Testing Made Easy

Drug Testing Made Easy, Results You Can Count On

Modern drug screening has become significantly more complicated for employers and their teams. The rise of remote and mobile workers and the need for multiple testing methods introduces a new set of screening complexities. Moreover, with 23 states now having legalized marijuana along with surging workplace drug positivity rates, this necessitates the need for periodic revisions to drug testing panels. You need a provider that understands your organization's unique screening needs and one you trust to guide you through new and evolving industry requirements.

Whether your business necessitates virtual collections, hair, nail, blood, oral fluid, or breath alcohol testing, Vault can meet your needs with a network of over 17,000 collection sites and our own staff of virtual collectors.
