Our Mission

Lehigh Valley Toxicology is a full service clinical reference laboratory that utilizes the most sophisticated, sensitive, and specific equipment and technology available to screen, confirm, and quantitate drugs of abuse in urine. LVT offers flexible and customizable testing options and procedures overseen by a full time staff of highly trained toxicologists and technicians. We offer exceedingly thorough and comprehensive testing programs for a wide variety of clinical applications such as pain management compliance, drug abuse monitoring, and neonatal withdrawal prevention programs.

With a wide scope of panels we test for Opiates, Opioid Analgesics, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Anticonvulsants, Muscle Relaxants, Suboxone Components, Drugs of Abuse, Stimulants, Antidepressants, and Sleep Aids. LVT also screens for adulteration techniques including sample dilution. Urine testing also includes metabolite detection to ensure dosing adulteration techniques aren’t used. A full list of our testing panels can be found at www.lvtox.com. Additional drug detection can be developed by request in just under two weeks.

Each and every report is carefully reviewed by our staff before delivery to insure accurate results in reference to drugs detected, anticipated results, and actual results. LVT’s reports also include historical data with up to four of each patient’s previous test results. Our staff is also available full time to discuss results with providers. Result delivery is automated through our HIPPA compliant webportal database, autofax, or email. All samples are frozen and stored on site if need for future testing is every required. All collection and shipping supplies are provided for your convenience.

Our goal is to be your number one resource in protecting your patients, your community, and your practice.
