If a test is positive (non negative) this is an indication that one or more of the illicit drugs were detected in the specimen. The donor is informed that they have failed the drug test. If the test has been requested by the employer, they too are notified of the failed drug test. It is at this time that the specimen is sent to an accredited laboratory for confirmation of the failed test if the employer wishes to do so.

With regards to a positive test for alcohol, under the Australian Standards when the first test is conducted you must wait 15 minutes and then conduct another test. Most think this is to see if the level has gone up or down but waiting 15 minutes is actually to allow the breathalyser to reset itself ready for the next test. Please note that all results should be recorded and we can supply the correct paperwork for this to be done.
