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.
