Incorporating a newly developed, patented collection device for human saliva samples, the SalivaConfirm-4™ is a self-contained, ready to use, point of contact drug testing device that detects four drugs (or drug classes) of abuse: Marijuana (THC), Cocaine, Opiates (or all opium based drugs) and Methamphetamine (and its derivatives) using the preferred lateral flow immunoassay technology for this method of test screening. The test requires no special training to complete and qualitative yes/no results are visibly obtained within ten (10) minutes and results are stable up to 1 hour.
Fluid Assay System For Drugs of Abuse
The SalivaConfirm-4™ forensic drug testing system detects the four most commonly abused illicit drugs using a saliva sample. Because urine collection is not necessary, there are certain advantages using the SalivaConfirm-4™ system for on-site drug screening. Additionally, because the test subject is present for the entire sample collection and testing process, the possibility of sample adulteration and/or substitution is eliminated. The SalivaConfirm-4™ will detect Marijuana (THC), Cocaine (COC), Opiate (OPI) and Methamphetamine (M-AMP) use at a sensitivity level for saliva concentration* according to the following chart:
* Sensitivity detection levels for oral fluid (saliva) are considerably lower than those for urine tests because the concentration of detectable drug metabolites are significantly less in oral fluids (saliva). The sensitivity cut-off levels above generally correlate with the standards established for forensic urine tests by the NIDA, SAMSHA and WHO. For a technical document on the precision and specificity of the ORALINE (formerly ORALscreen) saliva drug screen in relationship to urine based tests see the OralScreen Technical Whitepaper.
Additionally, the Aimstep SalivaConfirm-4™ drug test will detect the metabolites and chemical derivatives of the class of drugs noted above including all opium derivatives (codeine, heroin, etc.) and Methamphetamine (ecstasy, amphetamine, etc.) Other features of using the SalivaConfirm-4 drug test include:
The SalivaConfirm-4™ System is formulated for use with human oral fluid specimens (saliva). Confirm the expiration date printed on the test package. Do not open the test packages until you are ready to perform the drug screen assay. If, necessary, bring the test pouch to room temperature . Insure that the person being tested has had nothing in their mouth for at least 5 minutes before sample collection. This includes water or other beverages (dilution) or food of any type (contamination). Directly observe the person during sample collection.
IMPORTANT: Test devices must be at room temperature (15-30°C) before testing. These are basic procedure descriptions, please refer to the detailed product insert when performing the actual test.
1. Bring the sealed pouch to room temperature before opening.
Remove the test device from the pouch and use it as soon as possible.
Check the expiration date on the product pouch. Remove the test cap exposing the
collection pad wick.
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
Wait 10 minutes for test results to fully develop. Test results are read by observing and scoring the pre-printed red/pink lines on the test result panel as present or absent, 15 minutes after the sample was added: Note: the graphic below is for illustration purposes only. The actual test device will vary from the pictures below however the result interpretation is the same.
A NEGATIVE test result is indicated by the continued presence of a red/pink line adjacent to the labeled target drug.. If there remains a visible line,
no matter how faint it may become during test development, the test should be considered negative for the target drug. An extremely faint line could mean that the target drug is near the sensitivity cut-off level for the test. In such circumstances the test could be repeated at another time or a more quantitative method of laboratory testing be employed.
The SalivaConfirm-4™ Saliva Drug Testing System is currently available for point of contact drug of abuse screening in the following configurations. Individual tests in 10 each packs. Standard pack is a dispenser box of twenty five tests. SalivaConfirm-4™ Saliva Drug Tests are intended for non-diagnostic, forensic use only.
