Instant Oral Swab testing analyzes a saliva sample for parent drugs and their metabolites. An absorbent collection device is placed in the mouth and the saliva collected is screened for drugs of abuse. Samples are checked to verify the saliva is human and undiluted.
ERAM uses the Oratect III Instant Saliva Drug Test
Non-invasive Easy, No-mess Collection Procedure
With the Oratect III instant saliva drug test, collecting a saliva specimen is fast and easy to use without the mess. The Oratect III is designed to require a smaller saliva sample in order to activate the test. Less saliva means a shorter test time. The subject rubs the inside of the cheeks to stimulate saliva flow with the saliva collection pad built into the end of the Oratect III, then holds the device under the tongue until the saliva flow is visible in the results window. The collection process takes only a few minutes for most people. It spares test subjects from the unpleasantness of blood extractions and minimizes the resources necessary brought on by having to collect urine samples.
Observed Collections Reduce Cheating
Because the subject collects the saliva in the presence of the operator every collection is an Observed collection. This virtually eliminates the problems of specimen adulteration and substitution common to urine drug testing. Saliva testing also eliminates the same-gender requirement for observed urine drug testing
Detects MORE Marijuana Users
Lower cut-off levels allows you to detect more drug users. Only the parent THC molecule remains in the mouth after smoking marijuana. Because the Oratect III detects the parent THC molecule at low concentrations the Oratect III is more likely to detect a marijuana user.
Better indicator of current or recent drug use – drugs in oral fluids are easily detectable much sooner after use compared to sweat, urine or blood.
