Why Choose Oral Fluid Screening Versus Urine Drug Testing?

Oral fluid testing can detect drugs anytime, from immediately after the most
recent use, up to three days after use. Conventional drug testing with urine
cannot accurately detect usage in the first four hours after use, thus making
saliva superior. Many individuals who abuse substances are very well
informed about all the ways to cheat tests. They know that if they give a urine
sample less than four hours after they use drugs, the results will be negative.
This simply cannot occur with Oral Fluid Screening.

Is It Possible to ‘Beat’ Oral Fluid Screening?

Drug abusers have found many ways to “beat” a urine test, but oral fluid drug
testing eliminates this risk of cheating. All oral drug tests must be administered
under supervised observation so “beating the system” is much more difficult
and ‘drug cleansing’ products will not work for oral fluids even though they do
work on urine.

Are There Still False Negatives with Oral Fluid Screening?

Our oral fluid screening for Cocaine, Opiates and Methamphetamine is 60%
more sensitive than that of similar screens on urine samples reducing the
number of false negatives for those drugs.

Is Oral Fluid Screening Admissible in Court?

Yes. Saliva test results have been admitted in Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio,
Missouri, and most other states. Most state statutes will allow the testing of
any “bodily fluid” for court purposes.

Does Oral Fluid Screening Produce as Many False Positives as Urine

The forensic laboratory we utilize employs the most sophisticated and
accurate confirmation method available. Their process is 100 to 1,000 times
more precise than traditional methods of testing, reducing the risk of false
positives in confirmed results, actually providing a 100% accuracy rate for
every confirmed positive result you receive.
