International Testing – Quest Diagnostics has operated in Europe since 1996 and provides diagnostics testing at its central laboratory facility in West London, located close to Heathrow airport. The laboratory performs a standard 12-panel drug test for pre-employment purposes. Turnaround times for reporting negative results are generally within 24 hours after specimen receipt. Confirmed positive reports are generally issued within 3 days from the receipt of the specimen at the laboratory. The laboratory is able to receive samples 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The U.K. facility receives specimens daily from all major European countries and other international locations, such as China and South Africa. The facility has extensive logistics support to enable shipping supplies to customers and returning samples to the testing laboratory.

The U.K. Laboratory is accredited by the UKAS ISO/IEC 17025 as well as the College of American Pathologists (CAP) for Forensic Urine Drug Testing.
