What Do We Test For?

The different varieties of drug tests are referred to as 'panels', often accompanied by a number which indicates how many drugs are being tested for. The most common tests are the 5 Panel and the 10 Panel. What is in each panel, and which one is right for you?

5 Panel

Every drug test is based on the 5 Panel test. It is the most popular test, and is the go-to choice of government agencies such as the DOT. The higher panel tests simply expand upon this test. The 5 Panel test includes:

  • Amphetamines (including methamphetamine)

  • Cocaine

  • Marijuana

  • Opiates (including Codeine, Morphine, and Heroin)

  • PCP


5 Panel with Expanded Opiates

With the increasing misuse of prescription opiates, the 5 Panel with Extended Opiates tests for commonly prescribed pain medications. This is our most popular hair follicle test. This adds the detection of opiates to the 5 Panel test: Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Dilaudid, Oxymorphone, Oxycodone, and Lorcet.

10 Panel

Using the 5 Panel with Expanded Opiates test as a starting point, the 10 Panel adds several more drugs commonly abused. This higher panel is not require by the DOT, but some employers and government agencies prefer this test. And the modest increase in price compared to a 5 Panel makes this a very attractive option. The 10 panel includes:

  • Amphetamines (including methamphetamine)

  • Cocaine

  • Marijuana

  • Opiates (including Codeine, Morphine, and Heroin)

  • PCP

  • Propoxyphene

  • Barbiturates

  • Benzodiazepenes

  • Methadone

  • Methaqualone

10 Panel +

Employers and individuals looking for additional drugs not tested for in the 10 Panel may request additional panels, such as the 12 panel which commonly adds tramadol and Demerol. But any other drugs can be requested as well. Any number of drugs can be added, such as nicotine, fentanyl, and many others. There is no set numbers of panels above the 10 Panel test, since these are considered custom tests.


Alcohol testing may also be added to urine or hair tests, if the breath alcohol test is not desired. This can be an affordable alternative to a urine drug screening in addition to a breath alcohol test.
