There’s one specific category of panel drug tests that were made in order to expedite the process of using them at home without complex instructions or a lab professional. We refer to these tests now as “CLIA waived tests.” CLIA stands for Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments. CLIA waived testing was made to give laypersons a way to test themselves for certain drugs without the risk of self-harm. Because many employers require a drug test to apply for a job at their establishment but some won’t pay for it, CLIA waved tests are great. Although you can use these drug test kits without professional supervision, there are some other things you should be aware of.
