Urine Testing


Racing Analytical Services Ltd (RASL) can perform both drug screening and confirmation in urine to the AS/NZS 4308:2008 standard. In most cases results are reported within 24 hours of sample submission at our Flemington laboratory.

The company operates a high security laboratory to protect the integrity of your samples. All samples are tracked with a sophisticated Laboratory Information Management System from sample log-in to final reporting and stored under secure conditions monitored by CCTV. Our trained staff ensure that we deliver high quality analytical results, on time, every week of the year.

Drug screening in urine is performed by an automated immunoassay that provides more reliable testing than on-site immunoassay devices. Confirmation is performed by either LC/MS/MS or by GC/MS techniques, depending on the drug in question.
