Detecting drug use with a saliva drug test is a clean and easy drug screening technique. Saliva specimens are collected while the donor is under observation, which makes it harder for the donor to tamper with the results. OraLert 6 Oral Fluid Drug Screen Device saliva drug test collection process is much less invasive and embarrassing than urine drug testing. We offer quality saliva oral fluid drug test kits. OraLert 6 Oral Fluid Drug Screen e-z oral test Device is a dynamic saliva drug test kit detecting up to 5 drugs. Our saliva drug test kit detects traces of drugs (or drug metabolites) in oral fluids from the donor. Since drugs and drug metabolites (residues) do not remain in oral fluids as long as they do in urine, this method shows more promise in determining current use and impairment.
The OraLert 6 Oral Fluid Drug Screen Device is an immunoassay based on the principle of competitive binding. Drugs that may be present in the oral fluid specimen compete against their respective drug conjugates for binding sites on their specific antibody. During testing, a portion of the oral fluid specimen migrates upward by capillary action. A drug, if present in the oral fluid specimen below its cut-off concentration, will not saturate the binding sites of its specific antibody. The antibody will then react with the drug-protein conjugate and a visible colored line will show up in the test line region of the specific drug strip. The presence of drug above the cut-off concentration in the oral fluid specimen will saturate all the binding sites of the antibody. Therefore, the colored line will not form in the test line region. A drug-positive oral fluid specimen will not generate a colored line in the specific test line region of the strip because of drug competition, while a drug-negative oral fluid specimen will generate a line in the test line region because of the absence of drug competition. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear at the control line region, indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
The OraLert 6 Oral Fluid Drug Screen e-z oral test Device contains membrane strips coated with drug-protein conjugates on the test line, polyclonal antibody against gold-protein conjugate at the control line, and a dye pad which contains colloidal gold particles coated with antibody specific to the drugs being tested. The OraLert 6 Oral Fluid Drug Screen Device saliva drug test specimen should be collected using the collecting swab provided with the kit, following the detailed instructions under Directions for Use. No other collection devices should be used with this assay. Oral fluid collected at any time of the day may be used.
Allow the OraLert 6 Oral Fluid saliva Drug test to come to room temperature (59-86�F) prior to testing. Instruct the donor not to place anything in the mouth including food, drink, gum, or tobacco products for at least 10 minutes prior to collection.
