Oral Fluid / Saliva Testing
Oral Fluid / Saliva Drug Testing
Although not as widely utilised in the New Zealand workplace, an Oral Fluid or Saliva test kit is also available for companies whose own operational procedures have identified that this is their preferred testing process as a policy.
A simple swab taken by our qualified technicians from the inside of the mouth is collected and then tested for a range of elicit substances, giving results in a matter on minutes. Once again further analysis of the sample is available if required, with results available in most cases within 24 hours.
It should be noted that the results of an Oral Fluid test undertaken by your staff member may not meet the policies of all the work places your staff may visit or work in, with a proportionally larger number or companies preferring a Urine Test to be undertaken for all staff and contractors.

Synthetic drug abuse is growing in popularity due to misconceptions about these drugs being safer than other drugs of abuse, or the thought that synthetic drugs can't be detected on a drug test.
Synthetic drug testing is an effective substance abuse prevention measure.

Hair follicle screening offers advanced technology in detecting the history of past and current drug use.
It is more commonly used in pre-employment drug testing but also can be used in custodial and p cases. Hair follicle testing can detect up to 90 days and further possibly detecting up to 12 months of drug use and / or abuse.
Methamphetamine use is on the rise. Unfortunately, it may be present in your rental or new purchase . A carefully crafted meth-testing program can help protect against the impact of meth abuse in your rental. Most results are available within 2 working days of sampling or a faster turn around can be arranged upon request (within 24hrs) at the laboratory if needed.
