DOT and Non DOT drug test

Difference between DOT and Non DOT urine collection
DOT urine collection follows federal regulation protocols; however, the Non DOT is not. In DOT urine collection, the donor is required to provide 45 ml urine. The collector pours 30 ml of the urine in the specimen bottle and will be sealed by “A” label and 15 ml in another specimen bottle and will be sealed with “B” label.

What is “Shy Bladder”

what is “Shy Bladder” drug testing
The term “shy bladder” refers to a situation when the employee does not provide a sufficient amount of urine (45 mL) for a DOT-required drug test. The collector explains to the employee the process for a shy bladder collection and urges the employee to drink up to 40 ounces of fluids, distributed reasonably through a period of up to three hours, or until the individual has provided a sufficient urine specimen, whichever occurs first. It is not a refusal to test if the employee declines to drink.
