TechniTest Services (mobile and walk-in facilities available)
Drugs are metabolised (processed) by each person differently. Your results are unique to you. You can take two people of the same age, who used the same drug in the same amounts over the same time frame, conduct the same drug screen, but have different results. Some factors that affect each person:
- The strength and purity of the drug
- How much was used/consumed
- How was it used (inhaled, injected, inserted, snorted)
- How often is it used (daily, every few hours, occasionally)
- What other drugs/medications/alcohol was taken
- Tolerance to the drug
- Gender and age
- Overall health, mental health, well-being and metabolism
