What does FDA Approved and CLIA Waived mean?

So, what does FDA approved mean? The agency is charged with examining, testing, and approving a wide range of items for medical use. This includes everything from drugs and medical devices to tests. Getting FDA approval simply means that the agency has decided the benefits of approving the item outweigh any potential risks for its planned use.

Negative or Positive Dilute: What Does That Mean?

What’s the difference between positive and negative dilute? If the urine test results come back as “positive dilute” that means it tested positive for drugs, but also was dilute. A test that comes back with this result is considered positive. A positive dilute is, for all intents and purposes considered positive, and employers or potential employers or a treating clinician should handle it as such.
