A standard drug test is one that detects certain common substances. Drug tests are referred to by the number of drugs they test for. Drug tests range from 5 panel (five different drugs) to a comprehensive 25 panel drug test. The most common panels are 5, 10 and 12.

Drugs usually tested for in a drug test:

• Marijuana
• Cocaine
• Opiates – opium and codeine derivatives
• Amphetamines and methamphetamines
• Phencyclidine – PCP

Typical panels
