Detecting Counter Measures in Drug Tests
Laboratories know how easy it is to tamper with urine samples and alter the results, so they test to find out if the sample is legitimate.

However, if you choose to try other means of passing your test, Marijuana.comcautiously advises you on the following:
If a urine sample looks clear, the lab or the collector may suspect that it has been watered down. You can take Vitamin B complex to color your urine yellow. Do not go overboard on the vitamins, however, or you will get neon green pee.
Standard Laboratory Adulterant Checks
Creatinine is a byproduct of creatine. If someone substitutes their urine with something (or synthetic urine), the lab will not detect drugs. However, the specimen will be rejected or labeled adulterated due to the abnormally low level of creatinine. If the creatinine level is too low, the specimen is determined to be not human urine and you will fail your drug test. If the specimen is abnormally low, but within the parameters of human urine, the lab will label it to be diluted. If no drugs are detected in a diluted specimen, the specimen is labeled “negative dilute.” If drugs are detected in a dilute specimen it will be labeled “positive dilute.” A positive dilute result is the same as a positive drug test.
pH is often changed when people spike their sample with household products like cleansers, soaps or shampoos. Like creatinine, there is a pH level where normal urine falls. If you have fallen outside that normal parameter, your specimen will be labeled “adulterated.” An adulterated specimen is the same as a positive specimen..
Specific gravity is also used to determine if you have tried to dilute your urine by drinking an excessive quantity of fluids before a drug test. There is a normal human range for specific gravity and if you fall too far below that level, your urine will be labeled “dilute.” If you fall so far as to be outside the possibility of human urine, the lab will report the result as adulterated. Remember, an adulterated specimen is a failed drug test.
Gender, age, pregnancy, hepatitis, AIDS, etc. are undetectable in a drug test. The drug test is detecting drugs in the system, nothing else. The tests look for specific things and do not report everything available in the urine. Just because a specimen comes from a pregnant 23 year old unmarried college student, if the urine contains no illegal substances,the drug test result will be negative.
A 1-panel test usually tests for only THC. A 2-panel test screens for two different drugs, amphetamines and THC, cocaine and opium, etc. A 5-panel test detects five different illegal substances. A 10-panel test detects up to 10 different illegal substances and so on. A DOT-regulated drug test is a 5-panel test detecting amphetamines, cocaine, opium, THC and PCP. Most non-DOT regulated pre-employment and random tests done for employment purposes are either a 5- or 10-panel test.
