Employee Health

On-site Screening Products

Laverty Pathology is the leading supplier of on-site testing products for employees and other testing programs in New South Wales. More employers use our on-site instant testing products than any other product in the market.

Laverty Pathology is able to supply a variety of on-site “instant” test kits that enable you to make informed decisions about issues that might otherwise compromise safety of patients, employees and your business. Our quality standards ensure that our on-site testing products are reliable and validated against laboratory standards. 

All on-site “instant” test kit results that are to be relied upon for medico legal or HR purposes should require validation of the specimen’s result via a “gold standard” laboratory based liquid/gas chromatography and mass spectrometry analysis. Our laboratories are the only laboratories that are able to offer this gold standard for both urine and saliva specimens. This is why Laverty Pathology is a key partner in the design of and implementation of any testing program that incorporates on site screening products that you may consider.

Lab based Confirmatory Services of On-Site Products

To enable you to rely on the results of an instant on-site testing program for medico legal (including human resource) reasons, it is a usual requirement that the test results are confirmed by the more sensitive and accurate lab based liquid/gas chromatography and mass spectrometry analysis.

Laverty Pathology is the only laboratory in New South Wales that is able to offer this confirmatory service for both Saliva and Urine specimens, and why Laverty Pathology is an integral partner in the design and implementation of your employee health program where on-site drug and alcohol testing is conducted. 

Lab based confirmations on urine specimens are usually only performed once a non-negative result is received from the initial screen. Only the drug class that produced a 'non-negative' result will be confirmed, with the purpose of eliminating any false positive results that may have been produced in the initial screen. Mass Spectrometry is considered by the courts as being the ‘gold standard’. Due to the method being more time-consuming and technically complex, there is a longer turnaround time for results than the initial screen.

Lab based confirmations on saliva specimens are usually only performed a positive result is received from the initial screen. In contrast to urine confirmations, in the case of saliva confirmations, all of the drug classes including the negatives are retested and a new report is issued. Again due to the method being more time-consuming and technically complex, there is a longer turnaround time for results than the initial screen.
