Oral drug testing is very attractive to employers, as it offers a quick easy and non invasive route for onsite drug screening of employees. Many employers are opting for oral or saliva drug screening in preference to urine drug screening, as oral drug screening can be just as cheap and reliable as the traditional urine drug tests, but avoids the issues of observed sample collection inherent in the urine drug testing method.
Oral drug testing kits suitable for employers can cost as little as £5 per test and give immediate provisional test results on site, with accuracy levels of between 97 – 99% compared to laboratory tests. This makes saliva oral drug screening a reliable and cost effective front line drug screening option, for even small and medium sized employers, as the oral drug test kits can be purchased in small numbers without restrictive or expensive contracts.
Oral drug testing kits are available with a range of drug detection tests built into the panel. Our recommended combination is the DSW-765 6 drug oral saliva drug screen as it covers the common drugs most employers are interested in screening out. The DSW-765 oral drug test kit is easy to use and gives clear, easy to read results in 5 minutes. Employers can use this as a first line drug screen to exclude all negative tests on employees, in an easy to complete and cost effective drug screening program. All provisional positive results from the drug screen should be confirmed using an accredited laboratory before disciplinary action is taken (as with all onsite drug tests)
