FAQs

1. GENERAL

Saliva test can detect drugs in the oral fluid 30 to 60 minutes after ingestion. This short time frame makes saliva drug testing an excellent test for post-accident and reasonable suspicion testing situations.

Category: Saliva Tests

Saliva tests have some advantages over urine tests. It is simple, easy and hygienic method compared to urine test. Collection of saliva does not require bathroom, which eliminates invasion of privacy and shy bladder issues.

It is highly unlikely to adulterate a saliva test. The risk of donor tempering with sample is very low because the collection can be easily observed. These facts could cut adulterant related cost which is very common in urine testing.

Category: Saliva Tests

The saliva test is a lab-based drug-of-abuse testing system. The collection pad is placed in donor’s mouth—lower cheek and gum—and soaked for five minutes. The collection pad is then vertically placed into the testing device and pushed to release the liquid specimen. Results are displayed on the device within appropriate time window.

  1. Nitrite tests for commonly used commercial adulterants such as Klear or Whizzies. They work by oxidizing the major cannabinoid metabolite THC-COOH. Normal urine should contain no trace of nitrite. Positive results generally indicate the presence of an adulterant
  2. Creatinine is a waste product of creatine (an amino-acid contained in muscle tissue), is a normal constituent of human urine. In specimen validity testing, creatinine is used as a marker for dilution. Specimen dilution can be either in vivo (the donor drank excessive volumes of liquids) or in vitro (liquid was added to the urine after collection) and represent the most common form of specimen tampering. In vivo dilution using diuretics is often referred to as “flushing.” Creatinine and specific gravity are often interpreted simultaneously as indicators for dilution. Low creatinine and low specific gravity levels indicate dilute urine.
  3. Glutaraldehyde is a chemical compound that, when used as an adulterant, is believed to inactivate the enzyme used in the EMIT automated drug screening reagent. Although it is not believed to produce false negative results on a lateral flow test, commercial adulteration agents UrinAid and Clear Choice still contain glutaraldehyde. Glutaraldehyde is not normally in urine so detection of the compound is generally an indication of adulteration.
  4. pH tests for the presence of acidic or alkaline adulterants in urine. Normal urine pH levels should be in the range of 4.0 to 9.0. Values outside of this range may indicate the sample has been adulterated.
  5. Specific Gravity tests for the “viscosity” of the urine sample. The SG range for normal human urine is from 1.003 to 1.030. Values outside this range should be considered abnormal and may indicate specimen tampering.
  6. Oxidant/PCC tests for the presence of oxidizing reagents such as bleach, hydrogen peroxide, and pyridinium chlorochromate (PCC). Like nitrites, oxidants work to modify the structure of the target drugs in urine (like THCCOOH). Many commercial adulterants contain oxidants or PCC. Examples include UrineLuck (PCC) and Stealth (peroxidase). Normal urine should contain no trace of oxidants/PCC. Nitrites are a class of chemicals not usually found in normal human urine. Commercial adulterants Klear and Whizzies use nitrites as their primary active ingredient. Nitrites work by oxidizing the major cannabinoid metabolite (THCCOOH). The intent of oxidizing THC-COOH is to render it undetectable by the immunoassay or confirmation methods. Recent research suggests that performing the immunoassay drug screen shortly after the urine collection limits the effectiveness of the nitrite since the chemical needs time to modify the THC-COOH compound. By the time a positive sample arrives to the lab for confirmation, however, the THC-COOH has often been destroyed. Normal human urine should contain no trace of nitrites and, as such, presence of nitrites in urine generally indicates the use of an adulterant.

Adulterants are foreign substances either ingested or added directly to urine specimen to prevent the detection of drug in the sample. Commonly uses adulterants are promoted as “cleansing agents”, these substances can be found in house hold items or chemical additives obtained through the internet.

Examples of adulterants include:

  • Baking soda
  • Bleach
  • Detergent
  • Eye drops
  • Liquid chlorine bleach
  • Liquid drain cleaner
  • Glutaraldehyde
  • Iodine tincture
  • Pyridinium chlorochromate
  • Vinegar
  • Water

 

Some commercially available products that are ingested prior to providing the urine specimen that include:

  • Amber 13
  • Clean-X
  • Clear Choice
  • Instant Clean ADD-It-ive
  • Lucky Lab LL418
  • Klear
  • Krystal Kleen
  • Mary Jane Superclean 13
