Drugs of Abuse Testing Market Dynamics Drivers

Urine drug testing is routinely utilised in clinical, employment, educational, and legal contexts, and incorrect results interpretation can have serious negative effects on the person being tested. Clinicians face difficulties when trying to correctly interpret urine drug test results because of improvements in drug testing technology as well as an increase in the number of novel chemicals that are abused. Because urine testing is rapid, noninvasive, and capable of detecting a wide range of substances, it is the most popular. Depending on the medication used, it may be able to detect medicines that were used within the last 1 to 4 days, or even longer. Recent scientific advancements in the equipment and materials used to test urine samples for drugs of abuse have made these tests, when properly executed, highly accurate for cannabis and cocaine, the two most common drugs of abuse.
