Drug Screening & Testing
At IMS a urine drug test is used to test current employees or job applicants for illegal drug or alcohol use. Typical drugs screened for in a urine drug test include amphetamines, cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines, opiates, nicotine, and alcohol. Panels can be customized based on employers needs.

Hair Follicle Testing (Adults & Children)
A hair screening is an examination that uses a small sample of hair to identify specific drugs the patient has used. Hair follicle drug tests typically cover a 90 day time period, measuring the drug molecules and their specific metabolites that are produced only after the drug has been processed by the human body. Upon request, hair follicle testing can cover the span of 1 year. IMS uses Child Guard drug panels which is the only hair drug test intentionally designed to detect passive exposure.

DNA Testing
A DNA test is a test in which someone's DNA is analyzed, for example to see if they have committed a particular crime or are the parent of a particular child.

Electronic Fingerprint/Background Checks
Fingerprints of people from all walks of life are searchable in the central database of fingerprints and arrest data, which is managed by the FBI. The process consists of fingerprints being taken electronically by our trained staff and crosschecked against the IAFIS database. Background checks typically take a few days, showing employment and education history, driving record, criminal record, property ownership, workers' compensation records, bankruptcy history, and credit scores.

Breath Alcohol Testing
This test consist of the person being tested blowing into a breath alcohol device (breathalyzer) to measure the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of the test. This test does not measure past use of alcohol.

DOT & Non DOT Physicals

DOT physicals are conducted by our DOT approved medical examiner for employment or to renew a medical certificate. DOT physical examinations are valid for up to 24 months, but may be less depending on certain health conditions that may require future monitoring.

Non DOT physicals are conducted by a physician or an approved medical examiner. These are used by many employers to ensure that the employee is physically fit to perform the tasks related to a specific job.
