Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get a negative drug test result?
Approximately 24 to 48 hours.
What does a dilute result mean?
A dilute specimen is a urine specimen that has a greater concentration of water than that of a normal urine specimen. Dilute specimens are generally caused by oral hydration of fluids and are usually more clear in appearance that normal urine. It is possible that a specimen could be dilute due to inadvertent over-hydration, several medications taken by the donor or existing medical conditions. However, it is also possible that the donor has intentionally over-hydrated, or water-loaded, to avoid the detection of presence of drugs in the specimen.
What is the difference between initial screening and confirmation testing at the lab?
The initial screening process at the lab separates the negative from non negative results. GCMS testing is an extremely accurate test that is completed on non negative results which provides quantitative results for the presence of a specific drug or drug metabolite.
Why are some people randomly tested more than once?
"Is the boss singling me out? I just did a random last month? Joe, never gets tested? I don’t think this thing is random at all!"
Those are not uncommon concerns among some safety-sensitive employees, and many employers have been challenged in court to demonstrate that their programs are truly random. The reality is that in a truly random selection process, a high probability exists that some employees will be selected several times while others may never be selected. Why? Because after each selection, the employee’s name is returned to the same pool, and he or she becomes just as likely as anyone else to be selected next time.

SECON was established and incorporated in 1981 as a canine search company. Upon the enactment of federal Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, SECON began offering on-site drug testing collections, on-site breath alcohol testing, and detector dog team searches to existing clients. Since that time, SECON has grown into a fully integrated provider of comprehensive drug testing and specimen collection services for criminal justice, government, and professional service clients.
SECON maintains two locations with Lafayette, Louisiana as it's headquarter. An additional service center is located in Houma, Louisiana. From these sites, the company administers a network of services that include more than 300,000 annual collections and/or test specimens for a large variety of public and private clients.
SECON’s client base covers a wide range of industries and services including oil & gas, manufacturing, construction, criminal justice, and transportation. SECON also provides services to all levels of government (local, state, and federal). We provide services nationwide and can tailor a program to meet your needs.
