Drug tester is used to provide technical analysis of a biological specimen, such as sweat, blood, breath, hair, urine and other biological samples. The drug tester is also used to determine the presence or absence of the parent drug or their metabolites. These are widely used in hospitals, educational institutes, and colleges.
Drug testing has a significant role to play in various industries for example, when applying for employment in airline industries, federal transportation, railways, and workplaces where public security is of high importance. Furthermore, the drug testers are also widely used in sports industry to determine quantity of illegal or performance boosting drugs such as diuretics, recombinant human growth hormone, anabolic steroids, and others. Some of the significant illegal drugs include cannabis, heroin, cocaine, amphetamine, and ecstasy. The demand for the drug tester is rapidly increasing for the urine sample testing due to the cost associated with the urine drug tester is relatively low and affordable along with that it gives a reliable result. The drug tester tests the samples in two segments which includes the primary and confirmatory test. In the primary analysis, the immunoassay toxicity testing method is used, and in the confirmatory test, the Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry test is used for testing the drug samples. This drug tester determines the presence of the drug and the quantity of the drug, these factors are boosting the growth of the drug tester at higher CAGR during the forecast period.
