in the hair until 7-10 days after first use. Afterwards, they cannot be washed out by shampoos (though shampoos may help remove external smoke particles that get stuck in the hair). Hair tests are more likely to detect regular than occasional marijuana use. One study found that 85% of daily users tested positive for marijuana, versus 52% of occasional smokers (1-5 times per week). Ingested cannabis was less likely to be detected than smoked marijuana. It is doubtful whether hair tests are sensitive to one-time use of marijuana.

Saliva testing is a newer, less proven technology. The sensitivity of saliva tests is not well established in the case of marijuana. In theory, they are supposed to detect recent use, but this may range from several hours to over a day. They are supposed to detect secretions from inside the oral tissues that cannot be washed out with mouthwash. Because they are less intrusive than blood or urine tests, the industry has been eager to develop saliva tests. Due to reliability problems, they have yet to gain acceptance in the U.S., but they have come into use in some other countries, such as Australia.
