Oral drug test kits

Oral drug test kits have improved enormously in the last couple of years and the range of drugs that can now be tested is far greater. Some of the latest introductions such as the Oral Swab Cube shown in the picture are now available in combinations including a a 5 panel, 7 panel, 11 panel and 12 panel drug test , meaning that the number of drugs screened for is much greater. The 11 and 12 panel oral cubes also screen for alcohol.

For many companies oral tests are now the drug testing kits of choice particularly where testing needs to be done quickly on sites such as building sites, or roadside or track side.

The choice of drug groups included on these test kits is now almost as good as the comparable range of urine drug test membranes and the accuracy is just as good. Oral fluid sampling has the great advantage of being easy to perform anywhere, and can be directly observed, ensuring the sample has come directly from the donor, without any risk of dilution or tampering (adulteration).  This is a massive advantage for occupational and employment drug screening operatives, making it possible to conduct these drug tests in office, factory or on site locations

The modern design of the swab cube and swab tube incorporates the collection sponge on the screw lid (handle) which discharges the sample onto the drug test membranes as the lid is screwed into the body of the cube/tube. This design enables a true single step procedure, with no sample handling or transfer required. Once sealed the sample is leak proof. The only procedural problem we see occurring is insufficient saturation of the sponge, with too little saliva sample to wet all the test membranes.  To avoid this problem, simply ensure the sponge is super saturated with saliva and not removed too quickly from the mouth of the donor.

Results are easy to read. No additional test equipment is needed to conduct these drug tests other than a timer. Clear positive and negative results are shown for each of the drug tests included in the combination and testing takes no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

As with all instant drug test screening kits, positive results should be confirmed using an approved laboratory method. Oral drug tests offer a great and affordable way of screening all the negative results out, without paying for laboratory tests on every sample and having to wait for the results to be reported.

Drug and Alcohol Screening Test

Urine Drug Screening

Drug and alcohol screening tests have been available for over 20 years. There use in business screening as part of routine pre-employment tests is well established. Most drug tests where initially urine tests, requiring a fresh sample of urine to be collected at the point of testing. Where a full medical examination is being taken including urine testing for liver and kidney disease, this is still the best and most accurate add on drug test to include.

Saliva Drug Screening

Saliva Drug Screening

With the development of reliable saliva drug tests, many purchasers have moved to saliva drug screening as their preferred drug test. It gives direct chain of custody control of the sample collection, especially where the tests don’t form part of a clinical examination. Saliva drug screening can also be extended to alcohol screening. Saliva alcohol tests correlate directly to blood alcohol levels at the sample time. We advise against urine alcohol tests. Alcohol is excreted into urine over a long period, so its detection in urine is not a useful indicator of the level of consumption. All that it shows is that a legal drug (alcohol) has been consumed by the individual over the past 18-24hrs. An alcohol consumption history, while notoriously under reported is as much value. A saliva alcohol test showing high blood levels at the point of testing is a far more directive test, indicating an alcohol problem.

When making the choice of saliva or urine testing it is important to consider the drug and alcohol screening windows of detection offered by either mode. Urine drug testing will detect drug use far further back in time than saliva drug tests. Most urine drug test windows are 3-5 days after use. Comparative saliva drug test windows are much shorter at 12-36 hrs max, so expect to show less positive results if saliva testing is used. For critical employment roles we tend to advise purchasers to use urine based drug tests for this reason. For in role random drug & alcohol tests in non critical roles, saliva drug screening may be better as it will detect attendance while under the influence, but is less likely to detect social, domestic and pleasure recreational use over week ends and out of work alcohol consumption.
