Oral Fluid Drug Testing

More and more companies are incorporating oral fluid testing as part of their drug testing programs because:

  • the sample required is easy to collect;
  • you don’t need any specialized collection equipment or facilities;
  • it can detect drugs in a donor’s system immediately within 48 hours of use; and
  • the test is witnessed by the collector which minimizes the likelihood of sample tampering or specimen substitution.

Here’s how it works.

Dynacare’s oral fluid drug testing procedure provides a simple method of collecting drug screen specimens almost anywhere.  The donor simply places a long cotton swab in his/her mouth to retrieve a saliva sample.  S/he then returns the swab to one of our highly trained drug testing specialists who places the swab into a transport tube for shipment to the laboratory.

Our testing menu covers all major drug categories including:

  • Amphetamines - methamphetamine, methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA), methylenedioxyethylamphetamine (MDEA)
  • Cocaine (benzoylecogonine)
  • Opiates - codeine, morphine, 6-acetyl morphine (6-AM), oxycodone
  • Phencyclidine (PCP)
  • Marijuana - THC Parent, THCA
  • Barbiturates (SECOBARB)
  • Benzodiazepines (Oxazepam)
  • Methadone (EDDP)
  • Propoxyphene (PPX)
  • Alcohol (ETOH)

Negative results are generally available within 24 hours after specimens are received at our laboratory. Confirmation of a presumptive positive test is usually available within 72 hours.
