Drug Testing Kits Saliva the oral fluid drug test DSW-765

Drug testing kits for saliva, also known as oral fluid drug tests have been available for around 8 years. Recently the US FDA opted in favour of saliva drug tests as its first choice for employment, workplace and federal drug screening, allowing US agencies to move from urine based drug testing to saliva based screening programs. The one major problem with urine drug testing is the collection, or observed collection of samples, and the issues around substitution, dilution or contamination that can arise when a testee attempts to avoid detection. Saliva swab collection avoids all these issues and allows directly observed sample collection and delivery directly to the test container fully observed and witnessed if required, giving the testing agency 100% confidence in the testing procedure.

One of the best value drug testing kits for saliva currently on the market is the DSW-765 distributed by UKDrugTesting. This saliva drug test offers an ideal combination of 6 drug test membranes in a single test kit, covering most common drugs of abuse of interest to UK companies. The product is available for next day UK delivery and trial packs are also available for companies to run trial evaluations.

Drug Testing In The Workplace In The UK

Drug testing in the workplace is now well established in most larger UK companies and has expanded rapidly in UK SME’s. Workplace drug testing benefits companies, reducing risk, and demonstrates an understanding of the health and employment risks of ignoring employees attending the workplace, under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Many large companies understand the benefits of immediate on-site drug & alcohol screening, and undertake this in house with point of care onsite drug testing kits. this also offers enormous cost benefits with instant drug testing kits such as the FirstSign 6 drug saliva drug testing kit costing as little as £6 per test.

In house screening for drugs is simple to do, responsive and 100% adequate to exclude all negative test results. Companies considering workplace drug testing for the first time are sometimes anxious that an in-house solution will not be adequate legally and be messy and difficult to operate. Workplace drug testing kits have been designed to be easy to use and accurate. They are used internationally by some of the worlds largest companies as front line employee drug screening tests, excluding millions of negative screens from expensive and slow laboratory drug testing.

Pre-employment drug testing, random workplace drug testing, targeted on-suspicion workplace drug testing, and any other targeted role specific (high employment risk) employee drug screening, and post incident or accident workplace drug screening, are all suitable for on-site point of care workplace drug testing kits such as the InstAlert DSD-765 oral saliva drug testing kit or UKDrugtesting’s DSW-765 drug testing kits for saliva.

The saliva drug testing kits above each offer a slightly different combination of 6 drug groups. There is no specified group or combination of drugs which has to be covered by UK law or HSE recommendation, It is left to the Employer to consider the local common risk hazards and the demographic of the workforce and pick a combination which covers these drugs. The six drug combinations all include the common recreational drugs, and are all suitable for employment workplace drug testing.
