HEALTHCARE

Healthcare includes all facets of addiction medicine and all stages of recovery. Their needs are often different than the needs of the criminal justice system or those or the employment sector. They can differ from one setting to another or their differences can be seen based upon their geographical location. We have a wide range of options to satisfy CLIA and JCAHO requirements, as well as options to satisfy your specific needs for your patients and clients. National Test Systems offers both dip cards and integrated cups that can test up to 14 drugs and we can include adulteration detection to ensure specimen validity. If you need certain standards met, we can customize a device for you in order for you to meet the specific needs of your facility.

To learn more about how we can help provide your facility with all your drug testing needs, please contact one of our consultants today!

Synthetic CannabinoidsK2 SPICE

First synthesized in 1988 by Clemson University organic chemist John W. Huffman, synthetic cannabinoids were an attempt to target the endocannabinoid receptors in the human body. Essentially, they were attempting to target the cannabinoid receptors in the immune system that are tied up with inflammation, without affecting the receptors in the central nervous system; the central nervous system receptors are tied into the intoxicating effects (most commonly associated with THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana). In other words, they were hoping to find a medication with the pain-relieving properties of marijuana without the “high”.
