With collection locations in all 50 states and internationally in Canada, Mexico, Guam, and Puerto Rico, ESS’ collection network offers convenient options to any organization, anywhere. ESS can establish a full-service drug testing program or just a local collection site, depending on your organization’s needs. ESS’ primary drug testing solution is urine collection and analysis, which is the most common type of testing for a screening. ESS does offer additional alternative testing methods as well.

Widespread coverage does not mean you should sacrifice turnaround. ESS also offers the E-Screen electronic drug testing solution, which gives ESS the capability to provide nearly-instant negative screen results – often in less than an hour after collection.

ESS partners with the major certified laboratories like Labcorp, Quest, and Medtox. Some of our clinic partners include Any Lab Test Now, Concentra, EMSI, and US Healthworks.

ESS provides the new cutting edge process for drug testing. Electronic registration saves on the environment by using less paper, speeds up the process, and provides easier more accurate data processing. The 5-part custody and control form is eliminated with this new process. No more sending custody and control forms overnight which will save on time and shipping costs.An applicant or donor can be registered online and assigned a registration number. A one page document can be emailed/printed with registration number and a map to the collection facility. The collection facility will enter additional information about the collection process. Samples are sent to the lab and information is tracked electronically to give a status of each step. ESS also works with many HR systems to integrate processing of drug testing.

Electronic Registration Benefits:

  • Paperless registration
  • Email of registrations
  • Collection of specimens
  • Reporting of results
  • Status of each step taken
