Direct 4 in 1 saliva drug testing kit DSD-843

New for 2016 in the UK drug testing kit market is the direct 4 drug saliva drug test kit, catalog ref DSD-843

Simpler, easier to use and with all the accuracy of its larger combination brothers, the DSD-843 is placed directly into the mouth and absorbs saliva directly. The test can be seen running while still in the mouth, and when the pink dye is visible in the results window the test can be removed and placed back in its cover to complete running.

No saliva transfer. no collection or processing. This test literally runs itself and give 4 clear results, 1 for each of the screened drugs.

A lot of people asked for a saliva drug test just for Cannabis and Cocaine, adding Amphetamine (Speed) and Opiates (heroin, morphine codeine) made sense, did not increase the cost of the panel greatly and expands the market for the test.

We think this drug test is going to prove very popular with buyers wanting an entry level saliva drug test which is easy to use and reliable. It may also have a place in workplace drug screening where Benzodiazepines are not considered an issue.

Its the most comprehensive saliva drug screen available on the market, and allows companies to run a cost efficient, comprehensive drug screening program, without the need to collect urine, as a front line method of screening.

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.

Roadside drug test Cannabis & Cocaine

The new roadside drug test in the UK has now been in force since the 2nd March 2015  and already police across the UK have already tested some drivers and found them to be positive for either Cannabis or Cocaine.

The new drug test kits that the police are using will initially be used to test just for Cannabis and Cocaine at the roadside.

In the longer term the police may also decide to screen for Opiates, benzodiazepines, amphetamine and metamphetamine at the roadside.

The saliva drug test that the police use has a short window of detection, and so is a good guide at to whether the driver is under the influence of drugs, in a similar way to a breathalyser shows if a driver is under the influence of alcohol.

Drug driving test- how long will drugs be detected after use ?

The new police roadside drug test in the UK will use a saliva drug testing kits which can detect drugs in saliva, for up to several hours after last use.

The aim of the new test is to detect whether there has been very recent consumption of drugs by the driver, and whether they are under the influence of drugs while driving.

The drugs that can be detected with this initial test that the police will be using are Cannabis, Cocaine and Crack Cocaine.

Opiates including Heroin and Morphine , Amphetamine , Benzodiazepines, Methadone and Methamphetamines also impair driving ability, and in years to come these drugs may also be tested for at the roadside on the same test.

Saliva drug testing gives a shorter detection window generally than urine drug testing with most drugs. Cannabis for example is only detectable in saliva for up to a maximum of 12 hours after last use.

This means that saliva drug testing is a very good indication of whether the driver is under the influence of drugs at the time of the test.

Oral drug test kits

Oral drug test kits

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.

Saliva Drug Test Detection Times

Saliva drug test detection times are shorter than the  comparable urine drug test detection times. They vary considerably depending on which brand of saliva drug testing kit you are using. Both the sensitivity and selectivity vary, and make a big difference to the detectable drug period. As saliva drug tests have not been developed to the same international level of cut offs, it is not always possible to compare the results of 2 different brands of saliva drug testing kits, done on the same sample, and it is worth always sticking with the same brand for a comparable series of tests. As a rough guide expect most drugs to be detectable for 48 to 72 hours after use when using a saliva drug test kit, but it is worth noting the THC Cannabis detection times for various products

Drug and Alcohol Screening Test

 

Cup urine drug test kit

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.
