Using a skin patch to monitor a person for future drug use is a great way to both encourage positive drug choices and to enforce drug policies. But how does a skin test work? When someone uses drugs, those drugs are carried throughout his or her body in the bloodstream. As a drug reaches different organs and tissues it is metabolized and processed in different ways, showing its effects in all areas and systems of the body. Trace indicators of the drugs pass through the user’s skin in his or her sweat. A specially designed testing patch can pick up on those trace indicators if affixed to a drug user’s skin. As long as the patch remains affixed to a person’s skin, any instance of drug use will be recorded, resulting in a positive test.
Fastest Labs always conducts its drug testing services quickly, professionally, and accurately, and our patch monitoring services are no different. You'll be surprised how quickly the patch is affixed and how rapidly you get your results at the end. Whether you need court-admissible drug monitoring as part of a court proceeding or quick, personal results for private reasons, we'll get you results, quickly, accurately, and effortlessly. That's the Fastest Labs way.

While other testing methods do a good job of revealing past drug use, a skin/sweat monitoring system is an effective way of monitoring for future drug use. In instances where it is a higher priority to prevent drug use or when a person’s behavior has suggested they are at high-risk of drug use, a drug testing skin patch is especially useful. Whether by court order or employer requirements, a skin test can serve as both a deterrent and a monitor.
While it might seem that a skin patch is very easily tampered with--just take it off when you do drugs, right?--it’s not that simple. The drug testing patch is affixed with a tamper-proof seal, so if the patch is removed, we’ll know. Any patch-removal is treated as an automatic fail, thus rendering tampering irrelevant. There are also no known alterant substances that can influence a skin drug testing patch’s ability to detect drug use indicators.
It’s impossible to have a more secure chain of custody than you get with sweat and skin drug testing patches. Our professionally trained testing professionals affix the patch and verify it is done correctly and securely. At the end of the monitoring period, those same professionals remove the patch. Any tampering with the patch during the monitoring period will be registered and observed at the removal stage and given an automatic fail. Untampered patches are analyzed in 1-3 days, following our strict protocols for security and accuracy. You don’t get more secure than that.
