2024 First Quarter Newsletter

Mar 14, 2024

DATAC is delighted to present our first newsletter of the year, full of useful information about the drug and alcohol testing industry. If you weren’t able to join us for our first webinar of the year on Environmental Exposure hosted by Dr. Donna Coy, USDTLs laboratory director. Don’t worry if you weren’t able to attend, there is a review article inside the newsletter to get you up to date! We learned all about how the testing works and how it shows whether someone is positive due to taking in the drug, or positive due to simply being around the drug. We are so thankful to USDTL and Dr. Coy for making time to help us all learn about environmental exposure testing.

In this newsletter you will also find a Company Spotlight on one of our oldest members, Safety Coordination Services out of Edmonton, Alberta, who have been with us since 2016! We have been through so many changes and updates to the drug and alcohol testing industry and grown together and we are so happy to be able to feature them in this quarter’s newsletter. 

Some other great features include a workflow that goes over the Safety Advisory procedure from the laboratory release of a non-negative result, to the waiting period and first release and then finally the end result of a re-release as a Negative with Safety Advisory. There are also two industry articles, one the latest updates from the DOT and the other about the burgeoning psychedelic mushroom business within Canada. 

You definitely don’t want to miss this newsletter chock full of information specifically for those of us who are working within the drug and alcohol testing industry in any of the various roles. We are here to make sure you stay up to date with all the latest industry news and updates. Enjoy!
