a newly developed, patented collection device for human saliva samples, the
is a self-contained, ready to use, point of contact drug testing device that detects
the five most common drugs
(or drug classes) of abuse: Marijuana (THC), Cocaine, Opiates (or all opium
based drugs), Amphetamine (and its derivatives),
and Benzodiazepines (sedatives) 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
at ten minutes.
Fluid Assay System For Drugs of Abuse
The SalivaConfirm™5 forensic drug testing system detects the five most commonly abused illicit and prescription drugs using a saliva sample. Because urine collection is not necessary, there are certain advantages using the SalivaConfirm™5 system for on-site drug screening. Sample collection is less hazardous, less embarrassing for the parties, and because there is no need for privacy during sample collection, less prone to corruption by sample substitution or adulteration. 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™ 5 will detect Marijuana (THC), Cocaine (COC), Opiate (OPI), Amphetamine (AMP) and Benzodiazepine (BZD) 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 saliva drug screens in relationship to urine based tests see the Technical Whitepaper on saliva based drug testing methods.
Additionally, the SalivaConfirm™ 5 drug test will detect the metabolites and chemical derivatives of the class of drugs noted above including all opium derivatives (codeine, heroin, etc.) and Amphetamines (ecstasy, Methamphetamine, etc.) Other features of using the SalivaConfirm™ 5 drug test include:
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 5-7 minutes after the control line (C) appears for test results to fully develop. Test results are read by observing and scoring whether red/pink lines develop on the test result panel as present or absent. Complete absence of a test line indicates a positive test. Development of a test line, no matter how faint, indicates a negative result for the labeled drug or drug metabolite. No correlation or assumptions should be drawn on the color or intensity of test lines. Intensity and color will vary line to line in the test panel and this result is both usual and expected. Examples of test results
NEGATIVE test result is indicated by the development
and presence of a red/pink line adjacent to the labeled target drug.. If
there is a visible line, no matter how faint it may
be, the test should be considered negative result for the target drug. An extremely faint line could mean that the target drug is near the sensitivity cut-off level for the test
however the result is still negative. In such circumstances the test could be repeated at another time or a more quantitative method of laboratory testing be employed.
