ATAGO Urine Specific Gravity Refractometers Continue to Catch Drug Test Cheaters

For as long as employers, sporting officials, and probation officers have administered drug tests, drug testees have found ways to cheat them. It’s an incessant, drug testing arms race: drug testers will find a seemingly fool-proof method for detecting a certain drug, only for testees to find a clever way to get around it. One need only consider high profile athletes like Lance Armstrong – whose sophisticated doping program involved a world-wide network of physicians and chemists at a cost of millions of dollars – to understand the lengths some will go to cheat a drug test.

For employees undergoing workplace drug tests, the cheating methods are less expensive, though often no less ingenious. Some drug user will add over-the-counter eye drops to their urine to mask the presence of THC (marijuana’s active ingredient), as the eye drop molecules will envelop those of the THC, hiding them from chemical detection. Drug test cheaters can also buy artificial urine in surreptitious containers designed to control the liquid’s temperature. (Urine testing processes will often measure the temperature of urine to see if it’s warm enough to have come from a human body.)

Drug users who are desperate enough might even resort to one of the simplest methods for cheating a urine test: drinking lots of water.

Unfortunately for these people, drug testing technicians have a bomb-proof method for detecting this type of subterfuge: urine specific gravity refractometers, such as those made by ATAGO.

Dilution is one of the most common methods for cheating a urine test. There are a few ways to do it: 1) Drinking lots of water before the test, 2) consuming diuretics to induce urination, 3) or adding water or another liquid to the urine sample. Diluting urine d
