Following initial collection preparations, donors are legally identified and their samples collected using a strict set of procedures called ‘the chain of custody’. The sample is then either screened straight away using a point of care device, or packaged with the appropriate security protocols to ensure the integrity of the sample and screened at the laboratory.
If either method presents a ‘non-negative’ result, the sample enters the “confirmation” stage of further in-depth scientific analysis. At this point, it can be determined whether the substance found if medication in line with a therapeutic dose or illegal substance(s).
