WHAT IS AN ORAL FLUID DRUG TEST OR NICOTINE TEST?
Oral fluid drug testing and nicotine (cotinine) testing offers confidential, lab-based results using an oral fluid swab collection method. The donor can collect his or her own sample onsite in the presence of a disinterested third-party collector, making this test non-invasive and always under direct observation. Oral fluid drug testing can be used for pre-employment, random, reasonable suspicion, return-to-duty and post-accident.
Non-negative results are confirmed utilizing GC/MS or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
WHY DO I NEED AN SALIVA DRUG OR NICOTINE TEST?
Oral saliva drug testing is becoming increasingly popular as it is easy to obtain a sample quickly and does not require much cooperation from the person who is being tested. It can test the most common drugs requested by employers such as marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines/methamphetamines and PCP. Oral fluid detection periods vary, depending on type of drug; however, is generally a better type of specimen than urine for recent use testing.
OTHER RELEVANT TESTS:
You may want to consider other specimen alternatives for drug testing such as urine, hair or blood drug panels, depending on the detection period you are looking for.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY TEST RESULTS?
The oral collection process takes approximately 5 minutes to collect. The actual drug test begins as soon as the specimen arrives at the laboratory. If the test is negative, results are reported out the same day. If non-negative, the specimen will be confirmed and reviewed which can take up to 72 hours from the time of receipt.
