How accurate and sensitive are most drug screening tests?

The screen test is accurate and sensitive to the specified cut-off levels, but is qualitative and not as accurate as laboratory tests. If drugs are present in the system, you will usually see a presumptive positive result. When the result is preliminary positive, you should send the samples to the laboratory for a second, quantitative and more accurate test.
