Quest Diagnostics now tests for synthetic stimulants (bath salts)

Synthetic drug use presents unique challenges for employers to navigate. As a relatively new phenomenon, the existence of these drugs is neither widely known nor understood. This makes identifying the signs of potential abuse in the workforce difficult and many employers may be unaware of their drug testing options.

Quest Diagnostics offers a comprehensive suite of drug testing products and services which now includes testing for Synthetic Stimulants (“Bath Salts”). This new panel will be tested in our SAMHSA-certified laboratory in West Norriton, PA and will detect a broad range of synthetic stimulant analytes including:

  • Alpha-PVPImage of Bath Salts
  • Flephedrone
  • Methedrone
  • MDPV
  • Pentylone
  • Butylone
  • Mephedrone
  • Methylone
  • Pentedrone

We offer urine testing for these drugs using LC/MS/MS (Liquid Chromatography tandem Mass Spectrometry), the latest in urinalysis drug testing technology.

If you have any questions about Synthetic Stimulants or if you want to start testing with Quest Diagnostics, contact us online or call our National Customer Support Center at 800-877-7484.
