Oral Fluid Testing Overview

Oral fluids testing offers many advantages for post-accident, reasonable suspicion or any situation when the most recent drug usage needs to be detected. Ease of sample collection and the 24-48 hour time frame of detection makes this an exceptional test for these critical situations.

Oral Fluid Testing Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Oral Fluid Drug Testing?
Oral fluid 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.  
It is important to note that Omega’s oral fluid drug testing is a completely laboratory-based process.  While some instant oral fluid collection devices may be available, note that they are often not properly cleared and are not sensitive enough to detect usage of certain drug classes. It is for these reasons that a laboratory-based process must be used in order to secure valid results.
