5 panel drug screen test

When you are told to get a drug screen, what happens next? After your school, employer or a court orders you to get a drug test, you need to go to your local testing facility. They will take a urine sample from you and use it to test.

What are they testing for? Typically, they will screen your urine sample for drugs using a 5 Panel Drug Screen similar to the ones available here. These are usually what are called ‘DIP’ tests. This means that the device has five absorbent ‘fingers’, which are dipped into your urine. They will test for the major drug classes as recommended by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration): Cocaine, Opiates, Amphetamines, Marijuana and Phencyclidine.

What if I need a test myself before taking the official test?

Thats easy and sensible. Look online, follow the instructions on how to do it and and read the result. This way you are clean and will pass the test you have been asked to do.

What if I need a test for different set of five drugs?

The versions of the 5 Panel Drug Screen you can buy on are all FDA 510(K) cleared and mostly CLIA waived. Many configurations are not available in the local drug store. Buying online gives you the option to customize which drugs you will test for to meet your individual needs. For example, the 5 Panel Drug Screen from EliteScreen is available in seven options:

  1. W754: Benzodiazepines Cocaine Methamphetamine Opiates/Morphine Marijuana
  2. W654: Cocaine Methamphetamine Marijuana Opiates Benzodiazepines
  3. W554: Ecstasy Cocaine Marijuana Opiates/Morphine Methamphetamine
  4. W454: Amphetamines Cocaine Marijuana Opiates/Morphine Phencyclidine
  5. W354: Phencyclidine Cocaine Marijuana Opiates Methamphetamine
  6. W254: Amphetamines Cocaine Marijuana Opiates Methamphetamine
  7. W154: Amphetamines Cocaine Marijuana Opiates Phencyclidine

Having these different configurations available allows you to buy exactly what you need, when you need, and for far cheaper than at local retail outlets. For example, the cost of certain tests can vary as much as $3.00 to $50.00, depending on whether they are purchased in store or online.

Won’t a more expensive test be better? Not necessarily. If the test kit is FDA cleared, it is likely to be sufficient and will generally produce similar results to other FDA cleared brands. Paying more doesn’t mean tests will be more accurate. Please compare our prices at

What options do I have with a 5 Panel Drug Screen Test?

Another testing option to consider is a ‘CUP’ version. This works the same way as a DIP test except you receive a cup for holding the urine. Some people consider this easier to use and cleaner.
