U/A Question. Neg test, sent to lab anyway?
I've been scouring the net trying to find info on a similar situation, and can't seem to find anything.
A close friend of mine recently went for a pre-employment drug screening. The night before, this person had taken an at home test, which was clearly negative for THC. This person has not smoked in a month and has been drinking water/ exercising to help the process along.
When this person was tested by dip stick urine analysis, the tech first said there was an extremely faint line, then said she wasn't sure if there was a line at all. Friend says there WAS a line and the tech agreed, but said she needed to send it to a lab for confirmation. On friend's paperwork, the result was negative, but was pending lab confirmation. They told my friend that they could go ahead and come in for their orientation and they would finish this persons physical pending lab results, which would be back in a few days. This happened on a Saturday, so I'm sure my friend will not hear back until Tuesday or so.
From my understanding, any line in the test area is considered A NEGATIVE, NO MATTER HOW FAINT. And since the lab tech wrote down negative as the result, I don't understand why it needs to be lab tested. Friend is freaking out. If the test is confirmed with GC/MS, what are the chances friend will fail? Has this situation happened to anyone else? What was the outcome?
