Generally companies prefer saliva screening as its quick, easy and hygienic. There are no chain of custody issues with collecting the sample. No urine handling for all the negative, clear test candidates, and the costs are coming down, making it more affordable.

As with all onsite drug testing, we recommend the urine workplace confirmation drug test pack with full accreditation and chain of custody for all non negative test results. Moving to a urine confirmation, while not ideal, keeps business’s fully compliant with best practice and the backing of a fully accredited UK lab certificate of confirmation for tribunal and disciplinary hearings.

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 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.

A new oral fluid saliva drug testing kit panel option is available with a combination which is ideal for employment drug screening being conducted by business users. the 6 drug “saliva confirm” drug test oral drug testing kit from confirm bioscience screens a saliva sample for cannabis, amphetamines, opiates (heroin) cocaine, benzodiazepines, methamphetamines and ecstacy, the last 2 drug groups are not differentiated so a positive result indicates the detection of one or both drugs in the sample.

The combination on this saliva drug test make it an ideal choice for business and employment drug screening. The saliva confirm panel covers everything that employers are expected to screen for in one simple and easy to do test.

The saliva confirm oral drug test is also available in single, five test and 25 test packs so an exact number can be purchased rather than the standard 25 test pack multiples required by many other manufacturers.

What is an Oral Drug Test ?

An oral drug test or mouth swab drug test is a drug screen taken using a sample of saliva.

The collection format varies from brand to brand. Some oral drug tests are a single step drug test, with the absorbant membrane incorporated directly onto the test membrane. Others use a seperate collection tool, mainly variations of a sponge on a stick. The saliva is then transfered either directly to the test membrane, or in 3 stage tests to a collection reservoir or storage vesel, allowing retention of an element of the original sample for later laboratory analysis (confirmation testing)

The drug screen depends as with urine near patient tests on the group of drug selected by the tester. Saliva drug tests are available in single drug formats, just screening for single drugs such as cannabis or cocaine.

More common are multiple drug combination allowing simultaneous screening for a range of common drugs. Common membranes include opiates, methamphetamine, cannabis, cocaine, amphetamine, benzodiazepines and  methadone. PCP is also available but the range is not as extensive as for near patient urine drug screening.

 Unlike urine formats there is no commonly agreed international cut off level for detection in oral fluid. As a result the detection levels vary considerable from brand to brand, with manufacturers competing for ever more sensitive membranes and the longest detection periods from usage. Check the specifics of the saliva drug test used as comparing the results from different products may otherwise cause confusion, and will invariable vary from an alternative urine based test.

The interpretaion of oral drug test results can also be less clear than with urine drug testing, as the detection levels are set much lower with the resultant take up of reagent forming thinner and fainter negative result lines. Full reaction times are also needed and must be allowed before reading results.

Despite these factors saliva drug testing has become more widespread, particularly in business and employment screening where the handling of urine is seen as problematic and the advantage of non invasive, easy direct sample observation is seen as a major compliance advantage to testers.

The shorter detection periods are also better for employers more interested in the issue of “under the influence in the workplace” versus “recreational weekend exposure”  which may not necessarily affect performance.

Saliva Drug Tests and Employment Drug Screening

Employment and pre-employment drug screening is again in the news, and despite the economic doom and gloom companies are still investing in careful drugs screening to ensure the right employees are taken on.

Most companies embarking on drug and alcohol screening do not have the facility of an in house occupational health or HR department to oversee the program. This makes picking the right tools for the job even more essential.

Managers need to understand the differences between urine drug testing kits and saliva drug test kits, look carefully at the drug groups covered by the drug testing kit and the manufaturers guide & detection times for each drug type. These vary enormously.

Saliva drug testing kits  offer the enormous advantage of easy sample collection, with high confidence levels that you are testing a fresh sample, from the person you intend to screen. Urine collection is obviously harder to oversee.

A range of saliva drug tests are available in the UK. Ensure the drug testing product carries a professional CE mark and also lists the European representative for the registration mark. Follow the manufacturers instructions for use and also refer to the accuracy studies which should be listed in the data sheet provided with all professional drug test drug testing packs. Products sold as home or self tests, or just not listed as professional, may be from the same manufacturer but do not have to meet the same regulatory and EU compliance tests. Check with the supplier if these drug test products are as good before purchasing.
