Drug testing is the established way to quickly detect evidence of illicit or illegal drugs in a donor's sample. As drugs pass through the body they can be found in different matrices at different times.
Fingerprint screening is an innovative new method of drug testing, that uses fingerprint sweat to provide non-invasive drug screening that's quick and easy to administer. The process is non-invasive, rapid and as it can function without gender-specific collectors, specialist handling or preparation areas, can offer real cost savings. It's worth noting that this process collects eccrine sweat samples only, and takes no impression of a fingerprint.
Oral fluid is directly relational to blood plasma as they share the same biological content. Therefore meaning metabolites present in saliva are still present in the blood stream, and likely to be active in the body. This makes oral fluid screening the choice for ‘for-cause’ testing. Oral screening can also be used for random and pre-employment situations where you need to check someone is safe to enter site.
Drug metabolites begin appearing in urine a couple of hours after a substance is taken. These metabolites can be detectable in a urine sample for several days and up to a maximum of 2 weeks after use. Urine drug screening allows you the choice of the most parameters, with up to 15 drug types in one test.
