What does “ng/mL” mean on my drug test?
What does an ng/mL level mean on my drug test?
A “ng/ml” stands for nanograms per milliliter. It is used by labs as a unit of measure (of density) for test results. Specifically, for our customers, it is used for drug testing results.
Who came up with these levels for each drug?
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. http://www.samhsa.gov/
How did SAMSHA determine these levels?
SAMSHA considers positive results above the standard ng/mL level abuse, more than a one-time use.
What level are UTest drug testing kits?
All of our drug tests we sell are of the same level as a lab-based test. We also carry a few testing devices that can detect at even lower levels than the standardized lab tests.
Why do these levels concern you as a customer?
It’s important to do your research and make sure that any drug test you buy meets the standard levels of a lab test. If you do not buy a test that meets the standard level or is lower than the standard level of a lab, you run the risk of testing positive (dirty) when you go in for a standardized test.

“I really like this drug test (Utest-O-Meter). I used a detox (desperate times) and then followed up with this test a few hours later. . . the test was useful in verifying that the detox did not work.”
“This company is amazing. I got the test Saturday around 7pm and took it at 10pm. I emailed them that same night and got a reply within minutes. Highly recommend trying this one to figure out where you are.”
“I was a little skeptical ordering a test online to check for a pre-employment drug screen. The first time the lines were a little faint, so I tried again. When I contacted U-TEST, I was called by the owner of the company. They have been around for 26 years. I also received emails on the correct way to perform the test.”
“Don’t waste your money on $15-$20 tests like the ones at Rite Aid, CVS, or Walmart. This test is highly sensitive and measures down low to 15ng. Accurate and beneficial to have, always have a couple on hand to test yourself before anything.”
“I had bought a dollar store test when I found out on a Thursday I had a pre employment test coming up the next Monday. It was a 50ng that produced a very faint line. So I ordered this test and it was here on Saturday. I took it the next day and it was easy to read and gave me a clear negative, all the way across. Trusted it and passed my lab test the next day.”

“Good news. I am below the 20ng on day 138. It took a long time because I am overweight, old, smoked concentrated oils, and have been on bed rest the past 11 months due to bad injuries. And two surgeries. Thank you for [the] fast delivery and great product.”
“This product saved my job and I highly recommend using this if you have any upcoming drug test for work.”
“Worth the price & gave me the results I needed. Sensitivity is very good, making it lower than a normal urinalysis test is very beneficial and lets you feel confident about the results either way.”
“This is hands down the best test on the market. It really gives you the reassurance you need to know you will pass a lab test. I passed this and a few days later passed my pre employment LabCorp test.”
“Super easy to use, love the discreet packaging they use. . .Passed with flying colors at home and passed my UA for a new job. I had about 2 weeks clean. Extremely quick results, less than a minute.”
“Have brought these several times and they work as described. Please follow the directions. If you were a heavy smoker like I was it took me over four months to rid the THC out of my body (been smoking over 15 years, the first time clean).”
“I like that if this test is negative then I know for sure that the lab test will be negative. I also like that you can send a picture of your results to the company and they will read them for you if you're not sure of your results! Love this product and I will buy again 👍👍.”
