Can a company legally utilize instant urine drug test kits without utilizing trained lab professionals or an MRO?

For example, I just completed a pre-employment drug screen test where the company utilizes their "Nurse Educator" to perform pre-employment drug screens with the do-it-yourself kit like the ones you can buy on the Internet. The person performing the test has no training, there is absolutely no lab involvement, nor the use of a Medical Review Officer.

It is and has always been vital for companies to utilize urine drug tests kits legally. Again, the personnel should be trained as this sensitive field requires getting accurate and informed results. It would be very hard to analyze the results if such employees are not trained in this field.
