5 Panel Urine Drug Test – All you need to know about test

5 Panel Urine Drug Test – All you need to know about test

In drug testing relating programs, the number of panels means the number of drugs is checked.

5 Panel drug tests are federally recognized as the industry standard.


This means that a 5 Panel drug test will search for only 5 drugs. A 10 Panel drug test will search for ten drugs. Additionally, this test is required for many private employers. Veritas Lab offers two types of Urine Drug Testing. Instant urine drug testing allows our customers to receive their drug test results shortly after collection is completed. For drug testing provided on premises and the urine sample don’t have to live the premises. Our certified drug testing collectors will guarantee the high accuracy of the collection and the testing process. Shortly after urine drug test collection results will be emailed to you as a PDF attachment and will be available online for you to upload it from our website. The second type of the 5 Panel Urine Drug testing is laboratory-based urine drug tests.

These are the 5 commonly abused substances that are checked during the 5-Panel Drug Test:

  • THC
  • PCP
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamines
  • Opiates

How far back will 5 panel urine drug test go? What is a timeframe for 5 Panel Urine Drug Test? How long drugs stay in your system in 5 Panel Urine Drug Test?


Several factors play role in the time of detection in 5 panel urine drug testing. Major influencing criteria are:

  • Body weight of the person who consumed drugs
  • Amount of the drug consumed
  • Metabolism
  • How often a person did use the drug in the past

Let’s say a person who weighs 250 hundred pounds did a few puffs of marijuana, and same did a person who weighs 120 pounds. Physiologically amount of ingested narcotic divided on the body weight. A heavier person will have a shorter period of detection considering that the health condition and other factors were identical. Amount of drug consumed also plays an important role when it comes to a drug detection time in 5 Panel Urine Drug Test. If a person smokes a large amount of the drug all day long, while the other person did one puff, the heavier user will have a longer period of detection in 5 Panel Urine Drug Test. Another physiological factor that we take into consideration when it comes to a detection time in 5 Panel urine drug testing is metabolism. Metabolism is a transformation of chemical and biological substances within the cells. Basically, it’s when chemical and biological substances are breaking down or transforming within the cell. Every person has different speed and quality of metabolism. It correlates with genetic factors, age and health condition. Young health adult will have a faster metabolism than alder ill person. Faster metabolism makes drugs transformation or breaking process faster. So as faster you metabolism as shorter will be your detection time for urine drug testing. Lastly, chronic drug users have a longer period of detection on the urine drug testing. If a person used drugs once and the first time in his/her life, this person will have shorter detection time on the urine drug testing compared to a person who uses the same drug over some period of time.
